Upgrading RXV671 to RXV677 to pre out Fronts to a Stereo Amp


Novice Member
Hi everyone this is my first post, I have a problem which is mostly related to a matter of space (and then some convenience too). I have a 5.1 setup in my living room (Yamaha rxv671), but in the same rack, also an old stereo amp, a Pioneer SA-706.

So my idea is to use the nice front speakers attached to the SA-706 as front speakers for the Yamaha 5.1 amp, saving space and resource$. Thing is, my RXV671 nice as it is, has no pre-out connections. So, I'm thinking about upgrading to the cheapest one in the yamaha line that has both pre-out and spotify connect support (missing that now).

Question is: I will be able to connect *just* the front speakers pre-out from the 677 to the Pionner stereo amp and use Pioneer's speakers as fronts for the yamaha? Any thing I need to know? The Yamaha amp will be fully functional and the Pioneer will be non operational when I do this?

Thanks for any input to try to define this purchase!!
