RE: Need a cheap new AVR

Like budget fi, I'm trying to understand what you're wanting to do.

It seems to me that the Schitt DAC isn't needed for the AVR for the TV. Run the TV optical output into the AVR and use it for the surrounds. The preamp outs from the AVR connects to your stereo preamp to drive the main speakers and the AVR handles the Dolby surround DAC.

If your TV has an eARC HDMI input, you can connect all your HDMI inputs to the ARV. Then, connect the HDMI out to the TV's eARC connection. Just turn on the TV and it will turn on the ARV automatically and turn it off when you turn off the TV.

The problem is that I didn't see much in an inexpensive AVR that has preamp outs. Why they add sub woofer outs and not preamp outs is strange. I did find a Yamaha that still has preamp outs for the main for under $900.
