I am considering purchasing this older model bryston pre-amp (demo stock) but it does not have ht bypass. To get around this I was hoping to run two different pre-amps at the same time into the same channels on my Rotel RMB-1095 as it has both xlr and rca inputs. Theoretically when i listen to cd's i would use the xlr connection from the bryston, for anything else (ht, pvr, ps3 etc) I would use thr rca's from the rsp-1069.
My concern is, there is no switch between unbalanced and balanced on the 1095 pwr amp. So what happens if the 1095 receives a live signal from both simultaneously. Will it shut off? Will it just pick one over the other? If it does pick one over the other will the resultant sound be degraded? Or will it just blow up?
Does anyone here have an opinon as to how this could work?
The 1069 pre/pro is also connected to the 1095 pwr amp via 12v trigger. I may also have to switch off the 1095's 12v trigger so that it will operate while the bryston is connected.
