My biggest problem with my own system......I have a Zigbee remote, a Sonos remote and a Universal Aurora. I love all three systems.....but cannot consolidate the remote controls, as the three are incompatible technologies....aaaarrrrgggh! Even if I had $15,000 to throw down on an AMX system, I couldn't work around this.
Having owned both Crestron and AMX - I would recomend Crestron.
Do you really need $15,000 worth if you are in the biz? The cost on one of those systems should be more than 4 or 5k if you are the programmer. Maybe I am missing the scope of the gear you need such as a 17 inch touch pannel (saw an AMX one at CEDIA that was HUGE!!!)
