Audiolab 800Q £599 and a pair of 8000Ps (£400 each), or indeed an 8000P for the treble and a pair of 8000Ms (also £400) for the bass.

If that means the other set are fixed level, then no. Back to the y-adaptors (sure we've been here before)

Yes you need a variable output - ie one controlled by the volume control on the preamp. And any preamp with just one set of preouts will do the trick if you use the adapters I suggested about a million years ago...

Any preamp, from the Creek passive up to the likes of Rotel, etc, will have variable preouts.

Are you sure this isn't a wind-up?

Not alll but the ones with just one set can be used with the Y-adapters. And that brings us back to

All but the simplest of preamps offer two sets of outputs to feed power amps, and quite a lot of power amps have preamp-level outputs allowing you to loop the signal through to a second power amp.
