Ok so I have a couple outdoor speakers. My old receiver had a separate B channel that I could use for those, my new receiver does not but it does have a "Zone 2" feature. I'm looking for something with RCA inputs with speaker level outs that would go to the outdoor speakers. I know something like that is out there I just don't know what it's called! Thanks

It's called an amplifier.

If your receiver does not have speaker terminals for zone 2, or if those terminals are in use, you'll need one.

You asked a similar question back in January in the 2311 Owner's thread ... the answer hasn't changed ... a basic 2CH amp like this one will do.
