    If I were to hook up an external amp for my 2 fronts... How would I go about doing this on my Harman Kardon AVR130? I see no pre-outs besides the one for my sub. I hope this is possible because it does not give out enough power for the speakers I plan on using..

    Tyler, the 130 does not have pre-outs. You have to step up the the 230 to get pre-outs.

    wow, now I am angry. Now I am seriously considering just going to stereo. I get super good deals on HK, like AVR130's shipped for $222 (work at ccity). I may just get their top of the line stereo reciever which puts out 140x2 compared to 45x5. But then I am moving to England and everything needs to be packed within a month. So I would have to order the Lsi9's liek right now and wow this blows. I will go ramble elsewhere

    thank you

    Tyler, couldn't you exchange the 130 for the 230? The difference in price on Circuit City's web site is only $100.00, and will give you the pre-outs you desire.
