I replaced an old 8 zone amp with 6 Vail Amp 3s to power the 6 zones (Living, Dining, Kitchen, Hall, Decks and Pool Room) in our vacation beach house. The old amp was difficult and confusing for our us and our guests to opperate. I replaced the existing wall mounted volume controls with the Vail Amps and Echo Dots. Everything needed for the installation is included and installation and setup is simple. Also included with each amp is a separate plate with auxiliary input & subwoofer connections. I added 1 subwoofer which gave a nice bass through out the house. Only drawback I found with the system is that the auxiliary input only works on the amp to which is is connected thus we can't use an auxiliary source throughout the entire system. Operation could not be simpler, just tell Alexa what you want to listen to, either in a select zone or throughout the house. If you are an audiophile who likes lots of dials, switches and touch screens this is not the system for you. If you want awesome sound that is amazingly easy to install, reasonable priced, and a joy to use the Vail Amp 3 can't be beat.
Pros: Awesome sound, simple to install, amazingly easy to use.
Cons: Auxiliary Input only feeds 1 zone.
