    Default Which receivers have proper pre-amp output voltage?

    I'm shopping for a new receiver and since it will be used as a pre/pro for my LPA-1 in my main listening room, I wanted to make sure that the pre-amp out voltage is sufficient as to not distort/compress at higher volumes or destroy the speakers. I'm currently looking at the following units:

    Onkyo TX-SR705
    Onkyo RX-SR805
    Sony STR-DA3300ES
    Sony STR-DA4300ES
    H/K AVR-354

    Does one brand or model have higher output voltage capabilities and what is considered proper voltage? Is there any way to tell or am I going to have to take my VOM with me to the store? It doesn't seem to be a spec that is given by any of the manufacturers.
    Mains: Polk LSi15
    Pre/Pro: Yamaha RX-V663
    Amplifier: Emotiva LPA-1
    Subwoofer: KLH ASW8-120b

    Your LPA-1 has a gain of 29db, so a pre w/ 1 volt output should drive it fine. Usually you can find that spec in the manuals- those sony's have 2v outputs.

    I had an HK AVR-235 that worked very good. Also the Onkyo 805 is very popular around here. Good deals can be found on both models.
    Happy hunting
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.

    I had a good experience with using HK as a pre/pro also.
