Any advantage of integrated amp/power amp combo versus integrated only?
I have 2 pairs of speakers that I need to connect to an amp. There aren't too many amps that handle the A/B switching that I require. One dealer has recommended connecting an integrated amp to one set of speakers, and connecting the second set to a power amp that is in turn connected to the Pre-Out of the integrated.
All else being equal, does this configuration result in better sound quality than connecting both pairs of speakers to an integrated that can handle the A/B switching?
Thanks very much.
