My setup is a AVR and a 2ch pre-amp going to a big chunky A/B RCA switch that then goes to the front poweramp.
2ch playback sounds much better with the 2ch pre-amp and through my AVR.

Weird...I would never expect a large difference with such a change. That would imply the AVR's pre amp stage is not good, or you prefer the 2 ch pre amp for some other reason.
