Yeah keeping both :) 

 

You have 5 listening stations?? How many rooms do you have!  

 

I've always had two set ups, one in my living room and one bedside. But I'm constantly changing things around... I have 3 vintage amps that I'm happy with and 3 current dacs to play with at the mo... as well as 2 amps ready to be collected sitting on my dinner table (sold).

Home office has the Pioneer Spec 1/2 rack system and a Kenwood KA-5700 driving off my computer (call it two separate areas), garage, office at work, family room has a dedicated headphone amp in the form of my second Kenwood KA-5700 integrated just for headphone listening.  And I have a spare SA-7500 MKII that I'm not quite sure yet where to use it.   This bug, when it bites you, injects deep into the core of my being.

The long form would be Remote Controlled Passive Linestage.

Install between the pre out and main in connections, or tape loop.

Some products such as Placette, remote control volume and inputs, for a higher end audio set up.

Chase RLC-1 Preamp with the remote control and Creek Audio OBH-10 Preamp with remote are discontinued but often available on the used market.

Or do a wireless internal mod like this devoted stereophile:

Thanks for that link. $1595........I think I'll stick to my $49 partial solution till I hit the lottery. Then I'd be all over that. Had no idea that was possible. Like so many things, yet another mind expanding possibility. Very cool....

Does anyone happen to know if you can use the tape-out on any old integrated amp as a pre amp? I'm thinking it will be a set volume, or will you be able to control the level with the volume? 

post #8247 of 13893

You can't control anything, it acts as RCA cable extension.

Also, I found out that Tape Out on both my SX-650 & SX-D7000 was not as clean as the dedicated Pre-amp Out on the D7000. 

post #8249 of 13893

How did the d7k sound with the sx-650?
