Can I use a 7.1 pre-amp with (5) Marantz ma-700's and a Harman Kardon Receiver that I already have to power the other 2 speakers. Or, am I better off just getting a new reciever with 7.1 outputs with the ma-700's and forgeting the preamp. Any thoughts?

I suppose you could but a newer pre-amp (a good, used one) or a new receiver with pre-outs, might have features that would make it a better option. What's your present pre-amp and H/K?
"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.

It would help to know your goal here...and your sources.
