This is a strange configuration, but seems to work well except I have a small amount of distortion at low volume. I have the HK system and using the front and rear 5.25 speaker outputs from the HK amp into a line level converter and then into PPI PCX5800 Amp. The outputs from the PPI amp go into a Sub and to the front and rear 5.25 speakers.

I know that running an amp into an amp is not the best solution, but when I remove the HK amp from the picture everything sounds like crap, no bass, no imaging. I only hear the distortion at a very low level, but I have a feeling it's going to cause other problems later on.

Has anyone ran into this before?
