    I am currently upgrading my system to incorporate rear centers. Due to available funds I intend to use a less expensive pre-out for the time being until i can afford to Pre-out I really want.
    The problem is that this receiver only has line outs for 1 rear center speaker. I am getting two rear centers maited with two mono-block to power them.
    Since rear center signals are a matrixed surround, can I use a signal splitter to split that single line out into two lines then connect those lines to both my rears?
    Thanks

    Yes, a Y-adaptor can be used to split the signal.
