"The C32 is a dual stereo preamplifier with a built-in monitor power amplifier. There are two totally independent left and right stereo signal paths running through the preamplifier. One signal path is the listen signal path. the other is the record signal path. Each signal path can select its own program source from any connected input signal i.e. phono, tuner, aux or tapes 1, 2 or 3 without interference with the other signal path.
The output of the listen signal path is affected by all the front panel controls (except the record switch) and is fed to the main output and/or output 1 and 2 jacks as selected by front panel push buttons. The output of the record signal path is not affected by front panel controls (except the record switch) and is fed to all output record jacks.
The monitor amplifier program may be selected from either the listen or record signal paths. Separate gain controls for left and right monitor amplifier are located on the top panel. The signal selected for the monitor amplifier is fed to the front panel headphone jacks and the rear panel output line and monitor output connectors."
