Not to knock the receiver because it does a decent job at HT on a small scale; but a 2 ch. pre, and any decent amp will get you further on up the road. Maybe a McMcormace ADL or similar. It has the HT pass-thru. Then say a DNA 05---a '1', will do much better and still use the rec. for the rears. Both these can be had for say 12/used,as a pair. A decent tube number, capable of HT would cost that much alone. So it depends on how much we want to spend.
