Pre amp and processor options, on a budget.


Standard Member
Hi all,

I'm looking for a receiver with pre-outs or a pre/pro that can handle 7.1 LPCM over HDMI.

I don't need a power amp stage (but won't refuse one), as using an external power amp.

All I need is to strip LPCM from HDMI, output this to the power amp, and pass the video through. I will likely be using only one HDMI source, and maybe a DAB radio, so inputs are not a big issue either.

As my requirements list is small, I'm happy to look at any option, cheaper the better (I'm just looking for a stop-gap measure until a pre/pro releases that I actually want).

All advice very gratefully received,
