You're right, I'm not a tech, and probably don't know the new terminology, so go slow with me, please. 2 months ago I was rotating my Pioneer SX-1010, and my Marantz 2270 back and forth on my Klipsch, now I'm playing with the 2160, LFM-1 C (Started with the sub, was so impressed I dumped the vintage stuff for the 2260!), and a pair of Focal Aria 906. Having trouble getting Qubuz and other music formats (youtube music, etc..) to plat together nicely, I keep having to switching the "audio output device" to engage the receiver, every time I start up! And yeah, I have to turn the sub on manually half the time. But go ahead, ask me to compare the 1010, the 2270, and the RR!
