Hi,

Please forgive the noob question: Would there be any danger of damaging either the receivers or speakers if I connect the 2 surround speakers of my system driven by an Onkyo 805 to an additional receiver (onkyo 676) to just play music when the main system is off, of course? Would that cause any signal drain, or other problems?

Thanks!

You must use a speaker switcher between the two, otherwise yes you could have some big problems. You could use a triggered switch to automate it so when you turn on your local receiver it switches to that for surround sound rather than just background music which it would default to.

Or, just use one receiver for both applications.
