Thanks again to Ryan for the ordering tip on the 673.
Mine arrived without a hitch... 3 days after placing an order for the 671.
As I convert the set up from my old receiver (Yam RX-V2095) to the new one, I find myself with different connection options and have a question. Hopefully someone can help.
Current Home Theater arrangement:
Sub, Front, Center, Presence, Surround
Remote Stereo Speakers:
Bedroom, Kitchen, Outside Deck
Previously, I simply attached all the "remote" speakers to my receiver via a selector box at the aux main speaker connections. That isn't available now.
Now, it looks like my options are...
1, Make my remote speakers the "Zone 2" (but then what do I do with the Presence Speaker connection)
2, Connect the remote speakers jointly with the Front Speakers (but this won't allow me to utilize the "bi-amp" connection on the Home Theater set up)
Finally... it looks like the preamp will only accommodate the Bi-amp set up, or the Zone 2 set up... but not both (without changing the settings menu).
Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance!
