    I have been told that in order to use zone 2 i would need to have 2 speakers as the speakers work in pairs. Trouble is that I have only have 1 run of speaker wire to the kitchen (wasnt really fussed about having stereo in the kitchen just wanted an output) and now its too late to install another cable for another speaker in zone 2!! oops:

    i'm going to be using 6.1 setup with kef in ceiling speakers (Ci160.2QR) for the 3 rears and the kitchen

    is there any way to setup the amplifier (currently planning on using Onkyo TX-SR674E) so that only one speaker can be used in zone 2??

    If the balance control or speaker level adjustment works for zone 2 you could use that to effectively turn one channel off. I can't see a problem with that.
