Receiver Pre-Outs to External Amp - Smart or Dumb?
Does anyone recommend using the receiver pre-outs, rather than the integrated amps on Denon 3805 or Yamaha 2500 receivers, to amplify a 5.1 set of PSB speakers? I have a pair of Carver Silver-7t mono blocks for the front mains, then a pair of Carver TFM-15CBs for the center (bridged) and the rears (R & L). The Carver amps are solid and smooth, so I do not want to sacrifice them. Before I purchase a US$1,000 receiver, I wanted your thoughts on using external amps vs. receiver amps.
