how many of u use a surround sound receiver using the pre-outs for a larger power amp for the left and right channels? i recently went to this setup using an integra dt40.3 surround receiver with a prima luna power amp for the L/R channels (summits)! surprisingly it sounds pretty good and now i’m able to play my multi channel sacd’s and use the surround feature for my movies and music. So to speak i’m using just the preamp section and all its features! before this i was using a hi-end line stage and using the integra for the center and surrounds.
