Been searching the web high and low for some info on the way to connect this Carver PT-1800 into my system of home Audio~
Currently running two Silver 7-Ts into a pair of JBL speakers and my brain is the Carver C-19 preamp. just picked up the PT-1800 and PT-1250.
I have another pair of JBL speakers collecting dust and would like to air them out with the PT-1800~
*****Do I get XLR to RCA adapters and run the RCA cables to the second set of MAIN AMP Outputs on the C-19?
Any Help would be Greatly Appreciated!!
Thank You and Hello to everyone~~

You can TRY that.....sometimes that leads to ground loop hum.

Welcome to the forum. I posted this in another thread where you asked about it, but here ya go again. The best way to do this is with something like this, a Balun. This will take your unbalanced RCA connection from the c-19 and transform it to a balanced output to go to your PT-1800. Can get you one for $175.
