Forgive me for the stupidness but I have been using this receiver for years and I only use it for normal 2-ch stereo mode, I have 1 pair of speakers hooked up to the "Front" section. I also have my powered sub hooked up too. I would like to have another set of Left/Right speakers in another room that will play the same audio/source that I play in the main room. Normally I would see a front speaker A & B hookup on a reciever but this one has what is called Multi-Zone. Is that the same thing? Will it work for what I want it to do?

Yes. Page 10 of the manual. Go into menu System Setup and select "Power Amp Assignment".
Change surround back to multi. There you go. Another set of front left/right speakers.

Thanks for the reply! Will the volume control turn up all 4 speakers at the same time? Or will the second set on Multi-Zone have a separate control? I hope the volume controls them together

I'm pretty sure the volume controls both sets the same. You would
need a zone 2 feature for separate volume controls.

The 1082 is a multizone receiver. you can play different sources in each room. Straight from the product literature.

Oops. I'm so used to it called zone 2. That thing is old. So the volume's would be independent correct?

My initials are GT. And I was born near SF. Still a 49er/giants fan. I've never seen a receiver that had 3 sets
of surround without at least a speaker A & B or bi-amping. Now how to control the volume of that second zone?

Here's the manual. Read pages 25 & 26.

I don't have the second set of speakers yet, should be delivered next week or that I will test and mess around with it to see if it works, however I hope I can play the same source in both rooms and turn the volume up and have both sets of speakers turn up the same time
