You can give it to me! I will provide a kind home where it will be petted and given warm milk everyday.
Transport: Sony UBP-X700 UHD-Blu ray player spdif PC using Musiland Digital Times WASAPI via BNC connection - DAC: DC-1->XLR XPA-1 , RCA->Basx A-100 CD: Denon DCD 600 PCM 61 DAC. RCA Amp: XPA-1 gen 2 using XLR connections. Speakers: Axiom Audio m80 V3, Sennheisser HD700 headphones. two pairs 12 guage each bi-wire speaker cables per monoblock Headphone amp: Basx A-100 (INCREDIBLE VALUE!!)
For a secondary audio-only zone, I would sell the Onkyo and use the funds to pick up a B-stock UPA-200 + whatever source you're into (if you like AirPlay and want to minimize the budget, you could do an AirPort Express + some passive attenuators to act as a source). B-stock UPA-200's are RIDICULOUSLY cheap – cheaper than most people's HT interconnects I bet.
I have an Onkyo AVR in my garage which I use in stereo for radio (inbuilt), CD's (via on old DVD player) and the seldom used third zone connection from my UMC-200. When I update the Apple TV I'll use the current one for streaming and do away with the DVD player and third zone connection.
I also have a Denon AVR which I use for the second zone in the family room plus on the verandah where it sounds great in the semi-outdoors using "All Stereo" mode with 4 speakers.
