    Ok, I think I know what the problem is but I want to make sure before I do anything.
    My receiver is a Yamaha RX-V1000. I am running the EX surround channel output to my old Sony receiver. (I use 2 speakers for the EX channel). Then I have the speaker wire going out from the Sony to the speakers. I have tried numerous speakers so the speakers are not the problem.
    When I match the volume to the other speakers, there is a very annoying hiss coming from both EX speakers. It is very loud and distracting.
    Is this caused by Sony Receiver? Should I buy a true amp for it?
    Please let me know and thanks.

    I had an old DPL Sony (STR-DE515) once, that exhibited "Hiss", so another Amp (S/N rating @ least -70dB or higher) would be a better choice.
