Hi folks, looking for a bit of advice... After years in the hifi wilderness, I've just splashed out on a decent CD player, amp and speakers (Roksan K2 and Tannoy Precision 6.4, if you're interested). But, rather than fill the room with speakers, I'd like to use the Tannoys as the front two in my surround setup. Which may, or may not, require new receiver kit, because... Chappy at Richer Sounds says we'd need a receiver with pre-outs - and they seem rather rare this side of shed loads of cash But anyway, I can't see how passing the posh player's signal through another bit of kit on its way to the speakers won't degrade it somewhat. So, question is, is there any reason why I can't simply wire the amp and the receiver, separately and directly, straight to the speakers - always remembering to be very very careful never to have both 'amps' on at once? Alternatively, would something like a Beresford TC-7220 or other selector thingy be better than passing the signal in and back out the receiver? If I can't wire in the speakers directly, then some simple thing that switches which amp goes to them would seem next best. Or do I have to go the receiver-with-pre-out route? Thanks!
