Which device to use as the pre-amp

I just picked up a vintage Marantz 2226 reciever and it sounds good. I have a Rotel A12 intergrated amp, I was going to try and hook them up together and wanted some input as to which one should I use as the pre-amp?


Russ69, I personally think the Marantz 26 wpc sounds excellent and so do many others, I'm in a condo and can't crank it up anyway but this receiver is crystal clear.

Thanks for the responses

I'll play around and have a little fun.

Do have a little fun.

Maybe there is an audio store around with used equipment that they might let you take home to demo?

Never know what you might learn about what you like...


You should try a pair of Quicksilver mono amps.

It's the best 25 watts you will ever hear.
