Rank amateur here, and I hope I'm posting in the appropriate forum...
I am having my basement room renovated and taking the opportunity to pre-wire for a sound system.
Based on the layout and size of the basement, I've decided to go with 4 in-ceiling speakers, which will be used for ambient music (i.e. not for theater surround).
I'm thinking that I'd like to have a receiver to power those 4 speakers and (if possible) a second zone. I'd also like to be able to get Pandora, AppleTV, Sirius XM, etc. and a BluRay player
So I'd need a receiver with at least 4 HDMI input/passthroughs.
I'm looking at the Yamaha RX-V675 (or 673), and wondering is this overkill for my application? If so, can you recommend something?
