    Hi ,

    Need help to design HT plus zone 2/3. All speakers inbuilt. Need to understand how I can make it all come together in a user friendly way. HT = 7.2 . zone 2= is living 4speakers. zone 3 =outdoor 2 speakers. Keeping to budget I'm considering Onkyo 608 or 708 and yamaha 767.

    with Nad http://www.smarthouse.com.au/Real_Sound/Amplifiers/F4Q3R6K8 to add 4 amp channels for living room.

    these receivers only allow zone 2 operation so I need to understand how I can effectively use this equipment to get good usability. I suppose I just have to go to the equip rack whenever i want to fire up the two outdoor speakers? Or perhaps one pair of the living room (zone 2 speakers) could be physically switchable with the Zone 3 pair of outdoor speakers) allowing zone two and 3 to operate at the same time.? I may need to add wall mounted volume controls to allow independant vol control in zone 2? Also need help choosing amp power for 2 inbuilt passive subs. Any help greatly appreciated. cheers
