    Since I am using bookshelves for my mains, I'm not sure how to get my sub to kick in while I am listening to DVD-A 2 channel recordings. The 6 channel inputs totally bypass the bass redirection in my preamp and I have my sub hooked up using the sub input. Is there a way to make the sub kick in without using speaker wires and running the bookshelves through the sub?

    If your receiver/preamp has setting for the sub on 2-channel inputs, just run a left and right input to the control unit (e.g. to CD) from the player and use the 5.1 channel input when you listen to multichannel.

    It's not free, but the Outlaw Audio ICBM also solves your problem nicely.

    It's US$250 and requires additional interconnects though.
