    Kind of an off-beat question not related to HT, but I need a receiver that can power 3 pair of stereo speakers and was hoping that one of the HT receivers had a 6 channel stereo mode that might work.

    Anybody?

    Take your pick. That's a very common DSP mode and just about any receiver will have it.

    They have a "5-channel stereo" mode which, with 5 speakers, is obviously not 3 stereo pairs. And even if that mode is used with a 6 speaker setup it's still not 3 stereo pairs.

    The "5-channel stereo" mode sends some sort of combined left/right signal to the center speaker and I'm not certain what it sends to the surrounds, exactly, but it won't really get you what you want.

    You're better off just getting a non-HT, multizone integrated amplifier if you want multiple stereo pairs.

    Answered my own question. Using a 7.1 receiver that also allows a 2nd zone using internal amps. The 2nd zone is always stereo and the primary zone can be configured for no center and can then be run in all channnel stereo.

    My Denon has 6 channel stereo and if I trun off the rear surround it switches into 5 channel stereo.

    This article will introduce a step by step guide on how to change audio channel between 6 channel, 5.1 channel, 2 channel stereo, mono and etc. Then it is just easy to achieve the following demand: at How to Convert Video Audio Channel to 2 Channel, 5.1 Channel, or Mono?

    [*]Convert 5.1 to 2 channel stereo like convert H.264 MP4 5.1 audio to 2-channel stereo source so as to play MP4 with 5.1-channel on Xbox 360.
    [*]Convert 6 channel to 2 channels like convert 6 channel AC3 to 2 channel MP2 or convert an MKV 6 channel audio to 2 channel stereo without affecting video quality.
    [*]Convert 2 channel to 5.1 channel like turn a dual channel wav file into 5.1 AC3 format; convert MP3 2 channel to 5.1 channel, convert 2 channel stereo to 5.1 surround sound
    [*]Convert 2 channel audio into 6 channel to get surround sound in order to listen surround sound from home theater.
    [*]Convert 6 channel to stereo like converting 6 channel CAF, OGG, AAC to stereo wave files or 2 channel AC3
    [*]Convert multiple-channel to mono like 5.1/6 channel to mono, 2 channel stereo to mono and etc.
