It would be far easier for you to simply place both terms in a search engine. If you would prefer to have answers supplied by us:

Good grief, do you get paid to advertise this snake oil preamp junk.

Basically a preamp amplifies low level signals from cd players, tuners, dvd players, video sources, phonographs, etc. to a level that allows an amplifier to power your speakers. It also acts as a switching system for your various sources. There are various degrees of sophistication with preamps, from extremely basic to full-blown AV surround with all the bells and whistles.

The pre-amp is the heart of the system.
all of the arrangement of inputs is done here, just to send a signal out to the amp.
The pre/processor is the life of the system.
Spend money there.

Well, Golly, Dave, you didn't ask.
Most of my opinopns are not backed up with lisrening experience, so I have weened off a tad.

Opinions are like heartbeats, nobody cares till they stop, then the cards arrive.

Sorry, I thought it might be carts, as in crash type.

I thought it might be carts as in carrying dead body away.

But, on the amp and pre/pro side, I am converted after the weekend with Outlaw's 970 mated to my Adcom 7607, very nice and now I know why they call it surrround sound and why all you guys told me to get a coaxial cable.

You know, the sound does really move around the room in some movies? LOL
