I recently got the NR-828 receiver. I'm very happy with it since it's an upgrade for my old, old 2 channel system. I'm just now:cool: connecting it to a 4K tv and a few other items.

My question is this... I have a good HK Citation 24 amp that I want to continue to use. I got a small 5.1 speaker system but I want to use my old Dahlquest DQM-9 speakers for my front speakers. It seems only natural to use the pre-amp front to the Citation 24 amp. That will provide a very solid and dedicated 100wpc for the DQM-9's. I'm also assuming that it also frees up that power for the other channels. BTW, what is the power of the 828 with all channels driven 20-20k at 8 ohms?

Does this sound right? Any other options that might be better?

Thanks in advance,

I have this same amplifier. Using a dedicated amp for the fronts will free up more watts from the Integrated amp to power the remaining speakers.

i was wondering if anyone here having trouble with this TX-NR828 with the Tivo Roamio plus? Audio seems to drop randomly and it seems to be a problem with the NR828 and not the Tivo Roamio. There is no drops when the Tivo is connected straight to the TV. I can see the NR828 display screen complete go blip and seconds later the audio comes back up.

here is a video example:
