I was afraid of that. Looks like I will have to use my existing Denon receiver as the preamp. I have no video display devices that will accept an S-Video or Composite video signal.

I believe they make component to hdmi converter/switcher if I'm not wrong.

Hello,

I have a technical question concerning how to wire a RC 1590 to a RB 1590, would you use RCA or XLR? The two devices are very close in my configuration, 40 cms.

I read here on ht guide (thread : 43084) (I'm a newb I cannot post links apparently) that the preamp is not fully balanced meaning it does unnecessary conversion of the signal when using XLR connection between the I/Os. Do I understand correctly?

This means XLR on this combo would have an interest only if you have a set up where your preamp and power amp are far away from each other and XLR cables will help with that by cancelling interferences.
Other than that, you'll have better fidelity with RCA since it does not do unnecessary conversion to the signal.
This was not obvious because using the XLR should be better since it supposed to have better figures voltage/impedance wise.

Am I correct? What is the best way to go? I'm curious about that.

XLR are used for long runs. Last I recall over 10 meters or so or also running near power cables. You are so very close I would stick with RCA.
