I want to create a multiroom with max2play.
I have 6 speakers.
Can I realize it with 3 Rasperry PIs (so each speaker for one mono-channel)?
And also control each speaker separate?
And my next question is, how many licenses do I have to buy?
Is there a blog/guide to a realize this scenario?
Thank you a lot in advance

You can realize this with the MultiSqueeze Plugin of ours to create a second player with a different output. However, you need to decide which output you want to use for each. If you have active speakers, you need a DAC HAT and can use the audio jack or HDMI output of the Pi if supported.
If you want to use passive speakers, you need an Amp HAT. However, we only recommend using one output for one Pi with Amp HATs. There are some DIY guides on splitting the outputs, though.
You can buy one license for your whole system, but our development is supported by license so we appreciate all purchases.1. November 2018 at 9:34 #41779

It really depends on what you want from your amp bundle. The JB amp has an infrared receiver included in the package to solder yourself and use for control. Otherwise there are some more differences you can check out in our comparison chart for Amp HATs11. November 2018 at 10:01 #41924
I will take the amp2.
One last question.
If I buy the amp2, can I just put it on my other pi/amp at the top?
Or do I need further hardware?
