    Hi it would be great to hear you opinions on what receiver + amp (if necessary) would power me right. Here is what I have:
    - 5.1 minx s325 speakers in main tv area
    - l/r wired ceiling speakers in kitchen (will only ever play same source as 5.1 but need to turn on/off)
    - 2 sets of exterior speakers wired (to play either same sound as 5.1 or something else simultaneously)
    Budget around 1,200 for the receiver + amp
    Would ideally love to control all from my iPad.
    Thanks!

    All three of those will accomplish what you want without any outside help. Other than one of these to choose porch/kitchen....
