Purchased a pair of Klipsch KHO-7 Speakers for my outdoor patio and want to hook it up to my family room's Yamaha TSR-7850 receiver. I currently have a 5.1 setup in my family room with no intention of upgrading to 7.1 so I figured i might try and save some cash and not have to purchase a separate receiver for my outdoor speakers. My question is would i be able to use the outdoor speakers to play bluetooth audio from my phone on zone 2 while the tv is being utilized in zone 1 inside my family room? most importantly how user friendly is it? I can deal with a ton of inconvenience when it comes to tech but my wife and other regulars that come to my house have no tolerance for it. I would like it to be as simple as having a phone connect via bluetooth to the speakers and play music, like i do for my current setup, a small portable bluetooth speaker. Should i just get another 2.0 / 2.1 receiver dedicated to outside?

Thanks!

I'd just get a small 2 channel digital amp with Bluetooth built in. Could take it a step further and get an Echo Input or chromecast + hdmi audio extractor and have it via wifi so you're not tied to your phone staying in BT range.

For some God awful reason, Amazon and Google simply don't want you to use your own good quality audio setups with their products and just EOL everything designed to work that way. It's a shame, but that's another rant.


You could get something like this complete like this:

Or this:

Or you can go a little more DIY with something like this:

And use your own power supply.

You can leave them on as they draw very little power when not in use.
