You will need to use two inputs on the AES pre, one for the two channel out from your sacd player and the other for the front L/R pre outs from your anthem. When you are watching movies you will need to set the AES pre to unity gain, try 12 O'clock. This is the same setting you will always return to on the volume nob as this is the point from which you will set overall volume from the anthem. Connect all other output from player to anthem as you have now. When you listen to music the anthem will remain off as it will be out of the picture for two channel music. The output from your AES pre will feed your amp.
