Always great to return to this forum , best one by far!
Ok so i had a discussion when i first came into this forum about what cans i should buy. Ended up purchasing the Beyers DT880 (250ohm) and i am driving them with my cheap but good ( Ocean Bravo tub amp) which i am very satisfied.
I recently purchased a TT Rega RP1 and decided to go vinyl. I am not into vinyls so thats why i am turning to you guys ,to help me with your expertise and good knowledge.
1st scenario : I want to play my RP1 with my Byers . So if i have understood correctly from reading about it i would definitely need a phono Pre amp to amplify the signal of the Rega RP1 . Then i can connect it to my headphone amp ( Ocean Bravo ) through an RCA cable , then plug my beyers onto my headphone amp and i am done right ?
thats my first question and PLEASE correct me if i am wrong . :)
I have a budget under 200$ for the best phono pre amp out there and i would like to ask what good audiophile phono pre amp there is under this budget.
2nd scenario and the one that bothers me the most. I do not have any speakers yet but i only have my computer speakers ( B&W MM1s) which i am extremely satisfied . I have connected them to my imac through a usb cable and i play mostly FLAC files and can say it was one of the best purchases i have done. Been using it a lot and i am very satisfied . ( dont know if you would agree or call me a noob here but this is my humble non-expert opinion :) )
so i need to connect my Rega RP1 with my MM1 to play through loudspeakers when i want to. and HERE comes the problem.
If i have undestood again correctly i need to have my phono pre amp ( which i will purchase anyway because i want to listen on my headphones) , and i will also need an Amplifier for my MM1 s ?
Or to put it another way , how can i connect my RP1 to my MM1s ( the B&W MM1s have only an AUX input and then USB which i dont think its an option ) I am not sure if the MM1s have a built in amp.
For the scenario 2 i have a budget also of 200$
So please i would love to hear from you guys and suggest what the best option here given the budget constrains ( theres always some constrain isnt there :) )
