OK this will be a n00b question please....Just how do I hook the DV up to play on my HiFi setup? If I get it wrong will I do damage to either the DV or my Amp? Never used anything like this before, but was bought some good headphones that sound crap coming from the headphone socket of my Amp (which only supports up to 16 ohms) Thanks
Try connecting the DarkVoice to the REC(OUT) for either one of the tape deck connections. I think that will give you the full-volume signal for whatever you are listening to, and you can use the volume control on the DarkVoice to adjust the volume for the headphones.
Edit: You may also need to press the Tape Monitor button on the front of the A700mk3, to find a setting that makes it work.
Edit2: Set Tape Monitor to "Source".
Thank you HappyMax :) I spent half the night last night trying to figure it out thanks...Being a pre-amp, if I get it wrong it won't damage iether or both?
Nothing will be damaged.
The only way to damage something would be to connect the speaker outputs on the integrated amp to an RCA connector (anywhere) or to the headphone output of the DarkVoice. You'd have to do some very creative wiring to make such a connection, so don't worry about it.
Making "incorrect" RCA connections isn't going to damage anything. The only risk would be that you make a foolish connection and your speakers or headphones play VERY LOUDLY. If you want to be extra-safe, just turn the volume down on both the amps, and ramp up slowly, with music playing, after you change the connections.
But seriously, you will be fine. Connect the REC(OUT) on the A700 to the input (the "RCA" connectors) on the DarkVoice, set the Tape Monitor to "Source" on the A700, and enjoy your music.
Thanks man! Got that amp about 1998, and apart from just moving the cabinet to get behind and paint not needed to touch it since, a lot of memory has gone in nearly 20 years ..lol!
