I am a complete novice when it comes to home audio systems .... I do not even know the appropriate terminology to use when asking about them. With that said, I will try to explain what I am looking for and would appreciate input/advice on what to purchase:
I live in a house with a 1200 sq main floor; it is rectangular with large openings between rooms. Ceilings are ~9'. I like to listen to music in the living room/dining room and also have speakers in the kitchen. I would like to be able to listen to am/fm radio, have a cd player, and also be able to connect my ipod. If possible, I would like to have wireless speakers or some speakers that are wireless (e.g. the ones in the kitchen). I listen to talk radio, jazz, blues, and rock/pop music from the 70s and 80s. I do not need to hook a TV up to this system.
