    Squeezebox and multiple speakers

    Hi, I'm looking for the least expensive way to use a Squeezebox device plus speakers in multiple rooms.

    What I have now:
    * Synology DS211J which I can use as a Squeezebox server
    * I do not have any significant stereo system, just a multi-DVD player (not useful here as far as I can tell

    What I would like:
    * Wireless connection to Logitech Squeezebox (but wired if necessary)
    * Speakers in multiple locations (3 to be exact)
    * Speakers need not be stereo
    * Adding Wireless speakers preferred

    So, if anyone has suggestions on which Logitech Squeezebox to purchase, plus specific speakers that would work in my situation, I would really appreciate it.

    Also, I am very good with computers, so anything networking-wise I can handle.

    You may want to look at three radios ..

    .. Since they seem to fit the bill, assuming that your rooms are of reasonable size.
    - wireless
    - mono seems not be an issue to you

    Follow-up

    Follow-up question. If I have 3 Squeezebox radios, and they are all synch'ed (not sure how).
    Then I select a new song or change to Pandora radio, do all 3 change to the same? [I would want them all to change together.]

    Thanks
