Question about Denon AVR-1082 Receiver
I have a Denon AVR-1082 that I have been using for the last 5 years with Vandersteen 1Cs in the front and Polk Audio 10Bs in the rear with no center channel or sub. I have a Denon POA-1500 Power Amplifier that I bought 22 years ago, but haven't used it since I bought the receiver. I recently tried to connect the power amp to the pre-out jacks to see if it would result in any noticeable improvement in sound quality. I connected the two front speakers to the power amp and connected the power amp to the front pre-out jacks but got no sound from the front speakers in any mode (stereo, 5 ch stereo, ext in w/SACD, etc.) I went into the system set up menu to the power amplifier assignment selection and tried both the Surround and Multi options without success. Since the manual provides no instructions for this, but shows how to connect the amplifier, I assumed that it should work without altering any settings on the receiver. The power amp worked fine the last time I used it connected to a HK preamp. Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong in the setup or what might be malfunctioning? The HK preamp was creating loud popping noises when I adjusted the volume, so I haven't tried to check the power amp connected to the HK preamp.
well as long as all signals are routed through the Denon your on the right track, now what else you have to do is connect all devices to the reciever do not loop one device through another. Also you have to try the different surround fields to hear the one you like the best for music I use 5Ch stereo for movies the surround field varies based on the type of movie

Ohhhhhh, so it has NEVER worked for YOU and it needed fixing when you got it. That changes everything. And you don't have the manual??
You can find the manual on Retrevo.com. Just register and download it. You're going to need it to make use of this unit anyway.
Make sure everything is connected correctly.
Look it over and play around with it. Speaker setup needs to be done before anything else. Did you get the microphone that comes with it? If not, go to page 23 and start there.

SOURCE: I have Denon AVR-2310...but lost
The manual... http://www.retrevo.com/support/Denon-AVR-2310CI-Receivers-manual/id/23452bh638/t/2/
I'm pretty sure you mean "LFE + Main".
You need to identify the speakers to the receiver as Large or Small regarding their bass-handling capacity more than their actual size.
"LFE" removes the possibly overloading bass in a given speaker channel containing 'small' speakers and sends it to the subwoofer.
"LFE + Main" is sort of explained on page 29 "Bass Setting". The intent of LFE+Main is to task your subwoofer with the bass that ALSO exists on all other speaker channels regardless of their ability to handle it all by themselves. As you can imagine, this might make the subwoofer respond to sonic events that are actually supposed to be directional from, say, the rear channel(s). In that case the event might seem to come from wherever the sub is located instead of the intended direction; or at the very least it might seem to come from both places which is probably not what the sound engineers intended when they recorded the piece.
Having full-range speakers 360-degrees around PLUS a subwoofer, I don't subscribe to the 'bass-is-non-directional' school of thought. If you've ever felt the concussion from and subconsciously glanced toward one of the speakers after, say, a huge explosion, the system is working.

the unit is ok. User manual on page 42 says that the digital sources can not be output trough multisource output.
Try to use VCR-1 VCR-2 audio output jacks instead.
