I've got a Rotel RA-1570 amp on loan, and noted that it doesn't have any Tape output jacks, but does have pre-out jacks. Since I use a CD recorder for needle drops, I was curious if the pre-out jacks may be used for the same purpose. This is a try before I buy situation, so I don't want to damage either the amp or my other gear. According to the instructions, adjusting the amp's volume or other controls within playback will affect the signal going out, which IS a difference between this and a traditional tape output. That's a manageable difference to me, however. Has anyone done this, successfully or unsuccessfully? If the equipment is in no danger of being damaged, are there any other considerations I should be mindful of, besides the effect of volume and tone controls? Thanks in advance for any advice.
