Issue matching pre amp and Dax

Postby DarthDiva on Wed May 17, 2017 10:11 am

After many years of being shut down I am reviving my system . I'd like to keep my 4 mono Lumley amps because they did a wonderful job driving my Divas through the original DAX . I had been using a custom built pre amp by the guys who started Sonic Frontiers .
I'm thinking of getting a Coincident Statement Phone with line stage instead . But I fear an impedance mismatch . The Coincident outputs 250k ohms and the DAX input is 80k . I've heard that the mismatch could roll off the high and low frequencies as volume is turned up . Perhaps not a happy match ? I'd very much appreciate comments and direction

Think you misread the spec says output impedance is 250ohms, so you are ok.

I probably shouldn't say this, but I have tested the DAX against upgraded crossovers and found it very bland and lifeless sounding in comparison.
