My new house is almost finished, and the A/V contractor will be there this week to install the ceiling speakers & wall controls.  I have a pair of Proficient 610 being installed in the following rooms (8 speakers total):

  • Master bath
  • Home office
  • Kitchen
  • Family room

I'd like some advice on a stereo receiver/amp that has zone 3 capabilities (the kitchen & family room are open & next to each other, so they can be in the same zone.  My audio sources for the system will be analog:

  • Rocki
  • Logitech UE Smart Radio

Both inputs are controlled by our android phones, so it would be nice to be able to control the receiver via android as well, but not a deal breaker. This receiver will be stored in a closet by the speaker panel, and won't be used for any home theater functions.  Can a single receiver power this system?  Not looking for a top of the line system; just something that I can send 2 different powered analog sources to 3 different zones.

 

Thanks!

The Denon 897, if you can still find one. That is the only one there ever was.

Doing some further research I came across the Russound X75.  Since both my inputs are smartphone controlled, I can use a pair of these to power my 3/4 zones.

That is not a dual-zone amplifier.

But it is only 2 zone. You wanted 3.
