    Hello all! So Summer is nearly here and my Dad wants music in his backyard. He has a normal Denon 5.1 setup (AVR-S900W) for his home theater that he would like to take it from. Would like to take music from a few sources: Plex Windows 10 that is plugged into the Denon via HDMI Airplay...

    My Yamaha RX-A3020 went mute on me, and now I'm looking for a replacement. I'm having a hard time tracking down an AVR that can send the ARC input to the Main Zone with full decode and simultaneously output the same sound down-sampled to stereo to Zone2 pre-out. My local HiFi store sells the...

    Hey all - Just recently put some holes in the wall and moved my front wall heights to the ceiling and went true 5.1.4. I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Overheads are awesome. I'm using a Pioneer LX503. Nvidia Shield is my hub for all things. I should mention that since I am putting holes...

    Bought an Integra DRX-4 AVR and want to selectively send my HDMI sources to zone 2. Per the online specs for this AVR on the Integra website, it says it can use the HDMI sources in HDMI inputs 1-3 on Zone 2. Which I read to mean I don’t need to also run RCA cables from these components to the...

    I'm facing an issue that compounds my lack of clear, concise knowledge with hesitation to overspend on unnecessary tech (which, if you ask my family, has never been a problem before...). The short of it is this: 1. I have a gaming PC that I also use as an HTPC in my den/media room. All cabling...

    TL;DR version: I tried hooking up the RZ710's pre-out via RCA cables to the CD in of a TX-SR602, but it doesn't seem like I'm getting any signal to the SR602. Does the RZ710's zone 2 pre-out get turned off if it's set up with powered zone 2? is there any way to have power to the zone 2...
