Ahhh....the home theater pre-pro....my thoughts on them are basically summarized by the phase "can't live with them, can't live without them"! Modern pre-pros are the brain of all modern home theaters. An AVR (audio video receiver) is essentially a pre-pro and multi-channel power amplifier in one box. Pre-pro's do a number of essential things without which it would be virtually impossible to watch movies in surround sound.
