Sony Receiver to Russound Home Audio System

Hi folks! I've read a few items on here about getting power to my Russound audio system throughout my home, and that information was helpful. After getting the right power adapters to the Russound A-4HD panels, I now have power to the A-KP panels throughout the home. In comes my next hurdle

I have a Sony STR-DN840 receiver which doesn't have any RCA audio outputs that I can tie into the Russound A-4HD audio input panel. What is the recommended way to get audio out of the Sony receiver to the home audio system? Do I get an adapter to go from speaker wire to RCA? I figured I'd ask the pros here before I went and started buying cables. Thanks in advance!

Or should I just bypass the use of the Sony receiver altogether and get a dedicated bluetooth receiver with RCA outputs that can just live in this space? We likely will only use bluetooth audio for the home sound system, so maybe just simplifying the whole thing would be good?

If this is the case, does anyone recommend a decent and relatively inexpensive audio receiver with RCA audio outputs that will suffice for this system?
