I have just taken out of storage an old stereo that we inherited and I have no idea how to set it up. It is a SAE Mark XXXI amplifier, and a threshold T3 preamp. as well as Infinity speakers and a receiver and CD player. The hookups in the rear of the preamp are so foreign to me, and Im not sure which to hook my amplifier into. I also got some MIT Terminator crazy speaker cables. I remember this system sounding amazing, but I cannot figure which cables go where, and have tried to mess around with it. I went to a Electronics repair shop and he told me to just get a new receiver and that it will sound better than what I have. Is that true or is worth my time to investigate this.
