It can't be any more than 14" deep to fit in my cabinet. Any suggestions?

Just to confirm: By "amp", you mean a power amp? How many channels? And is there a price restriction?

Outlaw has this amp ($379, 12V trigger, 11.5" deep), but it may not be what you're looking for.

Thanks for the response. I definitely need to provide more info and correct a mistake.

Looking for a receiver (not amp). Needs to have a second zone so I can run 5.1 and a 2.0 zones. My Denon AVR-2807 does everything that I need it to do, it's just too deep for my new setup. I like the Onkyo TX-NR626, except that it doesn't have a 12V trigger. There really isn't a hard budget, but I don't want to spend a whole lot extra just for a 12V trigger.

Thanks

What is the 12v trigger for, if I may ask?

The Denon AVR-X3000 is too deep.

The Onkyo NR-828 is too deep.

ThePioneer SC-1523-K is too deep and too expensive.

ThePioneer Elite VSX-70 is barely too deep.

The[http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Elite+Receivers/VSX-43]Pioneer Elite VSX-43[/url] might work. I need to do more research.

The[http://store.sony.com/es-7.2-channel-wi-fi-a-v-receiver-zid27-STRDA1800ES/cat-27-catid-All-ES-Home-Theater-Components?_t=pfm%3Dcategory]Sony STRDA1800ES[/url] might work too.

Did I miss any?

Remember you'll need room behind to connect wires and clearance for cooling. Can you cut out the back of the cabinet? That is what I did to mine. Easier access, better cooling, and accommodates better gear.

The 14" gives me the extra room that I need to make my connections. The 12V trigger will be used for supplemental fans. The more I think about it, a triggered 120V A/C plug would work too.

I know what a 12v trigger does. What I meant was answered in your last post. For fan use. It's going to be hard to find an AVR for the depth you need, especially with a 12v trigger or a switched plug on the back of it. The 5.1 channel Yamaha below will meet your depth requirements but doesn't have either. You could add a power strip with the switches you need.
