Ok, so there are 2 things I would like to know, the first question may sound a little silly, but...
1) What would get you the best quality, Running amp through pre-amp or receiver with front L/R Preouts?
2) I'm buying a usb turnable, this one; http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/tu...f30b3a8662772/ Would it be wise to get a Pre-amp since I'm most likely going to need it to connect to the turntable?
My Rti A7's will be powered by an Emotiva XPA-2 Power Amp. I will obviously be playing vinyls so I'd like a opinion on the best way to set it up for the best sound quality (Though, I have a feeling the receiver and preamp will sound somewhat equal)
