Stax energizer connection - direct to source or via (good) pre amp?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all

 

I have my Stax SRM-313 connected through my Audio Note tubed pre-amp output, and set the volume on the Stax

to full and have the pre-amp at 1/4 for good volume. I think it sounds good.

 

What is the norm? Do you guys connect it direct to your source or via a tape loop on your pre-amp

(so none amplified by a pre-amp).

 

I note WOO recommend connecting their GES direct to the source....

 

Any insight would be really helpfull.

It's an amplifier with it's own pre-amp inside that you would normally connect straight to the source... your pre-amp probably has a tape-out that you can use for it that is unamplified, or you can use the loop of the Stax first. These ways you'll avoid a pre-amp stage. I guess it depends on your quality priority which way you choose.

 

I used to connect my Stax to the tape-loop, mostly to use it with more sources, but then I got a second DAC and split the whole system in two.
