Zone with Digital Source


Active Member
I have an Onkyo TXNR905 AV Receiver. I had never used the Zone 2 facility until this week. I was very disappointed to find out that the zone speakers can only play sources that have an analogue input. This is useless for what I want to do, as all of my devices are connected via HDMI.

I have lost track of the latest AV receivers, so does anyone know of a decent one that will zone with HDMI input?

I beieve the Denon X3000 and X4000 will output HDMI inputs on zone 2. I also believe Yamaha have a party mode on some of theirs that allows the same HDMI source to be played in zone 1 and zone 2 at the same time but this may not give you the functionality you want.
