Intelligent Amp Assign
Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on which speaker layout is selected. For example, in a 7.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is turned off, all 7.1 channels will be used in the Main Zone; however, when Zone 2 is powered on, the power to the two surround back channels will automatically be redirected to the two speakers in Zone 2, and the Main Zone will receive 5.1 channels of power. With Intelligent Amp Assign, there's no need to switch the speaker cables on the back of the receiver.
