I am setting up an outdoor speaker system for a relative. I am very confused over what kind of receiver I need. This is just for music, not movies or surround sound or anything of the sort. Now I've looked up stereo receivers and on the back where the speakers would plug in, there are categories like left, right, center, surround, etc... I am using six speakers four yamahas:

and two: http://www.amazon.com/Acoustic-Audio-Outdoor-Waterproof-RS6GG-Pr/dp/B00CY14TZA/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1399843285&sr=1-3&keywords=outdoor+rock+speakers

 

Would I need to pay any mind to the fact that the receiver is supposed to be used for a surround setup? Can I just plug the speakers into any channel and use it to play music from the receiver? I researched receivers and I am between an Onkyo:

I am still pretty new to all this to excuse any blatant ignorance. Thanks for the advice.
