Hi, new to the forum, hoping I can get a question answered.  I have picked up a nice used HK AVR 230 6.1.  On the back, I have a section of outputs called "pre amp" outputs, with one set of outputs for each surround channel.  I am a little confused by the name - does it mean this is a signal that can be sent to a seperate pre-amp, or is it a pre-amplified signal that can be sent direct to a power amplifier, with the volume controlled by the HK ?

It's a low-level (not amplified) signal sent to an amplifier. Much like any audio signal between, say, a cd player and a receiver using audio cables. When connected to an amplifier the H/K will control the volume.

"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.
