I just got my B&K ST2140 and I'm going to be setting it up tonight. I see it has the low voltage I/O control input, and my AVR has an output. Is this a good way to power up and off the amp every time? I've read the proper way to turn on an amp is to power it on after your preamp, and power it down before you turn off your preamp. Obviously using this method, the AVR would be turning off before the amp. Is this ok? I don't mind turning them each on and off separately, but if I can add the convenience, why not?
If it is ok, do I just use a 1/8" mono jack? Or can I use a stereo 1/8" jack? I have the stereo, but I can stop at radio shack and pick up a mono if I have to.
Please pardon the newb questions, as this is my first time ever dealing with an amp.
