I have a main source which is a 5.1 stereo for my living room tv for movies and music. I also have a zone 2 for my outside deck and a zone 3 for my two bathrooms. I am looking for a reciever for to allow for me to do this..

If needed with a 2 zone reciever i could add the bathrooms and the back deck onto the zone 2 together. I do want airplay.

Any recommendations?? Do I need to get amps to the zone 2 and/or 3 ? I haven't a clue, help!!

With that many extra speakers to Zones 2 and 3, you'll want to get an AVR with Zone 2 pre-outs to an external 2CH amp (see below) which can then be connected to a 4 Zone speaker selector in which you can then connect your speakers. The Denon 1713 would be the lowest model that would fit the bill as a 5.1 AVR with Zone 2 pre-outs.

You may also want to review post #2 of the Denon AVR-XX13 Owner's thread linked in my sig to see a comarison of the various models.
