Hello so I just ordered my equipment for my setup and I’m going for a 5.1.2 setup in the living room. I also have two patio speakers that I’m going to be adding. I just purchased the denon x2700h and it has 7 channels. What would be the best way to do this setup? Should I use a speaker switcher? Or maybe an external 2 channel amp hooked up to the denon? Or should I have bought the 3700 denon?

Seriously, I have no life.
I would go for the 3700 because it has the better Audyssey XT32, ability to separately setup two subs, a full set of pre-outs, larger power supply and more channels....but if you use the 2700 I think you're best off with an external amp on the zone 2 preouts.

Okay after reading what you wrote I ordered the 3700 and am going to return the 2700. It makes the most sense, especially considering it’s only a few hundred dollars more. Thanks for the reply
