power multiple amp+ pis

Hello all,

I recently bought my first Pi and amp+ combo, and am using it to replace my old squeezeboxes. It's working great so far. I have 7 zones in my house, and all of them get wired to the same place in the house. I was wondering what would be the most efficient way to power them.

CCTV power supplies usually seem to only have 1.1amps per channel, which I understand would not be enough. There are also "Y-adpaters" for a 2.1DC plug (http://www.amazon.com/JACKYLED-Female-Power-Splitter-Cable/dp/B004EAMFDC/ref=pd_sim_421_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0SA6F1CMK75PQ0D6D13G). Is something like that safe to use on a bunch of amp+ boxes, assuming I buy a big enough power supply to feed the splitter? I'd prefer to clean up the wires by not having a ton of small power supplies.
