Connecting preamp to receiver already with a phono
I'm an audio newb who recently became fascinated with analog sound and equipment.
I currently have a JVC JR S100 receiver (has a phono) that lines the sound from my turntable (Sony PS-T3) to my speakers. I am considering buying a separate preamp because I have heard the sound is better with one, but I have also heard that coupling a preamp with the internal preamp I already have in the receiver leads to sound distortion.
My question may be simple -- is there a way to connect a preamp to my receiver without compromising the quality of the sound? Looking forward to learning from all of you.
