    I am curious, there are more and more receivers and pre/pros out there that are claiming 2,3 and sometimes even 4 independent zones for 2 channel stuff, how many people are really using the multi-zone feature?
    What are your thoughts for or against?
    How is set up?
    Thanks.

    Hey Curtis I have a Sony DB940 reciever and it has the multi zone feature in it and I love it. when I first got it I figured I wouldn't use it but now I do all the time. Say if I'm playing my playstation 2 through the reciever and I don't want to listen to the games audio I just flip on the second zone and listen to the radio while I play. Great feature. [​IMG]

    I also have the DB940 and I love having the second zone feature during the summer. I can load up the CD changer and entertain the wife and kids all afternoon by the pool while I enjoy a ballgame or movie with my system going full blast inside. Prior to getting the DB940 I was stuck listening to the crappie TV speakers while they listened to music by the pool. It definitely improve my summer afternoons!
