Is there any difference in the RCA inputs in the back of the R8 that would affect the sound. They are marked pre-in, aux 2, aux, 1 and CD.
What happens if I plug my lossless music player into one or the other of these 4? CD player into Aux 1...Does the amp care? Do they all go through the same electrical wiring to get to the pre-amp section?
Thanks Carl. I actually just did the same thing and found the pre-amp input disables my R8 volume control in favor of the pre-amps volume, so I know there was some logic built into the inputs. I just was not sure about how the others might be different.
The only difference I noticed is that in going through the "preamp in", the R8's volume control is bypassed so that your preamp has control. All the other inputs seem to share the same pathway in which the R8's volume control remains in effect.
