  • I’m working on it!
  • I had the same question about more power to the 70s. My Onkyo reciever puts out 80 watts per channel which is fine for watching movies but I like listening to my music in 2 channel stereo and its not loud enough .
    I'm not sure about connections. My reciever has pre outs for a 2nd zone amplifier . Can I get a 2 channel amp with more power and hook the 70s up to that and my reciever at the same time ? Does it work like that ? Also if that's possible could my subwoofer be used at the same time ?

    Unfortunately no. You need a receiver with lr preouts. Most will have preouts for all channels if any, a few like the marantz NR line and some pioneer elite models 2.1 preouts (mains and sub). So, you have to upgrade the avr to get more power...sorry

  • Guess its a line out connection. If that makes a difference.

    Has to be main preouts otherwise it won’t work with the other channels or the sub

  • ^^^This. I toyed with the idea of adding an amp to my Yamaha, until I checked, and no pre-outs.
