Hi, I am using Denon $1,500 AV-3808CI as a pre-amp after buying Outlaw Model 7700 amplifier (300 wpc @4-ohm, 0.03% THD below rated power, etc).
My question is, would using a pre-amplifier like $700 Emotiva MMC-1 improve sound quality? In other words, would a separate pre-amplifier like $700 Emotiva MMC-1 still be better than a pre-amp capability of my $1,500 Denon receiver, or it wouldn't make much of a difference?
I know I benefitted from adding a separate amplifier, but I don't know about benefits of using a separate pre-amplifier compared to a receiver. Please give me some feedbacks! Thank you! :)
