Can it work as a pre-amp for the Pro-ject power monoblocks?

You could run a headphone jack to rca cable. 
The RCA outputs are loop through at fixed level. One may be able to re route them via the volume control with some mild pcb track cutting and jumping.

I think rather someone else can make better use.  Iím looking for an easier way to offload the mono blocks as they were a temporary measure that are no longer needed
