So, the use case is that you have rear surrounds that double as multi-room HEOS speakers?
I'm not sure I'm getting the major benefit except...

Why not got one model cheaper? I need the same stuff you listed, and I'm having a hard time justifying the 2200 over the 1200.
Doesn't the 1200 do everything you need?
