    Using MA5300 integrated amp as preamp

    I just acquired a MC152 amp. I already have a MA5300 preamp. Is there any issue with using the MA5300 as a pre?

    Only the one you posted in post #1 of your initial thread on the same subject.

    The 5300 has a preamp section and it would be fine to use but seems it lacks the connections you need for sub etc. I believe Randy may have solve your problem on the other thread, have you seen his response?
