As I move to upgrading back to a seperate (almost) music and HT system, I am looking at 5/6 channel amps which have BOTH balanced and single ended (RCA) inputs. Most notably are the Anthem MCA-5 and the Cinepro 3K6. Here is the question I have... Are both the balanced and the single ended inputs available all the time, or do you actually have to select via a switch which inputs you want to use??? Here is why I ask. I want to use the amp's front left and front right balanced inputs for my music only system. And, then at another time(one input in use at a time) use the 5, or 6, RCA type inputs to use the amp for my HT system. The front L and R speakers would be the same for both systems so the amp's output would run to the same speakers. Even if this is feasable, would having two input connections for the front L and R speaker cause any problems? Thanks! ------------------ Take Care, merc ---------------- God Bless America!!!
