It has connections for 5 speakers and pre-outs for 7 speakers and a sub. To hook up the 2 extra speakers you need another amplifier.

The three inputs on the left are the front left/right and centre. The 2 on the right are for the surround channels or a sub (It is impossible to read).

No, you will only need an external amp for the surround back channels in a 7.1 set-up.

The specs indicate nothing about a sub hook-up so you must be reading the panel wrong. Sure it doesn't read Surr L/R? The sub should hook into the LFE Pre-out and the receiver will power 5 speakers.
