Hard to say really. Many separate's headphone output is nothing more than a monitor output and can sound rubbish as they can be very low powered.

If you don't have an amp to try it through, you've now way of knowing whether it sounds terrible because of a fault though. Can you not borrow an amp and speakers to try it first?


Non to borrow. Have been looking on ebay for good low cost amp. About time i bought a decent separates hi-fi. Then i can buy more CD's as only have one at the moment :oops:


I have a few cheeky amps if you dont want to blow any budgets

Thanks for the offer. All sorted now. The problem was the headphone plug didn't fit correctly. I've have a better one now. The sound i'm very happy with. I've also bought a vintage Marantz PM-310 amp in gold finish for £40. I had one when i was 15. It was my first separate amp. Next speakers?
Oh and buy some CD's :lol:

Cheeky amps? Never heard of those. Chinese? ;)

I have a couple of Leak Stereo 30's here - think I'll open one up and have a shufty...

The instructions for the Sony & Technics players in the above pictures. I found one but downloaded the wrong model and they didn't have my model.
Some of the download sites look iffy?

Thanks :D

I know the Fostex driver has a bit of a cult following, and those cabs look like a certain amount of thought has gone into them. The reviews don't seem to be great though...
