    Would adding a 5 channel power amp improve the sound of a reciver? The reason I ask is that I am considering purchasing a receiver with lots of features and then add a power amp to improve the sound quality. What I have found is that there are many receivers out there packed with features but don't sound as good as the more expensive models which don't necessarily have all the features. I am looking for the best of both worlds and perhaps similar cost.

    Thanks Wayne. What a great thread! I am sold! I think I will purchase a Rotel RMB-1075 and see how I go.

    A second point is how much influence does the pre/pro have? I am wondering if I upgraded to a better receiver would I be able to improve the sound again or would I simply be getting better features and only marginal sound improvement?
