Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but googling and searching on here havent yielded any results.

Can i use XLR preouts on a headphone amp to run active speakers? So go from something like the XLR preouts on a Schiit Jotunheim to power a pair of Emotiva monitors?

Thanks for any help and again sorry if this is an obvious question

Your not "powering" the studio monitors with the connection, your just sending a balanced line signal thru the XLR connection.
But yes, we on Head-fi do understand what you are trying to say.
