Sorry not sure if this is in the right section plus my basic knowledge but am looking to learn about creating a home network (I think this is what I mean). It is one part of technology that has passed me by from only ever living in a rented flat and having all technology in one room!
I have just purchased a new house, which I will be completing a total rennovation on including rewiring. What are the advantages of me installing cat 6 around the house, and how much is it likely to cost? I am planning the below and would be good to know whether Cat 6 will enable me to listen to music and watch tv around the house?
Sitting room - just a TV and potential soundbar in the future
Music/dining room - My stereo (rotel ra-12 amp, marantz cd6005, and Q acoustics 2050i speakers) and laptop (with all stored music)
Bedroom 1st floor - Want to buy a mini system something like the Marantz 610 to listen to music (or something more appropriate), and maybe a tv (sky/virign from downstairs)
Office 1st floor - Would be good to listen to the mini system or other but not a priority
Cinema room 2nd floor - I've got a optoma 720p projector and would like to watch sky/virgin from the downstairs box
Thanks any help about how I can do this, or advice on where I can read up on doing it would be much appreciated.
