without explaining our rather complicated AV set up in our basement/rec room it all boils down to this
I would really like to do 5.1 in one room, and also drive 4 speakers in the room next door. The walls are open so I can easily run all the wires I need.
really my only requirement here is that I be able to turn of the b speakers in the other room.
my dilemma is that I have been looking at the new pioneer 1021, seems to meet all of my criteria EXCEPT that it only has two B set speakers.
I have been looking and looking and can't locate any receiver that offers 5.1 in one room and the ability to drive 4 B set speakers in another room.
I'd rather not get a second receiver for the other room, I'd have to split audio from all of the components etc. etc. but I don't know if there is any other way to do it with just one receiver.
suggestions on which products would do what I want, as well as input on jsut using two seperate receivers is both very welcome.
thanks in advance!
