At the same time, we had six other zones playing music from two different streaming services. It all worked smoothly and was easy to control with the HEOS app. We were even able to control our wired zone 2 outdoor speakers alongside our wireless zones of HEOS gear with the HEOS app. That's a feature we were excited to try out. It was easy to group zone 2 with our HEOS speakers to play the same song everywhere, or control them independently. We had some trainees from our Sales and Tech Support departments come check out the demo. Everyone was impressed with how well the receiver worked as part of the HEOS ecosystem and how easy it was to control volume on the individual HEOS speakers. Even with different speakers grouped together in the app, you could control the volume on each one individually. And the movie sounded outstanding in Dolby Atmos! The AVR-X6300H allows for all kinds of setups. Connect up to three wired audio zones and add as many wireless HEOS devices as your Wi-Fi can handle. If you have a connected audio component, like a CD player or turntable, you can use HEOS to distribute the sound through your home.
