How can I add a power amp into FireConnect?

I have a Pioneer VSX-832 on the way and just now noticed it has no pre-amp out connections at all. I was replacing my old Pioneer Elite VSX-74TXVi with it since we moved into a new home, but it has a more formal living room and no additional entertainment space anyway. The house was wired with ceiling speakers in the living room for 5.1, and good enough for my now old ears anyway, lol.

However, there are additional speakers in the kitchen and outside in the pool enclosure. With the old receiver I just used RCA outputs to an external power amp for each of those. Now I have no idea how to do this. It says the receiver has Fireconnect. Is there any kind of adapter/receiver which would be on the Fireconnect network, but instead of a speaker just have the RCA jacks I could then connect to the power amp already in place?

I tried searching the net and this site, but likely using the wrong terms because I'm not finding much

We have company coming to visit in just a couple of weeks, so I hope to narrow down what I need and get things ordered before we have a crowd out at the pool!

Thanks for any direction or product options!

Look at Yamaha MusicCast - there are various MusicCast Zone/Room Players you can use with the New AVR.
