Just out of curiosity, could I potentially use something cheap like:

 

1/4" TRS to dual mono adapter: LINK

 

Going to two of these Mono to Banana Plug adapter: LINK

 

To connect my headphones to the Mini-X? If it does work, is this not a recommended solution?

Since the Mini-X has common grounds your adapters would work.  Have fun. :D

Yes, that should work fine.  Alternatively, you could take that TRS to Dual Mono adapter, cut the mono TS plugs off and attach the bare wire directly to the speaker taps, but you would have to test the wire first to ensure which were positive and which were negative.

What would happen if I buggered up the polarity? Snap, crackle, ah fuuucc...?

Weird sound stage, like things shifted to one side.

No physical damage to the drivers though?

Wow that's the cheapest solution I've seen yet to hook up to speaker taps. Well other than DIY I guess.

Yea, this. Reversing polarity doesn't damage the driver at all, just plays in a different phase. I have a whole set of audio tracks that can easily test for it.

Your girlfriend whip you with that thing or what?:eek:

post #1796 of 3639

Well I just pulled the trigger, very interested to see how this thing stacks up against my other amps for my HE-500 and LCD-2.

Ah, the classic Lyr vs Emotiva. Let us know your findings. :D

Cheapest DIY would be to just snip your stock cable and attach the wires directly to the amp terminals :rolleyes:

And... why would you think I wasn't aware of this since what you mention has already been done on this thread? That's clearly what I referring to when I said DIY can even be cheaper.

Oh, it wasn't directed at you in particular. I was just repeating it since there are new people in the thread all the time who may not know they can do that.
