In my past experience, it works on some equipment but not others.
There is no way short of using diodes to split 12V DC signal into unique paths that I am aware. However, you could use a powered trigger expander such as Emotiva’s ET-3.
Edit: Not sure how you are feeding one amp with two different preamps/ prepro without HT bypass but my suggestion above may not help. You just want to turn on your A-21 remotely, correct? So you just need to supply a 12 V DC signal to the amp, does not need to be from a preamp. I remember someone had found a remote power strip and had a 12 V power supply plugged in giving them the ability to operate an amp remotely.
I would still run any plans by Parasound Technical before employing.
