    I know that many people add amps to their existing receivers pre/outs as an avenue to upgrading or going to separates. But has anyone done this backwards and added a good preamp to their existing receivers pre/ins and used the multichannel amps in their receivers to power their speaker ensemble. Thoughts???

    Not many newer recievers allow this, aas long as you havve Pre-Ins could be possible with analog inputs or an upgradable reciever, used ammps are cheap

    Receiver amps are usually their weakest point. I suppose if you had an older flagship receiver and wanted to support some new format, then you might do this. I tend to think this is another arguement against flagship receivers.

    But format obsolescence will still rear its ugly head.

    Well decent amps don't date very quickly. Unfortunately, not many "upgradable" receivers are affordable or have had upgrades released [​IMG].
