Okay ... been thinking today ... Is there anyway I can have my power amps a significant distance away from my processor. Been thinking that it would be ideal if I could put the rear power amps behind the sofa next to the rear speakers, then would only have short runs to each of them ... the problem would be the long distance that the signal cables will need to be. Has anyone done this before. I guess I could use balanced line drivers/recievers on each channel ... problem is finding some at a reasonable cost ... or building my own (not sure if Steff would trust me to do that) ... but that would involve designing circuit boards, etc, or using veroboard. I'd been thinking of electronic convertors, but reasonable priced transformers would also be fine. Vikki Edit: Steff errrr can't we just use decent long phono cables?
