Excuse me if this is a basic question, I basically have been out of the loop in audio/video hardware for many years. Our present setup is a stereo receiver located in living room with a set of in-wall speakers in the kitchen set as "B" speakers. The receiver has died and I have spousal permission to make the plunge in setting up a home theater. It is mandatory that I be able to hook up the kitchen speakers to be able to play CDs and radio out there. The number and visibility of components is a big issue, too. I had my heart set on a HK AVR8000, but upon reviewing the manual online, it looks like I would have to add an outboard amp for the kitchen speakers. This won't do. Have A/B speaker selections been basically eliminated from AVRs? Is there a simple way to solve this problem and rescue my home theater dreams? A possible alternate is to build a whole new HT in our new basement addition. Any books or sources of info on how to do this? In that case, I would be looking for a plain jane stereo receiver for the living room with A/B speaker capability. Any reccomendations?
