Okay I have a dilema. The Denon 3805 only has a 7 channel amp in it, yet it does have Zone 2 support. So, you either run a 5.1 system and a zone 2, and have everything amped interally, or if you have 7.1 in one room, you need an amp to power the zone 2 speakers. However, I was wondering if this amp is configurable in any way, as in, if I externally amped the fronts/center/surround, could I configure the Denon to internally amp both my surround rears and my zone 2 speakers? Basically, some of the interal amps I know wouldn't be used, so this should be allowed. The idea is that my f/c/surrounds are WAY better then my SB's and z2 speakers, and are higher rated, so I really just want my Denon to amp those for me, and let me amp my higher end F/C/Surrounds. Please let me know if this is possible or if you need me to clarify anything. Thanks!
