Being a self confessed lazy baztard, I was wondering what sort of detrimental, if any, effect adding a second pre would cause?
My main amp is a Yaqin, MC-100B, which I love.
Other than my 2 TT's, my sources are an Oppo DBP 95 for CD's and streaming from my computer, and an AKAI GX 635D RTR both with remotes.
I would like to be able to swap sources "on the fly" playing the same material for comparison.
Can I add a preamp with a input select, volume and remote (as a source/volume selector) and feed it into one of the line level inputs of the Yaqin, leaving the volume set without corrupting the signal. In effect have a remote controlled Yaqin.
I know I could use the PreAmp in inputs on the front of the Yaqin and bypass its tube Preamp stage but would rather not if possible.
I was thinking of something like this.
