    Okay, have been reading about people starting with a receiver with pre-amp outs, and having the ability to add on power amps later. My question is regarding the pre-amp outputs of a receiver. Does that mean the receiver acts AS a pre-amplifier, and the pre-amp outputs are designed to go right to a power amp, or are pre-amp outputs designed to go into a separate pre-amp, and then to a power amp?

    They actually would work both ways, but most people who have a receiver in their system just use the pre-outs directly to the inputs on an amplifier. No separate pre-amp is required when using a receiver with pre-outs.
