I need a way to use my 22-year-old amp for music control, and my brand-new-POS for surround-sound !
I have a 22 year old Kenwood KR-V8040 that is a superlative music driver. It has A&B speaker selectors that can be driven simultaneously and out-stretched 120W per amplifiers that don't even heat up when driving full speed. With my Onkyo 12-band EQ controlling the balance, it blows away my brand new $850 Yamaha by having very solid control over pure signal without all the "processing" screwing things up. WHAT IT DOESN'T HAVE IS SUBWOOFER OUTPUT or surround sound !
My new Yamaha has subwoofer outs (obviously), and surround sound. However, the digital processing of my music is distorting and cutting quality. While listening to music, you can shove 7 channels up your ass. What it takes is undiluted, unfucked-with signal, plenty of power, and a good 4 speakers plus your subs.
I want my Kenwood driving my music, meaning my front and rear speakers. I need the new POS Yamaha for subwoofer signal and surround sound while watching movies.
HOW TO DO THIS ?????????
