I was wondering what sonically happens when you combine a preamp and power amp from 2 different manufactures? For instance, I have a Rotel preamp, and naturally was going to buy the matching power amp, but found a good deal on a NAD power amp. Which will be the predominant component-in other words...will my system have the NAD sound or sound like the Rotel? I always thought that the Power amp section is what gives the sonic character, and the preamp is just really a source selector, and volumn control. Would it just be better to match the pre/Pwr amps from the same company?
