most HUs on the market have Pre outs, look around on crutchfield, find what you like. then hit up ebay to buy it

Hint - he's not looking for a head unit ;)

Can you afford a component amplifier now, or is this just for system flexibility in the future? Because you could always buy a dedicated line preamp and not even need to deal with a receiver.

background on my system, my sub is running off a 1kw plate amp, and my 2 speakers are running off a crown xls202 amp. I might sell the speakers and crown amp and get new stuff but im def getting more speakers and would like to be able to run it off my dvd player and into my tv and all that and still use my comp as an input......( currently running through my computer) figured best way to do this way with a preout receiver.....

If you already have the Crown, no reason to get a receiver.

I'd look into just a line level preamplifier...what's your budget?

I enjoy my behringer T1953 rack preamp. You might want to upgrade the tubes while your at it also, I personally went with the EI Elite Golds (matched pairt) and I'm loving the sound.

"The Behringer T1953 Tube Ultragain is a Two channel Mic/Line Tube Preamp with phantom power. It's design using Behringer's Ultra-Tube circuitry which basically runs the signal through a 12AX7 tube for adding tube warmth to the sound. The Tube is not used as a preamp but rather as a signal enhancement. The actual Preamplication is done using the low-noise high-gain 4580 audio op amps. These op amps are very reliable and clean sounding. They can handle more abuse than other IC opamps."


Interesting....a SS pre-amp with a tube buffer. Still, it would be fun to tube roll with the warmth feature. Mullard, Amperex, Telefunken, Raytheon, Sylvania, RCA, I could have a heyday.....
