Is that so?

 

Doh!! I should know that. Obviously brain-dead on a Monday morning when I sent that. No, the ZD volume doesn't control the lineout.

Hehe!  :)

 

Great, thanks! Broadens my options.  :L3000:

Seems I was half brain-dead this morning as well.

I forgot to ask, those line-outs do pass the sound through even when the amp is turned off as well?

You know, I'm glad you asked this 'cos it's gotten me to re-test the whole thing. I'm currently feeding in from the Invicta -> ZD -> Electra and I've been lying to you the whole time.

 

The ZD does indeed act as a pre-amp, not pass through. The volume on the ZD does control to the lineout. Not only that, so does the Low/High gain in front of the ZD (mine is actually a 3rd party modded ZD -> ZDSE but under Craig's guidance...so the real ZDSE should behave the same).

 

Apologies for the earlier mis-information.

Kidding mate ...

 

No, that's what I have been thinking all the time, a line out, as it's described on the back of the amp is usually pre-amped, so all settings apply. In case of the ZD that would be volume and gain (the hi/lo knob).

 

When it's not pre-amped it's usually called loop-out or pass-through. That simply passes the signal through and in some amps it does that even when not powered on, in others the power needs to be on.

 

Anyway, I thank you for clearing it up for me as you gave me all the info I need. It won't be that easy to put a Zana back into my system (again) but I know what to do (and get) now.

 

Or I could always ask Craig not to connect the outputs to the amp and simply let them pass through. Another custom ZDSE as my previous one was balanced. ;)

 

Thanks for helping me out with my silly question! :beerchug:
