FAQ:

Q: What does multi zone mean in home theater receivers?

A: Multi-zone is a function that allows a home theater receiver to send a second, third, or fourth source signal to speakers or separate audio systems in different locations. This is not the same as connecting additional speakers and placing those speakers in another room, nor is it the same as wireless multi-room audio.

This adds more flexibility than just connecting additional speakers and placing them in another room, as with an A/B speaker switch.

Inputs may come from a satellite receiver, radio,…
