    I bought a foreclosure condo that has 4 sets of speaker craft speakers in the 4 different areas and two of the areas are wired (hdmi) for tvs as well. I need an av receiver that can handle the the two av zones as well as the two additional audio zones. I dont want to spend tons of money and hook up a crestron or a control4 system. If a four zone system doesnt exist then I can deal with a two av zone and an additional 1 audio zone. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks!

    The other AVR meant for your situation... Elite SC65, Onkyo NR1010, Marantz SR7007 and Integra DTR 70.3. (and in each brand...the rest of the AVR when you "move up" the line)

    Yamaha also has HDMI ZoneB on the RX-A820 and up, but I've never read one of the manuals to see what the difference is between ZoneB HDMI and Zone 2 like "everybody else does it". Slight edit: The RX-A "blurb" says "simultaneous" for everything...and then the A3020(the top model) actually says... "8 (1 front) / 2 (assignable for zone)"

    the only reciever i have been able to find with 4 true powered zones is the integra 70.4 (http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/receivers/integra-research-dtr-70.4-pre)
