I currently have the Yamaha Aventage RX-A2030 receiver powering Polk Audio RTI-A7's towers as fronts, A3's bookshelves as rear surrounds, and the Csi-A6 center channel speaker. The RTI-A9 towers just went on sale for a hot boxing week price so I pulled the trigger on them with a plan to move the A7's to the rear, and the bookshelves as mid-surrounds (my room doesn't really work with this). After thinking this over, and since a considerable amount of my listening is music (often in 2 channel), ...
Could I leave my setup as it is, and use the AVR's front pre-outs to an external amplifier (I'm looking at the Emotiva XPA-2), to power the A9's along side the A7's.
Will the pre-out still output signal when the AVR speaker output channels are being used? And assuming this works, would this be a good idea in regards to any timing differences or speaker interference?
Thanks in advance for any responses.

If you think your AVR is defective, refer to the Owner's manual and reset the microprocessor a few times in a row.
