Phase inverting and impedance with CJ and ref 9V2
« on: 8 Sep 2007, 03:20 pm »
 :scratch: I'm not very kean with technical specifications and have a question for specialists:
I'd like to use a Conrad Johnson preamplifier on my Ref 9V2.
This preamplifier has Gain: 28.5 db, Maximum output: 5.5 vrms and
Phase inverting like most conrad johnson preamplifiers.
Is it a problem with Nuforce amplifiers?
Are there any impedance mismatching if I use four Ref 9V2 for bi-amping (they will share the preamplifier outputs)?
Thanks for your help  :scratch:

Nuforce V2 amps are phase-correct.   Therefore, to use it with any phase-reversed preamp, connect the speaker cable in reverse.

Thanks for this answer but what about maximum output and Gain?
Is it OK for Ref 9V2?

Hi,
That's fairly typical of preamp.  Nuforce P9 can swing 8V output.  However, gain of 28dB is considered high in modern day's specification.  P9 has a gain of 6dB.   Most preamp has gain of 5dB to 20dB.   20dB used to be the standard in the 'pre-CD era', and lower gain seems to be the norm in 'post-DVD era'.
