AVR + Integrated Amp via Pre-Outs. Quick question, please advise!
Apologies in advance for what is a question I think I know the answer too, but would like to check with you all nonetheless.
I'm selling my Denon AVR-2113 and have bought a Marantz SR6007 AVR, purely to gain pre-outs. This is because I have until now kept my AVR/Hifi sides seperate. Now I want to use the same front speakers (B&W 684s).
Am I right in thinking, that seting them up together using the front channel preouts from the SR6007 to the PM7004 I will still be using both pre and power sections of the 7004 when listening to my CDs (CDP goes straight into the back of the 7004)? And that only the devices connected to the SR6007 will use the AVRs pre-amp?
I dont really care about movies but want to ensure my CDs sounds the same as it did when it was just the CD player, integrated amp and 684s, as I love that combination just how it is.
Sorry if this is a terribly foolish post, I just want reassurance I'm understanding it correctly as I've not used pre-outs or combined my hifi and AVR before.
