Hey, just moved into a new build that has 6 speakers in 3different zones that are rated 8ohms / 60 watts. What do I do with this? There are no volume controls anywhere. What size receiver or amp do I need and do I need a seperate speaker selector? Just looking to play music
 
There are different ways to set up a music system. It would depend on your budget and needs.
The old school way would be a stereo receiver or integrated amp with an impedance matching speaker selector with or without volume controls for each pair.
If you got a receiver like the new Denon DRA-800H that has Heos streaming built in and app control. It has HDMI and phono inputs so would work with video and a turntable too. You could use an AVR is you want surround sound.
You would not be able to listen to different sources in different rooms. You could add 1 or 2 Denon HeosAmps to create separate zones.
You could use three Sonos Amps or Denon HeosAmps to create a multiroom multizone system with individual control of each room using the app. Using a receiver doesn't cost much more and allows for more flexibility.
Sonos doesn't make receivers.
