    Looking for inexpensive rcvr with multi zone/multi component capability. Price range would be around $400-600 street price. Are there any??

    No.

    Niles just came out with a 6 zone receiver that lists for $2295. That's about as low as I've seen. Add keypads and speakers and installation and you are easily in the $5K plus range. Multi-zone is not a "cheap" or inexpensive item. The cost of admission is still substantial. The best you can hope for is a receiver that may have a second room option in your price range. You'll still need separate amplificaiton. Good luck.

    The Onkyo 696 comes close to what you are seeking, but it is in the $700-$800 range. It has the ability to reassign the surround channels to drive a pair of speakers using a second source in a second zone. The drawback is that you can not listen to 5.1 while the second zone is in use.
    I hope this helps! [​IMG]

    if you are talking about multi "room" option than there are a lot out there. multi "zone" is different i guess. i thought they meant the same thing. shows you what i know[​IMG] anyway, the yamaha rx-v1200 and 2200 do multi room. you will need another amp or dummy receiver to power the other room. the denon 2802 and 3802 also do multiroom. i think the yamah 1200 and denon 2802 can be found in your price range. both are excellent and high quality receivers. good luck.
