    Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever seen a reciever with pre-inputs or send/returns? I think it would be pretty sweet if you could patch in some effects processors like EQs after the decoding and before the amplification stage.

    Onkyo 989 has them for the main channels.

    My old pro-logic/THX Onkyo 919 had them for all five channels.

    I am sure there are others.

    Pre outputs for some or all channels are pretty common. However main inputs are less so, especially for all five channels. More common is main ins for the L/R and/or center channel.

    Generaly with AV-Receivers, Preouts ONLY for all channels is pretty common in the mid to upper level AVR's of a brands line.

    But ~{Pre-Out Main-In, or Loop-threw}~ on "all channels is much rarer"!
    Usually just the top line receivers of most brands have them. And even then, all the brands top receivers don't always provide Loop threw for all the channels Pre-outs.

    Loop threw is definetely a nice/extra feature that allows for goodies of some sort one can add in line prior to amping, or other things one can do with a AVR that has them.

    Regards
