Zone 2 outdoor speakers

I just ordered a Yamaha TSR-7850 7.2-Channel Network AV Receiver from costco. It has a zone 2. I am tented to order a pair of Klipsch AW-650 for outdoor use connected to zone 2. Will this setup work?

I use the AW-650's on our porch and they are great outdoor speakers. Mount them high or try and get the woofer portion close to a boundary (wall or ceiling) to get a little boost in the low end if you can. Regardless, they sound great.

Those are what I have! I couldn't believe how big they were when they arrived!!

I don't care, but I wasn't expecting the size.

They do sound really good too! I now don't have to listen to my neighbor playing Jimmy Buffet non-stop. That has been going on for 4 years now.
If I am outside and don't like what he is playing, I put on some My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Skinny Puppy, or Front 242. My back yard gets rocking and his computer speakers cannot keep up!

Vinyl, tape, digital... I don't care as long as I can listen to my music...

Does the Zone 2 accept digital inputs because my Yamaha AVR will only output analog sources to Zone 2 speakers?
