I use a nice Onkyo HT Receiver. I use the L/R pre outs to my preamp, which has a Home Theater Passthrough option. From there, the L/R is fed out to my Amp, and then out to my Martin Logan L/R speakers. The Onkyo handles all volume and Audyssey room management for tv and movies. Time for music only? Everything is off except the pre and the amp, and my Marantz SA-11S1 SACD player or AppleTV/Dac combo feeds the system pure unadulterated stereo. There are some good integrateds that have passthrough- Peachtree Nova, Naim Nait 5i, VAC Avatar SE, and many others, so it's easily doable if you want to pursue it.
