  4. System Setup and Connection
    I am using 7.1 surround set up with Zone 2 B Speaker configuration. The outside speaker are connected directly to receiver on front wide speaker ports per manual. Sound is less than desirable and you need to crank the volume to hear them. I connected the speaker to the main system just to...

    I have an Onkyo tx-nr616. I am trying to send an audio signal to a power amp for the rest of the house. The onkyo will not link the volume of zone 2 to the main volume and it will continue to play another input after the main input has changed. This amp is disappointing. The hdmi out to the tv...

    I'm looking for a 5.1 receiver for my family room/great room area, which will also run two additional speakers to a nearby a zone 2 (via speaker wire, not RCA) when I'm streaming Pandora, radio, etc. I will also have a dedicated home theater, so this family room space will be more for casual...

I am confused as to where to connect the inputs (if there are any) from the 2311CI. Or do I have to use a strait amp only and not...
  12. System Setup and Connection
    Howdy- I installed a new Denon AVR 2313 and pretty much connected everything with HDMI cables. I'm using the amp/speakers in my main room in "5.1 mode".

    Why are there so few 2 and 3 zone receivers on the market in the middle price range? It seems like there used to be more. Also, alot of 2 zone receivers state they are 2 zone BUT they require a 2nd amplifier for the second zone which is kind of silly to me. I have an old Denon 2805 multi-zone...
