Hi all, headfiers.
I would like to have an advice before breaking all my toys.
I'm actually enjoying my LCD2 with the Wa6... But I would like to try it out with a speaker amp.
The only amp I have is a Musical Fidelity XT100 (with a XRay-V8 combo cd drive as source).
The amp technical details are these:
power: 50w into 8 Ohm ...... or ..... 80w into 4 Ohm
voltage, RMS ...... >20 volts 20Hz to 20kHz
voltage, peak-to-peak ....... 67 volts
current, peak-to-peak ....... 30 Amps
pre-out impedance ........ 47 Ohm
Do you think I could drive the LCD2 directly from this amp? or may I damage it?
And building the cable, can I use the original cable of the LCD2 cutting the jack or do I need a power cable o something else?
Thanks a lot for your attention and you suggestions!
I actually tried what you are talking about with my Musical Fidelity A3.2 amp and I can tell you to use caution if you do it! The reason; with the sound pot all the way down (at 7 o’clock if you will) the sound was freakingly loud and with channel imbalance. You would not damage your phones if you don’t crank the volume to much though... But the danger is there.
And yes, cutting the wire near the jack and striping it allows you to plug the 4 wires to the speaker binding posts of your amp (using the red and pink wires as positives and the clear and white as the negatives - to verify which goes where and with who, you can unscrew the mini xlr plug and see what’s wired with what).
You would probably be better off with an adapter though... Maybe with something like that:
