A newbie to this exciting hobby...glad I found out about this forum. I've read some threads regarding pre-outs but i'm still in limbo to what its use. I have an HK AVR85 with JBL scs series surround package. I started going over the manuals for the receiver since i started reading the threads on this forum. I came across this pre-outs...can someone please explain what kind of unit that i can plug in there and the difference would it make. Another thing, where should i connect my equalizer? Thanks for whatever reply you could share. Mabuhay kayo!!
