Am I the only one here who utilises a normal amplifier to listen to 'phones?
Tap off the speaker sockets into my Wharfedales-they were provided, originally, with an adaptor, albeit a DIN one (it was the 1970s!)
Not knowing enough about amps and the effects of a non 8 ohm load, am I losing anything?
You're not alone.
There are quite a few guys using small speaker amps to power their volt-hungry Hifimans.
