I have all of the Sooloos zones worked out in my home to my liking with the exception of a setup in my bedroom. It is listed in my profile as system 4. I am thinking in theory that I can do the following to accomplish my goals.

1. Place a 218 in my media closet and connect it to my network via a cat5e network connection.
2. Use the Speakerlink output from the 218 connected to a ethernet cable from my switch to the ethernet jack that is in the bedroom.
3. Connect the ethernet cable in the bedroom to a AC12 to receive digital input and comms to 518

Hopting this will give me an endpoint that I can control from my iPad using the Sooloos app. Have full functionality including source and volume selection. Input on subject matter would be appreciated.

I've probably misunderstood but speakerlink and network switches won't mix

Bad description on my part. Path would be SL direct from 218 to AC12 via cat 5e cable.

I see no problem why it shouldnt work as long as your wall plugs just have a 1:1 connection(like a straight cable).What you want to do with the 518, using as a preamp for a analogue system ?

In my System 5, I am using the 518's AES/EBU output to AES/EBU input on the DBX VEnue360.
