    I would like to upgrade into components. Right now I have a Onkyo DS-494. I will be upgrading in baby steps, that is if I can use my Onkyo during the steps. I use my system for 80% HT and 20% music. If I can add a amp to my Onkyo I think I would start of with a 2 channel amp for the fronts and then add a 3 channel for the center and rears later. If anyone has done the same please let me know. Or if you have any ideas, I would like to here them. My speakers are B&W in-walls, ceiling, center channel and a DCM sub.

    You are looking for l/r "pre-out" for the fronts. Some units have pre-outs for all 5 channels, some only for the front 2 channels, and some don't have pre-outs at all.

    I am not familiar with your unit.
