Perhaps I should explain that in the lounge we'd like to have a flat screen tv on the wall and all other hardware in the hall cupboard, not worried at this stage about surround sound ect, but would like to have music playing in another room. I was recently told that all we need is an AV receiver, run an HDMI cable from tv to receiver and connect everything else, blu-ray, freeview ect to receiver, with a zone 2 for kitchen.
Could someone please clarify that for me? and advice on which Amp ect would be great, bearing in mind we're on a budget. Hope this all makes some sense!
