My set up is currently only running 5.1 and has no problems. The layout of my living room makes it difficult to use all 7 speakers. If you choose this system and hook in the Audessy michrophone, it will realize only 5.1 are connected.

Yes, it comes with everything you see in the picture on the product page. Which includes 4 satellites, 2 front, 1 center, a powered subwoofer and the receiver. If you do plan on purchasing this I would recommend some better speaker wire, the kit only comes with 24 gauge.

This model does not have a powered zone 2. Look at the 7400 or higher system for that added functionality. Not sure if they provide for a separate source for the second zone or not, so research carefully prior to your purchase...best of luck on what ever system you purchase.
