    I am planning a home theater around my PC and have a question regarding the speaker setup. I will have a 4.1 PC speaker system in one room, as well as a 4.1 home theater speaker setup in an adjacent room. Is there a way to wire these both through a receiver so that I can output to the PC speakers by themselves, or the HT speakers by themselves, or both at the same time (like when I want to play music throughout the whole condo)?

    You can wire two speakers for each channel in parallel (impedance = 8 Ohm or greater) or in series (impedance = 4-6 Ohm), but you won't be able to switch group A or group B independently - most (but not all!) amps support this for one pair of speakers only.

    Maybe you can find some external switchbox for this purpose though, check out the hifi/electronic stores.
