I currently have a Sony DA 555ES and unfortunatley it doesn't have all of the new bells and whistles. I am really facinated by the outlaw 950 but it doesn't have a built in amp. My wife hates it when I spend too much money at the same time. So basically my question is can you hook up a pre/pro to a receiver and have the pre/pro do the decoding but use the receiver's amps? I know that I can hook up another amp and use that but since a 7 channel amp would cost me an arm and a leg, I would rather get the pre/pro now and the amp later. Thanks for the help. Mike p.s. Is it possible to hook up the ISBM to my current receiver?
