I am buying a vacuum valve preamp (little dot II) and I am planing to connect it to integrated receiver ( I am checking which brand/model to get) my view is to have a good integrated receiver to watch movies as HT and in other hand to use it as a power amp to the vacuum valve amplifier. From my search online. I noticed that the best way to do so, is to find a way to bypass the preamp in the integrated receiver. Is it possible to do so by connecting the vacuum valve amp to multi channel input ( I found marantz 7009 has input called 7.1 channel)
Last: if that possible, do you have any recommendations for the integrated receiver ?

Thank you so much
