    Hi,
    I'm considering buying the Denon AVR-3300. But after reading the spec see you can only run one set of main speakers(front). Unfortunately i need to run two sets of front speakers (A + B for music, two diffrent rooms).
    Anyone had this problem or got advice?

    Does it have a "Zone B" facility? Then you could use a (stereo) power amp to drive speakers B.
    If speakers A and B are of the same type and have an impedance of at least 8 Ohm you could wire in parallel, but else it's a big no-no and you may need to choose another amp.

    the 3300 has been superceded by the 3801, so you may want to consider that instead. the 3300 does not have speakers B for the fronts and has opted for two sets of rears instead but this is not satisfactory for running speakers in another room. However, the 3300 has a multisource multiroom facility which is better than 2 speaker outs for the fronts beacause it allows you to listen to one source in one room and another in the other room. The catch is you need a second amp to do this. If you don't have an old stereo amp for this, you can still opt for a QED speaker box that will allow you to switch between two sets of speakers; about 20 pounds.
