No difference. And REL is blowing smoke. Don't inhale.

Pre outs, quieter, cleaner, tighter and less coloured.
You don’t want your poweramp driving your speakers and another poweramp, especially if it’s tube.
I’ve got 2 subs on my second system, and driving them with line level is much better than from the amps.
And there’s one less opamp (IC11A) in the signal path as you can see when you use line level.
Agree, use PreOuts. Last thing I'd want to do is to route a quality amplifier's speaker outputs and signal into yet another layer of cheap electronics, connectors, and crossover inside a subwoofer, and then on to another set of speaker connectors and speaker cables out to the speakers, thus further degrading the signal/resolution/detail to the main speakers. Best to try it and compare. The comparison results can be notable. Good Luck.
