I have seen that more and more people are expecting the best for music and AV from their systems. The solution is to add a decent stereo amp to the AV amp/receiver. Less commonly, people need a stereo amp to add to their AV amp to drive speakers in another zone in order to get a basic multiroom multi source facility. This is easily done because the feature is increasingly available on AV amps. In addition if the stereo amp has outputs for speakers A and B, then the facility could extend to a third room. I've taken it a stage further and added a QED switch box with speakers in a fourth room. Of course I'm still restricted to just two sources at any one time, and I don't drive all the speakers at the same time. My thoughts are that it would be nice if one stereo amp could be used for both functions (stereo for CD in main room and to drive zone 2). These don't have to happen simultaneously, but would need the inputs to be assignable ie when CD is selected, main speakers are driven, when processor/AV selected then speakers B are driven. In order to have everything automated and on timers, eg with a pronto, the speaker selection should also be assigned via remote. Do any such stereo amps exist? Do any have remote speaker switching for more than 2 sets of speakers? Are there enough people out there that would value this so that the manufacturers could comply - it seems to me that it would not involve much additional cost to existing models.
