By definition you can't go into the 'pre circuitry' and also avoid the pre...
I didn't say you could avoid the pre, I said you could avoid the influence of the pre on the signal (for the most part). Because the lower the level of input the lower the influence of the pre on the signal. So by maintaining proper gain structure he would have the least amount of the board pre "flavor" on the input signal. That is exactly the reason I put the word flavor in quotations.

Feeding a line level input into the board's preamps will have minimal impact on the signal - which was my point (that you apparently missed).
