I currently use 2 Adcom GFA 555II’s in bridged mode to drive my B&W 802 Series 80’s. I’m using an Adcom GFP565 as a preamp. I have been looking to upgrade the preamp with a new Adcom model, but a number of posters here have suggested (surprisingly) that an Adcom preamp is not a good match with their amps, (Thread 1171936986)
I also own a Sonic Frontiers SFP1 which I’m not using as it really isn’t powerful enough to drive the B&W’s effectively and so I would like to utilize it somehow as a preamp while retaining the power of the 555II’s.
Is this possible/ desirable and if so, how does one connect it?
Yes, depending on the integrated amp. Many have preamp out jacks and some also have amp in jacks. If your integrated amp has preamp out jacks, then simply connect ICs from those jacks to your amplifier.
