I am the happy owner of a Trends Audio 10.1 integrated amp and I wanted to know if it is possible to run a preamp to the Trends Audio without any problems? I would like to have a remote control and more inputs, but I love the sound and price of the Trends Audio, so it seems like a natural path to upgrade a little.
I run mine as a power amp (connected to a preamp with remote volume, component switching). There is a jumper inside the TA10.1 that you can change to bypass the volume control. The manual tells you how to do this. If you don't want to bother, just turn the volume knob up full on the TA.
