Default Borrowing +/-15V from receiver for pre-amp

I've been planning to build the Thorsten AA 2006 preamp, but couldn't figure out what to use for a power supply.

It occurred to me that maybe I can just take a tap off of my receiver. I have an AVR 7000. Looking at the schematics, it sure enough has a +/-15V supply powering its opamps.

If both op-amps in the pre-amp draw about 7.1 mA, does it seem reasonable to steal from here? Will I just add noise to the whole system along with the tap?

Alternatively, I could draw from a +/- 65V that's floating around, if I find a different regulator.

Any advice is much welcome.

It will probably work. No harm in testing.
