I use the variable outputs direct to the power amps but that is besides the point, my questions are as stated.
Someone suggested that a preamp if used with a particular CD player would be preferable as it would make the sound more "musical". My understanding has always been that the sign of a good preamp is it's transparency. Hence why would one need a pre amp if a CD player has a quality pre built in?
In other words I am challenging the fact that an external preamp will add "warmth" and that if it does, it shouldn't unless you want it to.
What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.
