I have a Sony STR-DA5ES receiver and just bought a pair of JBL N 24 All weather speakers to install on my deck / patio. The AVR has a 2nd room and 3rd room option. The manual page to explain how to install this is linked here:
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/STRDA5ES.PDF - It is explained on pages 18 and 29
I am a little confused as to whether or not I need a seperate amplifier / receiver to run the patio speakers or if I can just hook the speakers into the Sony and use the 2nd room function. Sorry if this seems obvious, but am not well versed in this type of thing. As Always, thanks very much for the responses.
