Here's an idea for experimentation: try connecting that single pair of Alpha cables in mono mode driving one channel only, then use the pair of AR's for the other channel. In other words: left ch. CDP to Pre via Alpha cable, then left channel Pre to PA via Alpha cable. Same connection scheme for right channel using the two AR cables. Swing the balance control (if you have one) from side to side for some comparison listening. Or perhaps connect/disconnect cables at the source, if you have no balance control. In stereo mode it'll probably sound off-balance with the two different cable pairs, but although this isn't the greatest testing method it may provide you some insight.
