Default Re: What use is an old AVR receiver when upgrading to a new one?

so - avrnew's left front and right front via preamp --> old avr's input --> front left/ right speakers.

While avrnew's surround channels --> surround speakers

Has anyone tried this kind of chaining of AVRs?

If you want to reuse the less expensive AVR now and add it to a future system make sure it has a preamp out so you have a choice of using it as a separate power amp or preamp.
You may need a power amp to drive some surround speakers so buy the best you can afford now and you'll be happier later on.
