Inexpensive surround sound receiver with 2-channel preamp outputs?

I'd like to buy a surround sound receiver, but I don't want to have to swap speakers between the surround system and my tube amplifier for the front two channels. Therefore, I'm in the market for a surround receiver that has preamp outputs for the left and right stereo channels. Everything else can run off the receiver.

Required:
At least two SPDIF optical inputs required
Preamp outputs for front left, front right, and subwoofer required

Would be nice, but not required:
5.1 analog input (from my SACD player) would be nice, but not required.
Front AV jacks would be nice, but not required
YCbCr inputs would be nice, but not required
HDMI inputs would be nice, but not required.

Oh, and it can't cost an arm and a leg. Used and cheap would be ideal.

Thanks!

Charles.
