Sorry for the short thread title, but it seems my last attempt, had the bug. Here is a pic of the circuit diagram of the main amp board of a kenwood A58 amplifier. What i need is someone to point out were to connect to so i have a direct input to the power amp section, bypassing the pre amp. I have a nice rotel pre amp rsp 960ax, and i want to try and use the kenwood as a power amp. Here is my pre amp, and the denon ud-m31 i am using for power at the moment If it helps, here is the diagram for the seperate pre amp board that connects to CN6 at the top left of the diagram i poste in the op, i am sure this is were i need to connect to. From what i can figure out, the inputs go through their input section, then through the dolby section, then to here and then to the power amp section. I think i need to connect to 4-L 5+6-G 7-R from CN6 but need to be sure. basically, i cant afford a power amp to go with my rotel rsp-960AX so figured i would try and use the power amp section of the kenwwod, it is 60wx2, rather than using the denon. thanks for any help.
