Hi, I'm new to seperates world. However I've auditioned local dealer's system who had Denon 3802 connected to ATI 1505 and I think it sounded much better than my Denon 4802 alone. So I decided to purchase ATI 1505 through private sale from of the forum members. Like I stated I'm new to seperates world and I don't know what kind of cables would go between Denon as preamp and ATI. Are they suppose to be regular analog interconnects? If so I think I'll purchase Outlaw interconnect cables based on reviews of members on this forum. How do I work with adjusting volume levels for each channel. Is there going to be any difference between level adjustment of receiver by itself vs. receiver used as preamp. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
