Do you happen to know if the sub out splits < 100hz to the sub when connected and > 100hz to preamp out, or sends full range to preamp regardless? Can't seem to find much info in the online manual.

Bit pricey, though can it accommodate 3 x stereo power amps? (active)

(Need a phono stage for Linn system)

You may be able to put a splitter on one set of the output terminals.  That should work

BUMP


I also need a good, recent model laptop for my wife, so I'm open to some type of swap.  Laptop must have similar current retail value as this preamp, or be very close to it please
