Yeah, Pico (autocorrect...)

Using the Insteon IR receiver isn't going to help. You're not going to get an easy bridge back to the RA2 system from there...

My other suggestion was to either...

There is a separate volume control (probably on the remote) for adjusting volume in Zone2. It will start at "0" so you'll have to raise it first to hear anything (with 5 pairs of speakers, you'll...

Yes, analog RCA inputs only. A laptop will have a 3.5mm audio jack, so you'll want to have the adapter cable handy, or let your DJ ahead of time

Hmmmm... Looks like the Zone2 output must be fixed as they expect you to connect it to another pre-amp. Odd and unfortunate.

There's not any easy answer given your current gear, then. Can you...

If the load wiring is not already all co-located, there's no advantage to the GE. Certainly simpler to use the dimmers and hybrid keypad, and while the GE would be cheaper if all 6 were in one...

Do you have the Onkyo set for "fixed" output? Change the pre-amp output to "variable" and then you'll use the Onkyo's main volume knob for everything. Use the trim controls on the amp to adjust...

Bluetooth has limits unless you get aptX support (don't know how likely that is currently in the types of gear you'd need). Airplay is a lossless protocol so is CD-quality. A DJ is highly unlikely...

The Emotiva amps are top-vented - you need at least 1U (I left 2U for mine, although they run quite cool) of vented air space above them. Same for the Denon AVR.

Do an RF gain / loss diagram and go from there.

Yikes! There's two on eBay for $210-200 (best offer?). Listed as NV-MP (but neither include the Mirage software license). Functionally identical to the NV-NNA (minus some LEDs).
