    I have a Marantz 6010 AVR and I'd like to connect that to my Hi-Fi system that features HT Bypass.
    At the moment I have 2 LS50 and a sub connected to the audio amp and I' m ultimately looking for a 7.1.2 setup on the AVR, which means I need to get 7 speakers more - 2 of them being Atmos enabled.

    Have a lot of questions, but I think the below ones address the most critical issues. Feel free though to point me the right direction if you think I am misinterpreting or forgetting something.

    1. What would be the optimal route to add the KEFs back to the AVR so that I take full advantage of the extra power/quality? (as front L+R?)

    2. Is it possible to have the sub connected all the time to both the AVR and the audio system?

    3. Is there a speaker configuration that is considered optimal compared to the rest for the 7.1.2 set-up? I was thinking of going with C, FL+FR, SL+SR, SBL+SBR, DFL+FDR

    not sure if this helps but i would connect everything to avr, than use pre out to your hifi for the L&R speakers,taking advantage of the ht by pass but i am only a novice.

    I beg to differ.

    If looking for improved music qualty, then:

    1) Use AV pre outs to HT bypass inputs on amp. Connect front L/ R speakers to stereo amp and center, sub and rears to AVR. Connect music sources to stereo amp and video sources to AVR.

    2) Yes but depends on sub. If it has High and low level inputs then you are good to go. If not then maybe a A/B switch between the amps and sub could do the trick.

    3) Looks about right if that's how your layout is.

    What stereo amp do you have?
    The Marantz AV is pretty decent with music tho not as good as comparable priced stereo amps.
