    Not a good idea at all.

    You need a preamp of some kind to go between the guitar and this amplifier, otherwise you will have an impedence mismatch. Serious damage is unlikely, but it will sound rotten.

    A Line 6 Pod, Behringer V-Amp, Boss GTwhatever will all act as a guitar preamp and allow you to use the 540 line inputs.

    don't know if you know or care about this, but you should check out guitar rig by native instruments - you can plug your guitar straight into your pc's soundcard (I use a preamp, but it doesn't really make much difference if I connect directly to my cheapish audigy 2 zx). You can also plug directly into the supplied pedal (which connects via usb). Either way, you can then use your soundcards output to your receiver, or you can just forget about the receiver and use the pc's speakers if it's a decent setup.

    http://www.native-instruments.com/index.php?guitarrig2_us# has a nice demo movie :D
