i know there are loads of threads about this but my dad has offered me the use of his nytec(h?) power amp which he says will transform my cd listening. It has a pre-amp as well, which in its current setup is never removed. The input to the power amp (from the pre-amp) has exactly the same connection as the cd input to the pre-amp. its about 8 pin in a din style plug, whatever you call that. Question is can i use the pre-outs from my cambridge audio directly into this power amp input, using the current cd player lead (2 phono to the din stylie plug) and use the CA to control volume etc. Reason i ask is that i dont want to miss any muting circuits etc that the power amp requires. thanks for your help, quick replies would be greatly appreciated as i would like to set it up in the morn!
