PEC pots probably sound great.

Are the PEC pots dented? Dented...is that the word I'm looking for? Notched?

"Detented" is the word you're looking for (or "stepped"), and I don't believe PEC pots are.

They aren't stepped. They are an old fashioned potentiometer with a strip of carbon and a wiper. Albeit Mil Spec. Whatever that means! I guess rugged with good quality components.

However, from what I've gathered here actually sound pretty good and the look like the pots used in First Watt B1. Maybe a good reference to start with.

Since all my amps (not yet finished) are diy, I can use what ever I want to connect the pre and power amp together.
I know Nelson used RCA plugs, Naim like to use DIN plugs.
I was thinking of using something from Neutrik.

What is best type of connection and cable to connect the two together?

At work we use type N connectors and plugs.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N_connector

Would these be appropriate for audio use?
