I am looking for and AV Receiver that can process hdmi audio sources and output a preamp signal to a separate amp to run a whole house speaker system.

I've seen receivers that only send preamp out when using stereo inputs. Are there amps that'll convert 5.1 signals to stereo and output all sources to preamp?

Thanks in advance!

That is pretty easy to satisfy but not at the lowest prices. Here's one: http://us.marantz.com/us/Products/Pa...oductId=SR5005

Sure, you can specify stereo output from any source but it will be the same at the main outputs as well.

Now, if you are looking for an independent zone or two, that is another story.
