Connecting speakers to two different amps will eventually lead to disaster, at least it would for me. I have the same 2-channel and 5.1 set-up that you are after and use an integrated amp with a home theater pass-through. This in effect, allows your denon receiver to act as the pre/pro and the integrated amp as amplifier while you are in "pass-through" mode. Simply leave the receiver off for 2 channel listening. Otherwise, I would look for a high quality speaker switch.
