Atmos hook up question
As of yesterday I upgraded my 7.1 to 7.1.2. Immediately fell in love and have now ordered another pair of in-ceiling speakers for top rears. Running an SR 7012 which can process 11.1 but only power 9.1.
My question is, can I use an old receiver that doesn’t have multi-channel inputs to power the back two channels? It has analog audio inputs (just stereo L/R). I don’t see why I couldn’t just connect the pre-outs on the 7012 to the stereo inputs on my little Yamaha v375 and set the receiver/amp to “straight.” Yet all the threads I’ve seen on this topic suggest you NEED multi-channel input to do it.
Am I missing something here?
