It's a straight Amp, not bi, you perv.

There's no reference to Bi-Amp capability in the manual so I suspect it is not possible.

This is basically the cheapest entry level avr. If you do like 10 minutes of research you'll probably find that you'll want to upgrade fairly quickly if you actually get into home theater. If you're someone who just wants to power the speakers you have so you don't have to deal with TV speakers then this will be just fine. I would recommend trying to find an older higher tier used model at a thrift store/Craigslist etc if possible.
Thank God AVRs are finally going back on sale below MSRP
I have this. Zero issues and it gets uncomfortably loud if I crank it, . Does freak out with pc inputs so those I have on the tv. Also Firestick 4k remote and Samsung remote both control volume on tv. Def great buy

Is it just one zone? Probably at this price but thought I'd ask since I couldn't find it.

It kept switching inputs when the pc was connected and wouldn't Stay on 4k60 . I connected pc to my tv then tv to receiver. And works fine now.

Look at the photos. The second one shows they back side. There doesn't appear to be an output for a second zone.

But TVs only support Dolby passthrough. Cheap bastards don't want to pay DTS for licensing.

Earc is also for uncompressed audio. I don't use the receiver for video usually but uncompressed audio is a min now. True DTS lost the home entertainment game.
