Combining an integrated receiver and an external amp.
If I have a 100 Watt Integrated Receiver with Pre-outs...if I use the pre-outs and connect to another 100 watt external Amplifier does that basically create 200 watts of power driving my speakers or am I forgoing the 100 Watts of my integrated receiver and now just using the 100 watts from the external amp...in essence doing nothing for me. thanks.

I assume you want to use the SU-G91 as a power amplifier to drive your speakers. If your receiver has connections for inserting an equalizer (may be labeled pre-amp output and power amp input), remove the jumpers between the pre-amp and the power amp, then run cables from the pre-amp to the SU-G91 inputs. You can have an equalizer between the receiver and the integrated amplifier. If this is not available, use the recording output (for a tape recorder on older receivers). Note that the volume control on the receiver will be bypassed with this connection.
Assuming you have a functioning turntable either self-pre-amplified or through a component (such as a receiver or integrated amp) with an internal Phono preamplifier just connect the self-preamplified TT directly to the analog inputs on the CD Recorder; or connect the CD Recorder to the receiver / integrated amp as if it is an analog tape deck (which it functionally is in this case).
If you plan to use them with a home theater, you will need a seperate amplifier, as most a/v receivers don't have tape monitors. With an integrated amp hook rec out to the input on eq hook output on eq to playback on tape mon. with seperates hook pre amp out to input on eq, output on eq to power amp input.
Sorry for the delays in getting back to you. Been busy here this week.
OK. to connect the 2275 to the 1152,there are 2 ways of going about this.
You can plug the pre- out of the 2275 to the power amp-in of the 1152. In doing this you are using the power amp section of the 1152 and the preamp functions of the 2275. Your other gear like CD player, tape deck and so on also plug into the 2275.
the other(better) way is to plug the pre-out of the 2275 into the tuner inputs of the 1152, leaving the volume at about 40% on the 2275 and use the 1152 as an integrated amp. This means you are using the 2275 as a tuner only. When you do this, you will need to use an RCA lead to jumper the pre-out/poweramp-in connections on the back of the 1152, and the 2275 ... L to L and R to R respectively.
I am still wondering why you want to use 2 integrated amps (each having a preamp and a poweramp section) The only real benefit the 2275 brings to your system will be tuner functions. You could just get a tuner and run the 1152 to be an ideal rig.
Let me know what your ideal setup you are wishing to build would have. Speakers, other gear like CD, tape deck, etc.
