If you use up all 7 amps for main zone (standard 5.1 plus 2 extra speakers, whether Front B, surround back, etc.) then any additional channels (other zones) require additional amplifier channels to be added externally.
Please forgive me, for some reason I can't wrap my head around this. I just can't process it.
If there are 7 amps as you said, I only need 6. I don't want 5.1 surround, I want 2 pairs of mains and one pair elsewhere.
My thinking is that since i'm not doing 5.1 I have those extra channels for the extra fronts that I want.
