Hi guys, new member here, please be kind!
So like the title says, i’ll probably use a Micca Origin or something along those lines for preamps and headphone switching and i’m looking for a more powerful AMP, and i see there are not really a lot of options in a decent price range, nothing under 200-300$ range from my searches. Most tap out at 80-100 and depending on the class/quality you can’t really use all that power without distortion anyway.
Sooooo, i am thinking why not go big or go home and get a crown, the xls 1502 or the one Zeos is using in the living room the xls 2502. I am thinking more about options, because that would power whatever i may ever need in stereo mode no issues and maybe i can get a second one later on for an even crazier setup.
Any issues with my reasoning? what i may foresee as a problem would be maybe the distortion which may be a bit higher then a normal amp (THD <0.5%) , probably placing it somewhere were it doesn’t ruin the whole look of the desk and maybe power draw/usage something like that, and the inherit danger of blowing anything and everything up due to the power it outputs of course.
Any thoughts on that? or maybe options in the same price range that makes sense in the 200-400$ range?
