    I am using an old Denon AVR3200 for HT. Instead of upgrading to a new AV receiver, I decide to get an intergrated tube amp (Melody SP-3) mainly for music. I am thinking to connect it to the pre-out outlet of the Denon to share the front speakers, even for HT (I am not going to get another pair of front speakers). I don't know if it is OK to use the tube amp for HT. Please comment! Thanks!

    It should work, you may not get full output, as often times an amp can sort of be a different standard than what an HT AVR puts out as far as level goes on it's pre-outs.

    I have done that and both amps are working fine. I just need to burn-in the tube amp. I have much better sound quality already for musical sound.

    Well tube amps soft clip so it shouldn't be to big a problem. Welcome to world of tubes!
