I hope this hasen't been covered but if it has would someone be so kind as to point me in the wright direcion! I have a pioneer elite vsx-49tx old but wonderful reciever, which I like to keep. It has 7.1 multichannel inputs. I know it cannot do dolby truehd nore dtshd master audio. Here is the quest. can a reciever like the harmon avr247 which has hdmi input and 7.1 multichannel output as preamp output be used, if the blueray player already decodes these formats? I just like to keep the pioneer as the amp, and let the harmond be the preamp. The harmond has hdmi input but does not decode the true hd nore the dts hd format. I hope I explained my self clearly. Help would be most appreciated!!!!
