I just received a BAT VK3i that has a unity gain function that allows for HT pass-thru. I haven't had the chance to utilize it thought because it is in a 2 channel only system.

As Natnic mentioned Rogue has the option, but I believe the switch is toggle switch on the back of the unit. So to access it you must reach around the back of the pre to flip the switch. A 66 Magnum just sold the other day for $699.
Another option, staying in the Anthem family, is the Pre 2L. It will mate well with you MCA 2. I saw one go recently for around $600. Do a search here on the 'gon for more info on each. Good luck.
The Audio Research LS 16 has home theater pass through and the toggle is on the front. Works like a charm. You don't have to have a home theater pass through input. You can also just feed the pre outs of your home theater unit to a line in on any tube preamp but that would mean you would have to find a place to set the volume on the tube pre but you could still adjust the volume with the remote of your home theater pre.
