I currently use the sunfire grand cinema as an amplifier and a denon as a pre. They are connected with rca cables.

Thinking about buying the new Marantz AV8003 as a pre and connecting the speaker channels via the balanced XLR connections.

One of my subwoofers dosens have a XLR input however. Will there be any problem connecting the sub to a rca outlet and the speakers and one other sub to the XLR connections. I understand there is a difference in strengt in XLR / RCA, will that be a problem.

The maranzt output to xlr and rca at the same time.

Thanks in advance

Michael

I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work. You will have to re-calibrate everything, but you'd have to do that anyway. I'm not sure you will really gain anything tangible using XLR to a sub anyway, unless it is an extremely long run.

Probably right, but the marantz have 1 xlr sw output and 1 rca sw output, so I could use both without having to use a splitter. :)
