hi all is there a 2 channel sterio power amp with 2 pre-ins???

have tried various integrateds still cannot get quite the sound im looking for .

so if a power exists as above my idea is to use front pre-outs of 3802 to power amp for av use.

and conect possible a valve pre to "second" pre in of power to use with tt, cd and tuner,

if there is a better methode /easier way advice welcome,

thank you

Hi Mick23,

Yes, that power amp exists: it is the Musical Fidelity A-308 CR. Check MF website for more info.

The other thing to look for is balanced / unbalanced inputs which 'may' also do what you require.

something like a QED input expander will also do that - allowing you to use any power amp!


hi. yea such a thing does exist, my rotel rb1080 had 1 set of rca unbalanced inputs and 1 set of xlr balanced inputs. im seling this at a reasonable price so check out my post in the classified section. rrp is 850 by the way and open to offers......

I use the 308 power amp in the way you describe.

Simply push a button at the front to switch between AV and HiFi - works well and doesn't compromise the sound of my CD's and LP's in the way an all AV solution would, well untill you go high end that is.

The Roksan Capsian integrated amp has pre in/outs. I use it in conjunction with a Caspian power amp, currently has 3 amp channels in it, but is expandable to 5. So an Integrated amp with 5ch pwr amp would be sufficient for a 7.1 setup.
This setup allows me to use my CD player with the superior (to most AV all-in-ones) pre-amp in the Integrated amp. My processor is connected to a seperate aux channel on the Int. amp.

I feel this is a best of both worlds setup.
