Default VSX-D812 A/V Receiver

I got this receiver for my 20th Birthday, which was two days ago. It is the Pioneer VSX-D812, we went down to DickSmith, and we picked it out of a whole set of receivers that were marked with 'special' prices. I'm not very picky, as it is it's replacing an old 30w stereo amplifier i've been using for the past 5 years which pops and clicks a lot.

I found a schematic of the back of this receiver, and noticed that it has two speaker modes, A and B. When set in B the receiver makes use of all the speakers (rear, center, front, etc) but when set in A only the front speakers are active (and subwoofer if set up). I'm wondering why there are two sets of front speaker connectors. Would I be able to use my home theatre configuration at one time, then switch to mode A and have my music-only speakers running? (I do have two pairs of fronts, one for theatre, one for music only).

Default Speaker Usage

Most Receivers are set up this way--however i've seen it the other way around. it's designed for a bypass listening. if you only want to listen in the old two speaker stereo mode.

I do not believe this is a defect in the system but the way it was deisgned by engineers that still use their tranister radios

Thanks for the reply. I've had the receiver now for nearly a year And so I've figured out what the different speaker modes do. But thanks none the less!
