I had both the same amp and processor. I absolutely loved them, but moved onto tubes since I wanted tubes and to go back to 2-channel sound. In my system, I preferred using a DH Labs Toslink from pre to amp, but only used two of the five amp channels. I don't know what speakers you have, but I really liked the Stealth Premier( now discontinued) speaker cables driving a pair of B&W CDM-1NT speakers. I also found that upgrading power cords on each unit makes a very nice improvement. I had excellent results with an early Electraglide Referenceglide on the amp and a Shunyata Sidewinder Gold on the processor.
