    After what seems to be endless posts here the conclusion for what I am looking for: To add speakers to my Living Room and Dining room might be best resolved using a separate receiver rather than adding an amp to my current HT set-up to power more speakers. I like this option becuase it will also provide me with a bit more flexibility in the set up as well.

    The question is, what receiver can power 6 speakers at the same time with about 75 to 100 watts? I know most units are designed to run HT set ups, but I need a receiver that will send the SAME volume levels and signals to all 6 channels. It will be used for tuner, CD, and DTV music only. I would need decent power, but nothing earth shattering.

    I don't want to purchase a receiver like my Denon 3802 that does not have a true A & B selector. Any advice?

    Maybe a Yamaha RX-V3300 will do what you're looking for.

    On the lower end, my pioneer vsx-d912k does this, it's called 6-channel stereo in which, like you want, the same volume level is sent through all 6 speakers. I like using this for watching TV and the radio, it definitely fills the room more. I picked mine up for $300 about a month ago. Not sure if you want something more high end though.
