Still getting my 3050 dialed in and trying to get the most out of it.
Looking to use each zone without an external amp right now...if possible.
I would like to do 5.1.2, stereo zone 2 and 3 and HDMI with audio straight to TV in zone 4
Thought I had this figured out, but for 5.1.2 it shows to use the front presence speakers which shares with zone2/3 speakers.
Does it make things easier going to external amps if i plan to keep doing the zone 2/3 and move to 5.1.4 in the future? What am I looking to spend on cheap stereo amps if I go that route?
This is new territory for me right now and I'm not sure if its worth it as I have a 4 zone control4 maxtrix amp I could upgrade to 8 if this causes too much frustration.
