I had the amp running out to the high level inputs into the sub and then out to the speakers. It's a moot point now. My amp died yesterday.
Hi Paul,Well, we'll find out. I just pulled the trigger on a One.2...white finish . Going for the stock PSU right now. Will probably upgrade to either battery or the 30v/130w supply when I figure out which will work best for me. For now, I'll be counting down the days until it gets here!! Can't wait to be a part of the club here Cheers!Mike
...The short answer is that the small supply works fine and will give you around 30wpc @ 8 ohms, I think. You'll get up around 40wpc with the 30/130w supply @ 8 ohms. Here are the measurements:http://store.virtueaudio.com/PhotoGallery.asp?ProductCode=VRTU%2DIA%2DVAONE%2E2%2DPBF%2D1&PhotoNumber=5
I also ordered my new Two.2 with the standard PS for openers. I want to see what all the shouting is about before upgrading. I expect I will eventually opt for either JT's switching supply or the Red Wine Black Lightning but first I want to get it broken in and compare it to my other amp, my beloved Khartago. I'll write up my impressions as well in due course. The Virtue is due this Friday.
However, high efficiency speakers and dirty AC power (neither one an issue in my system) could be the determining factor. That and cost. I haven't always been able to afford the Red Wine Audio stuff but it has always been worth it when I've stepped up to the bar. I will never give up my Isabellina. So it will be personal preference, synergy and budget that determines the case for me.
What's considered high efficiency in a speaker? Greater than 95db/w/m? I love the sound of my Axiom's but they're only between 89-92db (anechoic vs room) sensitive...middle of the road from what I'm able to surmise. My guess is that I'll get more initially out of just cutting off at 80hz and running the line level to my sub. But, if I had to choose, I think I'd go for the black background. My first dabble in "bang for the buck low-fi" was a Panny XR-55 and what struck me initially was the completely black noise floor. Who knows? Maybe I'll end up trying both and selling one on the forum or Audiogon Counting down the days!Mike
