You should probably be looking at a multi-room audio system like the Nuvo since most AVRs won't have the amplification for the 3rd zone as mentioned above and since they're not really designed for more than 2 speakers in zones 2/3.

Search this forum for Nuvo and you'll find discussions of it and other multi-room systems.

You can have a dedicated AVR for the home theatre and multi-room for the rest of the house. This would allow for less expensive AVR and less expensive multi-room systems. Of course an AVR with multi-zones may be the correct option in this case - just trying to point out options. The issue with an AVR is often the problems associated with trying to run more than 2 speakers beyond the main zone due to impedance mismatches and the need for separate amplification anyway for the 3rd zone. You can always feed the AVR output signal(s) into the (small) multi-room system.
