Default Preamp Voltage

Many different decks have different preamp voltage. It seems the higher end decks have a higher voltage. I want to know the advantages of this. My deck has 3 pairs of 5 volt preamps outputs, Is this good?

yes thats good...i think it just means that you don't have to turn the gain up as far on the amp, so it doesn't have to work as hard.

5 volt preamps are very good. The higher, the better, but the main thing is you just want 2-3 volts or higher, anything above that is still better, but it's not going to make a huge difference

Higher voltages can also help the amp to run cooler because (like dwh4784 said) the amp doesn't have to work as hard.

the main reason why higher voltages are better is because they induct less ground noise into the system. with the gains set near max, you'll bound to have some noise. maybe thats why high-level inputs have more noise?
