Modern pre-pro / old school pre-amp integration
Greetings everyone! Has anyone been successful integrating an older pre-amp unit with a system also using a more...complex modern pre-pro?
I have a Marantz AV8801 running my main system (the only “real” system in the house), and I don’t really have the room or the means for another setup. But it’s only a 2-channel system, and I also have some nice 2-channel preamps I’d like to wire up from time to time. Ya know, for the phono stages, take recording, and the like.
Problem is, none of these older pre-amps have an HT pass-through circuit like some newer preamps do. But it seems to me there might be a way to do something similar anyway, using the many inputs on the back of my preamp, the Tape Rec outs on the preamp, and the like.
Anyone out there also integrating an older preamp into a system with their newer, more modern HT stuff? If so, how are you doing it?
