I'm about to buy an old Yamaha RX-596 speakers I have but

Customer Question

I'm about to buy an old Yamaha RX-596 for some speakers I have but I'm confused and don't know too much about audio. On the manual it looks like you can connect 4 speakers, 2 on channel A and 2 on B. However, I read an amazon review where the person wrote: "Despite the current fad for multi-channel audio/video receivers, the majority of people still listen to music with two speakers and only need a two-channel stereo receiver to drive them. I'm one such person and -- as a fanatic audiophile -- this is the receiver I use."
JA: What's the exact make and model of your television? And what have you tried as far as getting this connected goes?
Customer: This isn't about a television
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: this is about whether or not I should buy this receiver
JA: The electronics expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

You can do either or both?so you can in effect connect just two speakers for stereo sound only?its a choice thing if you want to connect more you can or if you want to run a different format like 5.1 sound you can

Let me know if you need more help with this
