"I run dual XR-25s with my DCX2496."

How many channels of each do you use, and what's the signal path?

It adds anothe A/D conversion, right?

Someone should start a cottage industry converting the Pan receivers into 6-ch amps with digital inputs fro the DCX2496.

I run a pair of Pannies for my three way active dipoles and use the spare channels for surrounds, with a pair of DCX2496s as the crossovers.

I don't use the volume on the receivers except to act as a master volume control (due to the way my sub is set up) but I may change this at some stage.

It all works just fine. Of course the ideal would be a DCX with digital outputs and a Panny with digital ins, but that ain't happening for a while.

The Sony Receiver below is about the cheapest one I have found that allows six channel access. Has pretty good specs and I've seen it discounted in the past for around $300.
