Greetings; For the past several weeks I have been hemming and hawing back and forth among many budget AV receivers, including Yamaha HTR-5560, Panasonic SA-HE200, Pioneer D-811s, Onkyo TSR-600, and now the Kenwood VR-6060 and 6070. One of the differences that I am personally getting hung up on is that some have full/limited preouts, whereas others only have the subwoofer pre-out. I realize this limits future expandability, and at some level that does concern me. However, given my newness to HT (for gosh sake's my current Pioneer receiver is 20 years old!), I am wondering how "real" my concern is. I plan to use this receiver as a main A/V receiver in a 15*20 family room, with possibly a "b" set of speakers in the living room. I've read that the power output of each should be enough to fill the room. I will be powering a set of JBL N24s and N26s with Audiosource SW15 subwoofer (N center). Don't have any real plans to integrate the house to one command receiver or anything fancy. My question to the masses is how many of you do make use of the pre-outs (other than Subwoofer)? I realize I may need a pre-out for the 6 & 7 channels for EX and THX, but other than that, are pre-outs a feature that goes uncommonly used? Thanks for your help.
