Default university sound a300/1 wired for stereo?

I have come accross 5 university sound a300/1 amps. I understand they are only mono amps, but is there a way using another device to connect this up for stereo music?

Hi Scott, welcome to DIYAudio
Simply, you need a stereo preamplifier to provide the ganged controls, input selection and suitable input matching etc. that integrated amps have but obviously, all separate power amplifier systems will need them in some form too.

A stereo preamp will have line level outputs for a pair of your right and left designated channel amplifiers. This will make what are popularly known as monoblocs. Instead of twin signal lead, use separate ones to each amplifier input or simply peel a pair apart.

It's not always the case that inputs suit what we want to match to, so it would be a good idea to locate at least a User Manual on the net (possibly a free download) to check that a line level input is available, so a direct connection to the amplifier input can be made. The power amplifier output arrangements should be obvious. Good listening!
If only I had listened....
