I'm testing Party Mode on the RX-A2040. When enabled, it duplicates the main zone audio to zone 2 (the main zone audio is a stereo track in this example). This also causes the main zone to switch...

I haven't noticed any problems -- but I rarely watch sports. I suspect that poor encoding quality/low bitrate of the video is contributing to what you're seeing.

The "CK-20" looks to be a Dual 1219 turnable in a CK-20 plinth. That's a pretty nice piece, at a reasonable price.

You can try the various Dolby Prologic IIx and DTS Neo:X modes. You may prefer one over the others.

You can't measure a speaker's impedance with a DMM. You're measuring DC resistance, not impedance. Still, the DC resistance is usually a few ohms at most. Are the speakers working?

The Lepai is an interesting option. But there's a reason that it's so cheap -- low build quality and low power (the 15W power rating is over-stated). Also, I believe the USB input is limited to...
