    I have a Yamaha 995 receiver that has an A and B set of speakers. I use this receiver as a pre-amp so everything is wired at the amp. If I were to select the 'B' on the front of the receiver and have speakers hooked up to the back of the receiver does this pose a a strain on the amp or the receiver? Does anyone else do this?

    Thanks for any input!

    I am not sure this will answer your question or not. I have a Yamaha 2092 Reciever and now using it as a pre-amp. I had to remove two U-shaped metal jumpers from the Pre-out on the back panel when I purchased a separte amp. I have B&K 7250 5-channel amp. I cannot run any more speaker off my amp. The metal jumpers apparently let you use the internal amp to power the speakers on "A + B". I tried to run a second set of speakers on my patio recently on "B" Speakers and got no sound. I had a old AM/FM reciver that I had to power the outdoor speakers.
