From a management perspective I want to be able to manage the room speakers individually.  My goal was always to be able to manage the room speakers individually so that if i want it louder outside ( or completely off a night and probably most of the time ) i'm able to adjust the volume or on/off through the AVR remote or IOS application.  These individual rooms are all through the speaker switch in zone 2 so whichever will allow me to achieve that goal.

 

I do not see anything for a powered zone 2 in the manual for the X3000, looking specifically at the amplifier rating I see below.

 

Power amplifier
Rated output: Front:
105 W + 105 W (8 Ω/ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz with 0.08 % T.H.D.)
135 W + 135 W (6 Ω/ohms, 1 kHz with 0.7 % T.H.D.)
Center:
105 W (8 Ω/ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz with 0.08 % T.H.D.)
135 W (6 Ω/ohms, 1 kHz with 0.7 % T.H.D.)
Surround:
105 W + 105 W (8 Ω/ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz with 0.08 % T.H.D.)
135 W + 135 W (6 Ω/ohms, 1 kHz with 0.7 % T.H.D.)
Surround back:
105 W + 105 W (8 Ω/ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz with 0.08 % T.H.D.)
135 W + 135 W (6 Ω/ohms, 1 kHz with 0.7 % T.H.D.)

Nevermind the power, i think the work around would be to just get another pre-out zone and manage the external speakers that way using 2 speaker switches as you indicated previously.   I read through your previous notes and it answered lot of my questions in that regard, thanks again.  One question regarding the AVR's.

 

The Pioneer SC-1523-K 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver vs the Denon X4000, looks like the Pioneer is like 600 bucks off right now on Amazon.they seem pretty similar spec wise.  Only thing I notice so far is it doesn't offer Sirius as a service while Denon does ( i use sirius ) but not sure thats ultimately a factor for that cost difference.

The main advantage to the Pioneer is the 9 channels it has. While Amazon has them around $780 as a warehouse deal(last I checked)...raging bargain.
