Multi-Receiver Surround Sound--how to do?
My new house-like condo is finally ready. I had the builder run speakers through out the unit to even include the master bedroom suite bathroom. Eight sets of speakers in total. Have them all connected to a selector box which I plan to connect to my receiver (Onkyo Home Theater Receiver (TX-SR603X) but I find that by using the "second room" option on the receiver the surround sound system is reduced to 5.1 instead of 7.1. I read that if I add a second receiver I will be able to use the 7 channels. Is this true and how do I connect the two receivers together? My plan is to play the same music in all rooms (mostly when I entertain) so I'm not concerned about different media types in the different rooms. Will this set up work? Are there other things that I need to consider? Thanks
