I just got a B&K 7270 which has a 12v trigger input on it. My current receiver doesn't have a 12v output but I will be upgrading to the Outlaw 950 when my number comes up. My question is, how does the 12v trigger work? What exactly is it doing. It was my impression that when i turn on my Outlaw, my B&K will automatically come on, and when I turn the Outlaw off the B&K will shut down. If this is true, I understand the turning on part, but at shutdown, the B&K manual told me to turn off the amp before turning off the preamp, and i don't see how this would happen if i was using the 12v trigger. Am i misunderstanding how these work? Or is it really unimportant in which order components are turned on and off in? Thanks for any info.
