    I wish I could, but about 5 months ago I made the stupid decision to move home to MI lol

    As a resident of MI I have to say your statement is accurate. It was stupid to move back.:) At least the summer is nice here. All three weeks of it!

    this talk of a speaker amp for a utopia is absolutely ludicrous....for the most part you should be 12-3 for the most part...if you have to be listening at 7 o clock it is absurd...in addition yes you can overpower a pair of HP's...a good headphone amp will be the far better choice

    So this is what I ordered but unclear as to how I need to connect the negative terminals from the L/R speaker posts to this PM57 that only has a single negative connection?

    that's a bit harsh. folks can try whatever options they like with their headphones. tho it's possible to blow a headphone driver, it's not a foregone conclusion. the end user controls the volume.

    The directions speak about using a 1/4" stereo TRS jack. Would something like this work?

    i highly doubt focal will service drivers blown out by the use of overpowered speaker amps but good luck all
     
  11. TSAVJason
    Yup! I believe you’d be 100% right on that my friend.

    a chord dave will power the utopia beautifully or a tt2 or even the hugo 2

    your concerns are noted :wink:
    there are lots of suitable options available to drive the utopia
     
  14. rean1mator

    One of the things I enjoy most about the Utopia is it's ability to produce clear full sound at relatively low volume levels. At age 60, I'm trying to preserve what hearing I have left so it's doubtful I will ever feel the need to resort to using a speaker amp. The Ragnarok set on low gain is more than enough for the Utopia.
