Default Int-150 used like power amplifier

HI
it's possibly to use the Int-150 like a power amplifier with an external preamps?
There is no a preamp IN connect dedicated
but on remote there is a "pass thru" and "external amp on" buttons...

Thanks
Roberto

Of course. The Int-150 is simply an amplifier with a switch and a volume
control in front.

Weary eyes eh?

Have fun, Hannes

PS: Roberto: if you don't want to fiddle with your amp, connect your preamp to one of the inputs, switch the int to this input, turn volume all the way up.

If you want to get rid of the now useless volume control and switch of your int, you most probably need to do some surgery inside (disconnect volume control internally and bring amp input to backpanel).

The Preamp IN on the picture are the normal Preamp IN for connect CD, LP, DVD, ecc. but are not the DEDICATED "PREAMP IN" CONNECT like other Integrated!

Probably there may be problem with sensibility, impedence, ecc. between Preamplifier and CD if interconnected there.....

"Preamp Inputs"
sound like inputs to preamp.

And, the speaker terminals
are outputs from the power amp.


Cheers,
