Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Just to clarify, you want to drive more power to your main (front left/right) speakers, not to drive additional speakers, is that correct?

Expert:  Nathan replied 8 months ago.

In either case, really, this would be problematic.

The issue here is that this is a relatively basic model receiver, and it has no preamp outputs (other than for the subwoofer) which would lend itself to use with an external amp. It is possible, but you'd have to use some converters that end up really hurting the sound quality so any power gained would be tainted by noise and distortion.

This is a new enough (current model year) receiver that you'd really be better off selling it (or see if you can return/exchange) and buy a better receiver from the start. You'd spend less for the value of this receiver + upgrade to a more powerful one than you would for the cost of this one + a decent power amp, and the integrated audio quality will be much better in the end anyway.

I can explain more about the forced connections if you'd like, but you'll be much happier in the long run with a different receiver. I can recommend options for that as well.

Best regards, ***** ***** for the news,
