I am using a Denon AVR 788. Most of my speakers are in storage. I have a pair of Klipsh RF-82's hooked up to to the front A. Can I run the speakers through both front A and B or Rear L/R so that I can play two different inputs through them simultaneously i.e. a game system with sound effects on and my own music from a separate output source? Really do not want to damage the speakers or amp of course. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Another incentive to start looking at houses then so there's room for the rest of my setup. Thanks a lot!

I may have misread your first post ... are you trying trying to play the 2 sources through both sets of speakers at the same time or simply play one source through 1 set of speakers and another source through another set of speakers? If the latter, then yes, you can connect the 2nd set of speakers to the Surr Back/Amp Assign speaker posts and set Amp Assign to Zone 2. You can then play one source to the Front A speakers and another (analog only) source to the Zone 2 speakers.

You understood correctly.

I've used the multi set of speaker set up with Zone 2 plenty of times but currently only have one set of speakers out of storage. I was trying to play 2 sources through the same set (only 2) speakers.

I believe the speakers themselves could do it if wired to 2 separate sources entirely but there seems to be no way to have the receiver funnel 2 sources connected to it through the one set of speakers.

Ah .. no then as that would require a mixer, a feature that AVRs are not designed to do.
