I don't see a powered second zone in this review. There is no clear answer out there on the web. Does anyone know if this has a powered second zone, allowing different sources to go elsewhere with volume control? I hope so... it has everything else I want! If not, is there a another Sony that does?Thanks.

I am considering buying this receiver to power my bookshelf speakers, which can handle up to 125 watts into 8 ohms. I do not know what is the rating of this into 8 ohms, but I guess it would be too much power for them.
Biamping definitively out of the question.

I am attempting to attach my wii through component to the GAME input. How do I assign the wii audio inputs? I haven't found how to assign audio inputs to match with the component inputs. Only 2 of the Inputs appear to have audio selections that are assignable.

While there is not a second-zone speaker output option per se, there is a "B speaker" option that allows connection of an alternate pair of front left and right speakers. That would still leave the problem of how to control that set of speaker outputs from outside the main zone. But you could certainly start music running on the B speakers and then go to the second zone to listen.
