    Why does Yamaha refuse to split the sixth channel? I just upgraded from an Onkyo TXDX 797 to a Yamaha RX-V3300. I love the great clean sound but wish I could get 7.1 instead of 6.1. I do realize there really is no 7.1, however, I sure do like the signal being split.

    your only option would be to buy a separate two channel amp and split the signal.

    You can easily connect 2 Surround-Back speakers to the single speakeroutput, and the result will be the same.
    Only consern is that the speakers you use should not have to low impedance, 8 ohm is preferable. Not sure if this is a matter of consern if you don`t play extremely loud, though.

    I have a Yamaha DSP-AZ2 myself (a tunerless non-US version of RX-V3300), and use this setup.

    Karl,

    Does that then split the wattage in half?
