add power amp to receiver with no pre out's ?

Is there a safe and easy way to hook up a power amp to a receiver that has NO pre out's
I have a Rotel RB1092 and a Sansui 6060
Thanks

A commonly used sollution is to make a slight modification to the power amps output.

I have no idea what receiver You are talking about, but try this:
Replace the emitter resistances to a value around 10 times the original.
Reduce the idle current to around a fifth of the original.
Simply connect your power amps inputs directly to the speakers outputs,
but take care of the polarity not to introduce any shortcirquit.
If the output is of brigded type, connect the signal lead to one of the output on each channel, and find a way to connect the screening of the signal cable to ground. Also add a capacitor in series with the signal lead. 10uF would be sufficient.

Best of luck.

Hershey13 is correct, just use the tape line out connection

Tape line out would not be variable; it is fixed level out. If I am reading Stew's post correctly, he would have line level audio going to a power amplifier with no control over the volume.

yes

use the tape loop on the receiver. this is a line level signal.

No.
You could tap onto the volume control to get variable audio out at approximately line level, or you could add volume controls on the power amp, or just buy a control amplifier.
