Would it be worth it to only use the LIO for the DHT preamp feature? I love my amp and I love my DAC but I'd like to be able to use the 45/2A3/PX4 DHT tubes for a pre. Or would it be too wasteful to not use all the other features?
Vinnie-What is the approximate lead time currently for a LIO DHT PRE? Thanks.
received a beautiful LIO a few weeks ago that I am using as a preamp .I am thinking about adding the amp module. At this time I am still using my Bryston Dac, Manley Chinook phono, and Mcintosh MC152 amp. Tried several tubes and right now I am using the EH 6922's that came with the Chinook. Very nice combo with my Harbeth 7's
Mod arrived today. Very easy install. Sound is just great!! Easily driving my Harbeth 7's with great detail. Lps, Cd's and Tuner never sounded so good. The LIO delivered quite a blow to some heavy competition from Mcintosh.
If one has the AVC stage and is using it without the tubes, is there still an active solid state buffer stage following it of some kind to deal with impedance matching and all the other good stuff that comes along with an active versus passive volume control?
could the same tech that went in to making the Spatial LIO crossover solutions be used to make an "active buffered preamp module" that would add additional outputs to LIO specifically either for use with subwoofers (maybe with a low pass crossover of, say 80Hz baked in to a given set of outputs) and or the same idea but with a high pass filter (again say at 80Hz just to pick one number to make implementation simple) on a set of outputs such that folks using such setups could take the low end load off of their main amps and take advantage of all the benefits that entails for the outputs feeding the amps hooked to their top sections/monitors?
