Ok maybe this is a strange question.
Does anyone run dual receivers, using the amps of both and preouts of one?
Here's my situation.
I have a yamaha RX-V1, which I love, I also have a Sony TA-N9000ES amp.
I currently use the yamaha as an amp, and as a preamp for the sony.
I am driving dual mains and dual center channels up front. I also drive a set of mains to the rear, B channel on the yamaha for music only.
I like this speaker arrangement and don't want to change it.
However the Sony and the Yamaha have different wattage ratings and I want all the speakers to receive the same wattage and signal characteristics.
I don't want to go the route of separate amps for all 11 (surrounds and rear center) speakers.
Also most amps don't have a B channel , so even if I used the yamaha as a preamp only, I would still need more than 1 additional amps.
I'm planning on getting a second, identical yamaha to replace the sony as this would also be the cheapest fix.
Is there anything I'm not seeing or taking into consideration, that I should be aware of?
