    Hi,

    I am new to this forum so hello all.

    I bought a Harmon/Kardon 230 nice amp but not powerful enough. Luckily I came into a bit of money and bought a Harmon/Kardon 630.

    Would it be possible to use the 230 as a pre amp for the 630. If so what would be the performance increase. What kind of cabling would I require.

    My apologies if this has been asked before, I did look through but couldnt find any thing relvant.

    Equipment


    TV - Daewoo PDH42L40
    AMP - HK230/630
    CD - Marantz CD6000SE
    DVD - Sony DVP-S7700 (Just cant get rid of it)
    Front Speakers - Acoustic Energy AE509
    Centre - Kef Q95C
    Sub - Kef PSW1000 (Soon to be upgraded)
    Rear - Kef 55S (Soon to be upgraded)

    Thanks in advance

    Steve

    you would have to try it and see if it makes any difference. You will need pre-outs on the 230 and 3 pairs of phone 2 phono cables.

    IMHO it would also be worth upgrading the Q95c as they are the weakest centre Kef produced and buy a evo AE centre to match your fronts. :devil:
