I have an Onkyo TX-8050, and while not a true surround sound system, it has been a good receiver for my modest needs. Id like to create a second zone and control it through their wireless remote app.
The second zone would be about 30' away in the basement. Can anyone recommend a good amp for this?
The plan would be to have the onkyo receiver control the volume and hopefully be turned on and off by sensing zone 2 getting turned on.
Because zone 2 will be in the basement, would I better having the amp next to the receiver or down in the basement?
I have never setup a system like this and not sure what to look out for.
