AVM 40: $3699
AVM 50: $4699

= $1K difference, and the AVM 40 was short-lived because hardly anyone bought it. Eight years later, the AVM 60 has a video processor but since the chip can't upscale...

For that many 4-ohm speakers, outboard amplification is recommended. You might want to consider AVM 60 + PVA series amps.

I don't see an issue. MCA 325 handles 2 ohms and PVA 8 is fine with 4 ohms.

The trigger-out supplies up to 40 mA of current so if the trigger inputs on the amps need a total of no more than this at 12 volts, you can probably use any ordinary 3.5mm splitter. The question now...

Same dimensions, same kit across MRX x10, MRX x20, and AVM 60. The new MCA amps (225/325/525) have the same faceplate shape and dimensions as the above but use a different kit.
