Hello,If you could get a 3009 or a 5008 for around the same price which would people get?
Hello,I am new to all this HT set up and I am trying to do it myself so this may seem like a stupid question. I am buying a Onkyo 709 receiver. It will control my 5.2 set up for my HT area. I want to put 6 more speakers in the basement. 2 in fitness room and 2 in game room and 2 out by the pool. I want the ability to only listen to them 2 at a time. I am assuming I will need a different receiver for this ability. I was thinking about running the 2 in the fitness room off the HT 709 receiver? If i do that what woudl be a good receiver for the 2 speakers in game room and the 2 outdoor speakers by the pool. Dont want to spend o ton of money on that receiver but do want something that will be able to power decent outddor speakers as well as have wireless ipod touch compatibility.
Thanks in advance on any direction to take.
PS - i am in a hurry. I am running speaker wire. My drywallers will start wednesday.
To clarify that would be zones 2&3 right?Jungle Jack said:Hello,
The problem with most inexpensive AVR's is that you can only task 2 Channels to another Zone if at all. Most 9 Channel AVR's do allow you to use 4 Channels for 2 Zones.
