Listening to this on Tidal HD-Bimby DAC-Elise (TS6SN7-original isse/GEC6080-HD800S. I just don't know how enjoyment of music gets any better

 

 

I know it doesn't get any better than listening and watching this on YouTube (sorry for this repeat video):

The only thing better is my singing.

Hey @UT. Just to clarify. I can use the 3.5 mm headphone jack of the Elise to plug in active speakers correct?

Whatcha talking about. There's no 3.5 mm headphone jack on Elise. Well there is a headphone connection in front but that is a 1/4 inch - not 3.5 mm.

 

Anyhoo that is not how you connect to your active speakers.

 

See this picture of Elise's back? Those 2 RCA line out - those 2 vertical ones on the right? You will use a pair of RCA cable - left and right - or the most basic one has white and red. Can't go wrong there. Plug it in there....

 

 

the other end of your RCA cables goes into your active speakers RCA input.... for example the AudioEngine 2 .... see below the Input L and R  RCA sockets. Plug that in and Bobs your uncle, you can start to boggle.

 

 

but what happens if your dumb speakers have only 3.5mm input? Like this Bose Companion 5. The control pod of the Bose takes only 3.5 mm jack. 

 

 

No worries. All you need is a 'wonder' RCA to 3.5 mm cable like this ....

 

 

and plug the RCA ends to Elise's back - RCA line out and the other end of the cable 3.5 mm to the line in of the Bose control pod - which is the right socket btw - see picture below.

 

 

Happy listening :beerchug:

Thanks UT. I've already got this one and the speakers that I use have a 3.5mm plug to fit, would this also be okay?

Yes that is ok but you will then need this between that cable and your speakers. :etysmile:

Hearty hello again and possibly goodbye to fine folks on this Elise thread. I've put my Elise for sale here for anyone who's interested:

PS- is there any workaround to make the 120V version workable just in case someone from a 230V region is interested in it, such as an internal switch or a step-down unit, etc.?
