Yes. The manual is kind of vague. That is why there is an official thread with a detailed faq
at the beginning. Scroll down to post #3 section 12 for zone2 audio skills. And the person
that wrote it jdsmoothie is the ultimate expert for any complicated questions. I cover the basics.

That's brilliant - thank you. I will read through that thread. Looks like it covers this exact issue in better detail than the manual!

If you want the same source at 5.1 in main zone and 2.0 in zone2 it can be done, but both
zones need to be controlled separately. Hdmi a/v can be sent out through hdmi to other zones.
Multi zone stereo is a feature on all 7CH Denon and Marantz models to include all lower level models as well.

The Denon X3200W/Marantz SR6010 and higher models can pass PCM 2.0 over HDMI to Zone 2.

Talking Bump

This thread deserves a bump. Has there been any revelations since the last post?

The main concern for me is not extracting audio (if analog isn't available like the AppleTV Gen 4) as buying this device is relatively cheap.

However, finding an extractor that is HDCP 2.2 compliant, as to not interfere with the chain of compliant devices, is something not readily available.
