I have an onkyo pushing 7.1 in basement livingroom with pre-outs to a cheap Sherwood receiver that runs (via speaker selector) 4 bar speakers, 2 poker room speakers, outdoor speakers, and office speakers (4zone) and it sounds great.

I have an Abus system on the mail level of home and have ran RCA's (and cat5 and cat6 just to be sure) to the Abus before I finished the basement.

My question is how to integrate the system in basement w Abus? I thought pre-outs but the other receiver doesn't have them and I don't think I can split preouts from onkyo (one to Abus and one to Sherwood).

Can I integrate the Abus without replacing the Sherwood with a new receiver has preouts?

Thx everyone...

I don't know what abus is - but likely you can split the preouts from the onkyo. Should not be a problem - the Onkyo should just see its output split between two inputs - splitting two ways is not a problem for "typical" input and output impendance..

Everything I say here is my opinion. It is not my employers opinion, it is not my wife's opinion, it is not my neighbors opinion, it is My Opinion.

Abus by russound. Self contained whole house audio. Builders have homes here pre-wired for it since it costs nothing (some cat5).

So splitting the pre outs on the onkyo has no effect on the onkyo or sound quality to other amp?
