Marrying your HT and stereo system

No I don't mean you are marrying them... I mean that you have a hot rod stereo and don;t want to sacrifice that, but would love a surround system at the same time

1: Receiver + Stereo integrated Amp



Pro
stereo integrated amps are a dime a dozen (well almost, and even older ones are quite good sounding)

Con
two pre-amp stages will mess with the signal upredictably
controlling volume between CD and DVD listening will be a challenge

Course, a money no object system would have equally good speakers and amplification all round
