I'm not sure about the capbilities of the hgs-10, but my REL Strata III has a high level input that allows the subwoofer signal to be taken from an integrated amp's speaker terminals. It works well in my system.

As stated above, does you sub allow you to run it in "high pass" mode? This is where the sub is connected to the speaker terminals along with your main speakers. The sub will integrate better for music using this approach.
Hi Smjason. I used to own Simaudio Moon I-5 and ran it with an NHT SW3P subwoofer. The NHT has only line level inputs, so I used the pre-outs on the back of the I-5 to feed the subwoofer amp. I had no impedance matching or gain problems at all between these two components.
I don't know what kind of output options the Velodyne has, but if you do decide to go with a REL I would follow the advice of the previous posters and connect the I-5 via the amp/speaker binding posts instead of the pre-outs. I think REL recommends this method over line level.
