Preamps Advice

I have recently purchased a stereo power amp. It has no remote, therefore I will need to control volumes etc from the source (CD player etc) if I linked the source directly to power amp. However I can also use a preamp. Since dedicated preamps tend to be really expensive, could I just use a normal stereo receiver instead? All I want is to be able to control my sources and their volume through a remote. If this could be done, what in terms of connections will I need to look out for to allow that receiver to connect to my power amp?

I look forward to any help/advice you can offer me.

A set of preamp outputs for the L/R channels.

Pre-amps don't have to be expensive. Have a look on ebay and then google to see if you can find reviews of anything that looks tempting. From experience I can recommend the Creek OBH-12 as a little bargain - it's a passive pre-amp with 3 inputs (one of which is a tape loop) and remote control.
