The next to no cheap AVRs with pre-outs. Adding pre-outs adds to the total cost of an AVR.
For instants, HK's last 9 AVRs only the 3600 has pre-outs. And it was the top of the 1600, 2600, 3600 series.
I've seen some Marantz AVRs that only has pre-outs for the main L/R. I think the same for Denon.
The cheapest Yamaha to have pre-outs is the A810 @ $590, from what I saw.
The catch 22 of pre-outs is the cheaper units with the smaller amps are exactly the ones that would benefit from having pre-outs, but don't.
Custom, one of a kind pair, MJC212 mains, mod PT800 center, PT800 surrounds, SUB1500s. Parasound P7, Citation 19, Parasound HCA2205A, HK AVR3600, Marantz TT, Denon disc player, MacBook Pro w/ DragonFly usbDAC.
