Bitfrost to feed Lyr and Speakers/Amp? Help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I have just purchased the lovely bitfrost/Lyr pair to go with my He-500's I'm trying to figure out the best way to get some sound to my poweramp/speakers. I'd really like to make use of the bitfrost before the music hit's my speakers.

 

Is it possible/advisable to send the signal from the bitfrost to some sort of passive splitter which then gives me two signals. one for my lyr headphone rig and one for my poweramp/speaker? Or this splitting of the signal going to degrade the audio?

 

Bonus if I I can Attenuate/Mute the signals at the splitter.

 

I just don't want to lose the fidelity or compromise the audio with a 'middleman' per say.

 

Thoughts, Ideas?

 

Thanks!

Jacob

My Speaker poweramp-  Parasound A23 has a loop out which I'm currently using to feed my sub but I might try sending the signal directly from the bitfrost to the unbalanced ins - loopout to Lyr.

 

I still need to figure out how to get signal to my powered sub. Also I know the bitfrost doesn't have a built in Volume so this leaves me with controlling the volume on my computer digitally. hmmm... (i'd prefer a physical knob)

 

Still seems like I'm missing a piece of the puzzle.

Thoughts?
