First of all here's my equipment: Harman Kardon AVR 85 - 5.1 channel JBL SCS Series surround speakers + subwoofer Denon 900 DVD JBL LXE990 floorstanders(10") Mits 65" I'm keeping the receiver for now to control all my video/audio sources. The receiver has a multi-room feature which needs an outboard amp to power it. I already wired the area for the multi-room feature. Now I'm planning to purchase the Sherbourn(7)channel amplifier which I'm going to hookup the fronts L & R speakers, center by way of pre-outs at the back of the receiver and leave the rears the way it is. I'm left with 4 channels free from the Sherbourn amp which I'm planning to use for the multi-room. The amp is 200 watt/channel which leaves me no choice but to use it. Is 200 watt safe to use for exterior speakers? The speakers would probably be a 60 watter. Should I just purchase a separate amplifier fit for the exterior speakers? Reason being for the Sherbourn is that I have an extra floorstander with which either I'm planning to keep or purchase a better one and purchase a tube preamp solely for music. Thanks for any help out there.
