Hi everyone. I'm a total audio noob about that's about to purchase my first receiver. My wife and I are finally ready for a surround sound system and I need some input as to which receiver would be best. I have Klipsch Quintet satellite speakers and a Klipsch Synergy 10" Sub and am looking at either a Denon AVR-1713 or an Onkyo TX-NR414 receiver. I want the 2nd zone capability so I can install a couple small speakers outside under my deck. Is there really a huge difference between the Onkyo and the Denon that would make me regret not spending the extra $200 if I was to purchase the Onkyo unit? Also, would I need a second amp to push the speakers that will be outside? If so, can you all recommend something to me? Remember these will just be small outdoor speakers, nothing fancy. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
