I am currently looking to get a av setup to co exist with my 2ch audio (audiolab 8000 range with acoustic energy AE1 Mk2 reference speakers). I am looking for some advice on what amp would be capable of driving my AE1s which are 8ohm speakers and notoriously difficult to drive. I would like to use an amp with a pre amp out on the FL and FR speakers and direct it to an input on my audiolab 8000S and 8000PX poweramp. Is this going to result in an unbalanced output? I don't know a great deal about av audio but I know when something sounds good. Any help much appreciated.
