Hey guys - new to the forum and to home audio in general (still trying to learn the lingo). I am searching for a user-friendly, dual zone AVR for my home. Here are some of the details on what I'm trying to do, and what I want:

 

- Easy to use/navigate

-3.1 wired setup inside (for watching TV/movies, and listening to music)

-2 wired, outdoor speakers on the deck (may add 2 more at a later date)

-AirPlay enabled, and the ability to watch tv inside while listening to music on iOS device outside

-Individual volume control inside & outside

-Inputs for TV, CD Player, DVD/BluRay, any other components ill need to make this work.

 

-Price range for AVR/additional components to make Zone 2 work is around $500-$800 but could spend a little more (or less) if need be

-I hardly ever turn up the music/tv that loud, but would prefer something with mid-level power if that makes sense.

 

I'll continue to research this forum, but if you have any suggestions or need more info...let me know. Thanks!

 

-Jon

The Denon X2000 would fit your budget nicely and meet all of your requirements.

I would recommend the Yamaha v675. I just picked one yo a couple of weeks ago and it's definitely worth a look

That's a pretty good prive for a solid receiver. I believe it's the equivalent to the V773 without the wireless attachment

You are correct. The attachment can be purchased for this one.

Thanks for all the help. After looking at the options y'all gave, I went ahead and jumped on the HTR-7065. Now to pair a set of outdoor speakers, and I'll be all set.
