Marantz NR1504, PM8006, Emotiva XPA 1l

I want to hook up LSiM 703 to the PM8006 and some Monitor 70 to the Emo amps (wineter only they is hot). 1504 pre outs to PM8006 to 703 (A/B?). PM8006 pre outs to Emos to Monitor. Will this work?

    Pre outs don't defeat the AB right?

    Just making conversation it is pretty dead out here. Dead boring.

    My brain hurts.

    I believe, generally, running through two volume pots is frowned upon. I have done it before though to incorporate a 2 channel preamp into a HT setup that didn't have HT bypass and it worked. I ran the center and surrounds off AVR then went AVR front preouts to 2 channel preamp regular input then to B&K amp. Use a db meter app to get the second volume pot equal to the speakers running off the AVR.

    It looks like a mess when you read it in text.

    Yes so it looks like the Marantz pm8006 has a power amp direct input which should bypass the volume and allow the avr to control the volume. And no, using the preouts won’t defeat the amp section: otherwise how would you use a sub with it?
