How do you join rooms together dynamically? That is one of my primary requirements. It sounds like you have gone almost the exact same route as me.

This is a very cost effective setup:
Provides six rooms of stereo amps $649
NSLU as music source $80
USB disk $100
USB 1.0 hub and 4 USB audio cards $100 (USB 2.0 hub must be multi-TT)
I run four copies of mpd on the NSLU2.
Existing Nokia N800 with mpd client for remote control.
This setup has some drawbacks but it is very cost effective at
$150/room plus speakers.
My house had speakers with volume controls in each room installed by
the previous owner.
30W/channel amps are plenty for background music. HTD sells
60W/channel but you won't need it.
