Hi All, a question about splitting freya’s XLR output between a pair of Vidars and an SVS sub. The sub has 22k input impedance and the Vidars are 44k. If I split the 200-600 Ohm Freya output to those two will I get loss due to the mismatch of the two inputs?
I’ve alternately tried using the rca outs for the sub and XLR for the amps, but only the tube buffer mode seems to work well when mixing and matching XLR and rca with Freya.
Any suggestions on the best way to make these connections?

This is what Jason posted on the other site in regards to the audiohead article:

Not 100% accurate, but we're getting close to some really neat stuff.

In the meantime, think about this:

What if we could bring you new, cool things more often? Maybe even some special things?
What if you didn't have to join a big group to get the price down...or wait for months for delivery?
What if it was in stock?


Sound interesting? Hold on...

Not sure if this had been mentioned before, but a Freya with a switch to toggle the tubes on and off would be great, so that you can use it in passive or jfet mode without eating away at the tubes' lifespans.

Here's hopping for the Loki Max! Or even just a regular Loki added to a pre-amp with multiple SE and Balanced outs! Would love to have a Loki in between my Gungnir and Jot via XLR. Or something with a PEQ to compete with the RME ADI series?

use the hi-level input
Unfortunately, it doesn't have speaker-level inputs, just RCA and XLR line-level. I had also tried using the pass-through function of the sub, which has XLR outs, putting the sub between the Freya and Vidars. Unfortunately, I'm getting some audible low-level noise added that way, and I found out it's due to the fact that the pass through is subjected to DSP (AD/DA) even if you disable the hi-pass crossover to the outputs.
I guess I'll just try an XLR splitter and see how it compares...

@Jason Stoddard since everyone is having Christmas wish; let me tell mine: can we have a Jotunheim with THX AAA (highest quality one that benchmark uses) with tweaks so it can sound like a SPL phonitor. So, clarity, power and Audio Research type warm; honey sound. Please? This Jotun heim can also be used as a high quality Preamp, balanced; differential like Rag 2.

Great ... need to watch the entire series again :)
I actually prefer the sequels to the original, which always seems a little too slow get to the Road Warrior parts. Too much backstory. For sure Thunderdome is the most quotable.

Break a deal spin the wheel.

That is a pity. What i did with my Adams and Rel sub with RCA, i did 3 splitters and ‘summed’ one for lfe in on the Rel, works perfectly fine
