    Now that is an idea. If funds become available (Audio Research amp sells) I might just do that. I hooked up the ARC last night... nice amp, especially with the Gold Lion tubes, but I think I like the convenience of the Goldmund for my use a little better.... plus, I totally blame Joe, but I got to keep trying different stuff ....

    The new sub has some speaker wire plug thing (I have not seen it yet so unclear how it works), but it looks rather hooky. I looks like an after thought. I think their subs are really meant to be line level inputs.

    The speaker level inputs work no different than the line level ones. If the method was a "hooky afterthought" companies like REL and Vandersteen would not have been doing it for decades. It doesn't need or require the level of cables you use on your Main speakers. The cable many companies ship for that use is nothing more than basic Monster cable used by HT installers. I have just used whatever spares I had around.

    Re: Linear Tube Audio MZ2 - MicroZOTL2.0 Preamplifier/Headphone Amplifier ...

    I am referring to what is shown in the KEF manual, not speaker level in general. I know companies like REL prefer speaker level .... I have not seen the setup with the KEF yet (the sub has not arrived yet and I am waiting but do not know when it is coming ). All I was referring to is the speaker level connection shown in the KEF manual looks very hooky...

    I agree with you about the KEF issue as from looking at the photo's and their less than helpful manual it is hard to tell if those are pin connectors or just flush mount banana jacks. Either is doable though.

    Yea, great speakers but kind of useless manuals....

    I think the best choice is if they will build one with two outputs... that would make it into a true pre-amp and really solve my issue (accept coming up with the funds )
