    Default To preamp or not

    I have Pioneer SA-7500 amp which I want to hook up a cd player.
    It doesn't have a cd input, it has an aux input I am using for an MP3 player.
    I currently plugged the cd player into the tuner input, it sounds okay. BUT, will this hurt the amp?

    OR, should I get a modern preamp with all the inputs that I need?

    Any "line level" input is fine - that includes tuner, aux, and the two(?) tape monitor inputs ("Tape Playback").
    all the best,

    According to the schematic diagram, the Aux input and the Tuner input are wired to the same point via the selector switch, so I don't see any issue with what you are doing. In essence, the only difference is the label.

    That's pretty much what I do .Going from my Yamaha rx-v665 avr audio outs into my Onkyo P301 pre/amp into the tuner section inputs.This way I get I-net radio , my dock w/ i-pod, and F.M. and t.v.Cdp and tt/ phono inputs go direct. This affords me a healthy dose of flexabiliy and variety into my 2-chll rig.
