Hey Everyone.

I'm looking for a 7.2 receiver with pre-outs.
I'll be hooking it up to pro audio speakers for large audiences. I have a 1' cable loom that goes from RCA to 1/4 (x8) that will go into an 8 channel DI Box to balance the signals. (will actually be running in 7.1)
I need HDMI in and out. But do not need any internal power amp.

I don't need anything fancy. Looking to spend as little as possible so I can get 2. (one as a backup)

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Alex Stobbe

You're looking for a prepro (preamp/processor) and won't find any at "bargain basement" prices. Go to Emotiva.com and look at the UMC200-only 7.1 so you will have to use a "wye" output cable to split the sub signal.

Hmmm... that looks like it would do the job nicely. However, I could go the route of a cheaper Onkyo with a power section and just not use the powered outs. Any advice an cheaper receivers that have 7.1 or 7.2 pre-outs? I don't need anything crazy high end. Just something I can switch to pure/direct and use the pre-outs.

Pioneer has a few in your price range. Some Costco stores even have the Pioneer 1522 still available that has everything you might need at the same price as the Emotiva.

You could also consider a used UMC-1 they're selling around $350 and most will have plenty of warranty left. Good luck
