I just upgraded my speakers & would really appreciate some advice regarding using the RX-Z7's internal amps vs pre/pro. (The thick bundle of cables entering the back of my cabinet makes me laugh until I want to change something... then I cry.) Any advice much appreciated!!!

I recently acquired 4 Outlaw Audio M-200 Mono block Amps. (Circa 2003, 200w @ 8ohms - 300w @ 4ohms.)
Would anyone suggest not using these instead of the Z7's internal amps?
Would using 2 (L & R) be asking for sound trouble due to matching issues with the center? (I could use 3, but then I wouldn't have a pair for the surrounds.)

My 5 main speakers, all NHT Classic Series, (4's, 3's, & a 3C) So on paper The Classic 4's which are 6 ohm should match well with the M-200's at their rating of 250w.

I now have my old NHT Super Two towers & Super One bookshelves to think about adding in as rear and/or presence speakers. Same basic question regarding their amp, but using my old (1985 Yamaha M-45 stereo Amp)
too old?

If you were going to hook this up is it a no-brainer to go with the external amps? How would you suggest?
Again, any tips much appreciated - Thanks!

I just wish it would work as advertized.

So out of curiosity, since this receiver is no longer officially supported, has anyone disassembled the firmware? I'm thinking of a few tweaks...
