Bumping my rx-a810 questions from before (sorry!). But re-phrasing them very simply:
1. Is it bad for the amplifier/receiver to daisy chain two front 8ohm speakers per channel? I am considering doing this in lieu of having front presence speakers, so that I can free up my zone two. Also, does anyone have an opinion on how different that will sound compared to the standard 7.1 setup with Front Presence? FYI, I am not running any rear surround speakers at all.
2. Can anybody recommend a streaming solution that allows me to stream ALL audio from my computer(s) through my wifi network? Not just files, but all audio that comes out of my machine's sound card? Using Messmo now, but it won't allow me to stream Spotify, for example (I don't think). I also use music production software and want it to come out of my zone 2 speakers when I work on digital music.
Any tips much appreciated...
