    Ive been debating the idea for a while, I currently run a Yamaha RX-V620 receiver, which isn't that bad of a unit for me, but a little underpowered for what I run off of it. Ive been contemplating getting an external amp to drive my mains, but my receiver doesnt have preouts.....or should I say didnt.
    I finally got around to some serious cutting, and soldering, and now have preouts for the 5 channels. Now there's nothing holding me back from getting a decent amp!.
    There's a strange sensation, taking a dremel to an expensive piece of machinery like that [​IMG] .

    Hey Rob,

    Sounds all good - fill us in on the details!

    Did you need to buffer the output signal, or did you bother adding output caps/resistors?

    No, actually, I took the signals as they were travelling from the preamp to the internal amp. They were normalized preout levels fortunately. I didn't biffer them, although that may be a good idea for later, and provide a bit of protection to my receiver.
