Selecting which speakers to output on SA-5

I am thinking about using the SoundTouch SA-5 for a dual purpose:
- Connect to build in speakers in the ceiling using traditional cable wire
- Connect to 251 outdoor speakers
Is it possible to plug both sets of speakers into the same SA-5 but somehow select which speakers to output?  I don't want to blast music outside when we're listening to the ceiling speakers and similarly, don't want to play music inside when we're sitting outside in the back yard.

Re: Selecting which speakers to output on SA-5

HI Marten, 

The SA-5 does have outputs for two sets of speakers, but they cannot be controlled individually. Turning on the amp will always cause all attached to play. To establish two independent zones of audio with the type of separate control and playback you describe, two SA-5 amps would be needed.

Hope this answers your question.
