Okay, sorry for my ignorance on this subject. Please fill me in here.
I currently use a 2-channel amp to power my Lsi15's. Someday, I'll have enough money to buy a multi-channel home theatre amp for my main setup and I'll then move my 2-channel amp to my secondary stereo setup.
This 2-channel amp has the ability to accept balanced connections/cables. I have a really nice unbalanced analog interconnect being used right now (which I'd move with it to my secondary setup).
At the time which I move my 2-channel amp to my secondary setup, how much better is it to invest in a pre-pro which spits out balanced signals and introduce another component in the mix rather than using a direct line from my cd player to amp (I had planned on doing this because my CD player has volume control).
Thanks in advance for your opinions.
