Through a pleasent twist of fate, I have found myself in posession of a nice Onkyo DPL receiver. I have hooked it up to my Pioneer Elite 24tx and have a question. I have run stereo cables from the surround l&r preouts to the stereo inputs on the Onkyo. I have a center channel speaker hooked to the center channel outs on the Onkyo. My question is as follows: Is it possible to still get the "proper" center surround activity (with the Onkyo in DPL mode) if I only hook the center surround speaker to the DPL receiver and continue to use the amps in the Elite to drive the L&R surround speakers? The reason why I ask is that the amps in the Pioneer are cleaner and I want to minimize any extra noise coming from the rear. Not sure if this makes sense, but any help would be appreciated (I did a search and really did not find anything that helped with my specific problem). One other thing. Does anyone have a good suggestion on how to set the center channel level to correspond with the calibration of the other 5 speakers?
