    I have a question about this amp's pre-out/main-in connectors. The backpanel has on the left a 6channel input (5.1). To the right it has a 7 channel pre-out (6.1) and ALSO another main-in! So, the main-in on the 6ch input only functions when I set the input mode to "ext. 6CH INPUT". I understand this. But what about the other main-in??? The main-in/main-out are NOT coupled as some integrated amplifiers that have so called "pre/main couplers".

    I have bought a power amplifier and want to use it to drive my front speakers. I have connected it to the main-out. This works great. But now my Yamaha has 2 channels of amplification unused and since I want to enjoy DD-EX/DTS-ES can I simply connect the rear-center-preout to one of the main-in connectors? (not the main-in of the 6ch input, but the other)

    The manual is not clear about all this and I don't want to fry my amps.

    Thanks for your info,<br />Han
