I was just wondering what most of the owners of Pioneer AV amps do about music. I'm thinking mainly of owners of the AX3, AX5i, AX10(i) and my own, the 2011. How many of you are happy to use them as music amps in stereo and/or multichannel? How many of you separate movies and music completely? And how many of you use the Pioneers as pre-amps connected up to a power amp? I've been using the Pioneer for music as well as DVDs/Sky+ in the 11 months I've owned it, but I've now made a considerable upgrade on my CD player, buying an ex-demo Meridian 507, and have the new 700 series B&Ws on order to replace my AEs. So now I'm concerned that I won't be getting the best out of my 507 by using the 2011 as a stereo amp. What would others do? One thought I had was to try and track down the Meridian 557 power amp (current RRP around £1600)second-hand - I've seen it advertised for around £850 - and then use the 2011 as pre-amp. Is the 2011 - among its numerous fine qualities - any good as a pre-amp?
