Audio system for 3 zones in Office space

OK I need some help with something I am not to familiar with.

I need to get back ground music into 3 different areas of our building, We already have an MP3 player that plays our hold music and I will most likely use that as our audio source.

I need to figure out what to do to get an amp and a mixer to drive speakers in the ceiling in 3 areas that are not close together. One will be nearly 200 feet away.

I have been researching 70V systems to run that distance and because you have to use twisted wire I figure it should work.

We are looking at around 12-20 speakers all depending on the final configuration.

Also I have a rack so anything rack mount would be a good thing.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Home theater collections often have rack mounted amps with good audio. For high fi you need good speakers which can be expensive and hard to mount in the ceiling. With just the one source (MP3) you do not need a miser.
If you do not want unusually good audio, visit your local Radio Shack store. They will be happy to recommend reasonable items.

It will be background music so I am not worried about high quality speakers.

I am not thinking Radio shack has 70Volt systems.
