    Here's my issue.
    I have a Denon AVC-A1SE in my main HT which has Multi-Zone capability.

    I've run a long stereo phono lead to my back room and have an old HT amp (Denon AVR3200) driving the speakers in there.

    I also have a set of outdoor speakers for the back garden which are driven from the same signal by an even older Pioneer integrated Hi-Fi amp.

    I'm looking to minimise the amount of space that is taken up with this setup (two large boxes with loads of different inputs and AV processing are not necessary to drive 2 seperate stereo pairs!)

    So I'm looking for a small living room friendly power amp with a volume control which could take the Phono input and drive a pair of speakers. It doesn't need to be particularly powerful (~50W/channel).

    I could then use two of them, one for the back room and the other for the garden. Or alternatively a 4 channel amp would do as long as I could independantly control the volume to both stereo pairs.

    I've been searching but all I can find are ridiculously expensive, bulky and powerful power amps, or amps built into AV kit which I don't need.

    Anyone got any suggestions as to other options?

    Thanks,

    Mark.

    something like an old Rotel rb966 will do the job.
    6x60watts, with 3 front panel attenuators (1 per pair of channels)
    Somewhere between 3 and 400 quid i would of thought.
