Well, I pass my Oppo player output through my CX-A5000 so that I can view the various onscreen displays and menus from the preamp. I find these to be pretty valuable to me and well worth routing through the preamp to get (I have video processing in the CX-A5000 turned off).
Also, another feature I'd lose is when I'm streaming music through the Oppo and don't want to use my projector (almost always), I still have to have a display to make selections and that (an LCD PC monitor) is connected to the CX-A5000 as well.
