He doesn't HAVE to put the zone 2 speakers in a different room if he does not want to.
well, I caved and bought one tonite...........I listen to multichannel SACD quite a bit. My older Pio Elite VSX-01TXH sounded great but I got the Denon 3312 for a good price and liked the features and GUI quite a bit better. However, the sound, while very good, was quite a bit different than what I was used to hearing. What I am hoping for is to return to the sound signature I loved, plus the fact that tweaking MCACC after calibration is a huge plus. So I'll be giving it a go this week. I hope it blows the socks off the Denon. If not, it will be going back.
I am not sure it will function the way I need with zones but I'll try to figure out what works for sure. My older Pio vsx-919 was quite limited with zones.
The 3312 is very impressive with the way it handles 2 sets of mains.
