    Testing Preamps ?

    Honestly I've never actually sat down and tested my preamps . I assumed that it would be an ac current and gorunding the dmm probe on the closest location would be ok ? If im mistaken some correct me if not lemme know I've got it right lol.

    well i tested the preamps on my old pioneer, and jack frost told me to stick the + of the DMM in the hole and the - on the outter metal. and i believe its DC current. it worked for me that way...
