The only concern is that you need to find a fixed reference volume level on the stereo amp so that the multichannel balances are maintained every time you use it. If the VC is stepped, it is relatively easy.
Thanks guys ...I'll have to find a good level and use it when I listen to theater. I am moving to a place that has in-ceiling surrounds that I wouldnt mind using for sports/movies but I didnt want to have to work real hard to work them into my rig. The main thing is I just wanted to make sure I wouldnt damage the stereo integrated.
Thanks fo your help!
