What specification parameters would I need to research to verify this won't fry anything or lead to horrible playback sound? Right now here's all...

    Help for Newbie with system

    Hi, all. I'm just getting back into listening to music - moved to a new place with existing architectural speakers in 4 rooms and mechanical switchbox and nothing else. All I have of my old stereo system is an Adcom GFP-750 preamp, so starting essentially from scratch. My objectives are...
