I asked this once but when the server went down and we lost all of our threads, mine disappeared also. So, what I had asked was, can you by-pass the processor of a receiver and use the amps. I currently have a Sony STR-DA555ES and would love to get the new outlaw 950. Only, I don't think that I could convince the wife into the $1800 amp to go along with it. So, I would like to get the 950 and then use the amps in my sony. Can it be done?
