Music bleeding at zero volume
@ three_easy_payments,It is evidently difficult for the self proclaimed geniuses.  The love of thy own voice coupled with all-knowing cranial prowess leaves a lot to be desired by the masses when it is consistently displayed in the form of condesc... 
Cookies. Just another reason AGon sucks
@tonnesen , indeed the noise floor is elevated again with parrots and cockatiels chattering incessantly.  Signal is hard to find at times.  
Overrated/Underrated

Adcom gfa 555 or 5400
My experience with Adcom amps is kind of dated (late 80s to early 90s) but I did have access to their line as a salesman and purchased several models on accommodation during that time.  My memory of those two amps specifically are, the 555 had goo... 
What's your favorite speaker finish?
Waterfall Bubinga or Flame Mahogany - depending on the size of speaker and figuring of grain.  Outside of speakers in waterfall bubinga, our kitchen table never ceases to elicit wow responses from all who’ve sat at it with us.  Deep waterfall effe... 
Speaker Positioning
Some good advice given by some knowledgeable members. Some useless ramblings by a few blokes that love the sound of their own voice.   Sounds like you found the intelligent posts and making headway on your quest.  Congrats and enjoy the journey!

Splitting cable - degradation of signal
Former cable tech - do you have home run lines to each location and the ability to add more home runs?  If you have home runs then you have the option of getting up to 8 ports with equal signal and return from a Unity Gain amplifier.  Passive spli... 
All New Magico A5 Loudspeakers // Biggest "BANG" For Your BUCK On The Market ?!
