Okay so here’s my current situation. I have a Monoprice THX AAA 788 Amp/DAC as my main headphone amp, I currently have it’s RCA outs plugged into my Edifier S2000pro’s, using it as a preamp to control the volume of the speakers.
I’m about to buy a secondhand DarkVoice 336SE tube amp to add some variety to my desk setup, I don’t want to buy another DAC just to run to the tube amp and I don’t want to be constantly unplugging and plugging cables. Can I get a RCA splitter and split the signal from my monolith DAC between the edifier’s and the DarkVoice? I’m never gonna run them at the same time, so I wouldn’t think it would have any adverse effect on SQ…
If this will work, what spliiter should I get? I would like something that’s not super cheap and won’t have any negative effects on SQ.
any advice or feedback is greatly appreciated!
EDIT: I was just reading some literature on the DarkVoice and apparently you can use it as a preamp for your speakers… would the Tubes affect the sound of the speakers at all by doing this? what are the upsides and downsides of using a tube amp as a preamp for powered speakers?
