2nd receiver to power rear surround channels

955 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  madbrain

I have a Yammy rx v2400 receiver that is about 3 years old. I am thinking about purchasing the new Yammy 1800 or Onkyo 805 for the new audio codecs and HDMI. I was wondering if I can use the old 2400 to power my surrounds and rear surrounds (4 speakers) and use the new receiver to just power the front three channels
I read that a setup like this is possible and the benefit is that more power would be dedicated to the seven channels, and I won't have to get rid of my yammy 2400. Any thoughts on this? If this is possible, do I use the pre outs on the new receiver and connect them to the analog ins on the old receiver? Will I be able to apply post processing from the new receiver to the rear channels? How about speaker distance calibration from the new receiver?

Yes, you could, if your new receiver has pre-outs. Just use the multi-channel input on the RX-V2400.
