I've been searching all over the internet for advice on this, and can't seem to find any concrete answer anywhere.

I'm looking to upgrade to 7.2.2, and need the right receiver, however I'm not wanting to spend loads in the process.

One of the older upgradable onkyos seems to be the cheapest route, provided that I can buy a 7 channel amp and use another amp that I have to power the remaining to channels.

So, the question is this: Could I use the 7.2 Onkyo 636 as a 9 channel receiver (7.2.2) using its 7 powered channels and 2 pre outs, or is it a case of the pre outs are for a 5 + 2 configuration?

Any help would be appreciated!!
