Hi folks.
I am running a rotel RC995 Pre amp and 2 RB971 (effectively as a class D amp each).
My question is this:- My RC995 has 2 switched power outlets so when it is turned on it can power 2 other components. Is it advisable to run my power amps through these so when i turn on my pre amp they also come on. WOuld it degrade the sound etc if i do this.
Grateful of any advice.
Regards
John

Thanks for the reply.
In the manual, it stated that the switching will do up to 800w total power consumption. The power amps have a power consumption of 250w each, leaving a redundancy of 300w in total.
So, assuming that the total is cumulative (and i am not missing an obvious rule that states when connecting 2 or more items that the out put of each is doubled etc) i should be safe connecting them?

Also, my power amps currently use a 3 pin plug arrangement (uk) and the connectors in the rear of the pre amp are 3 pins but in a different configuration (rectangular push in connector with a flat horizontal centre feamale and one squareish small feamle either side). As i am new to electronics, i am not sure what this is called and where i can get one.
Grateful of any help
