    Gene,

    Yes you can use your receiver as a pre amp as long as it has pre amp outputs. What's your price range for a amp? Do you want a two, five, or seven channel amp?

    Gene,

    What model JVC do you have? When I went amp shopping I liked the Parasounds Rotels and ATI. Each company has 100x5wpc models. In the $1000.00 range.

    Gene,

    Yep the 884 doens't have pre outs. So you won't be able to use it as a pre amp. Sorry.

    what about all this stuff on ebay is it a gamble? i looked up the rotel about 1200.do preamps run about the same? do get more with a pre amp,than useing a receiver for one? might find a receiver laying around.

    I'm currently waiting for Rotel and a few others to come out with their new pre/pros. Right now I use my Denon AVR-3300 receiver as a pre/pro to my Rotel RMB-1095 amp. The sound is great. True pre/pros are supposed are supposed to have better sound than receivers(no noisy amps in true pre/pros). Right now all the current pre/pros don't have the latest surround formats that the receivers have(6.1,7.1 DPLII). Well some of the newest ones do but they cost around $3000.00 - $4000.00. I've always been a little leary about ebay, but that's just me. Some peaople love it.
