Yes. The frequencies at which these children perform is actually the opposite of music. Any musical device will begin to deteriorate immediately.
I need to know FOR CERTAIN if this amp will amplify a magnetic cartridge turntable, or will I need a preamp. Mar 1, 2013
Unlike line level audio sources like DVD/CD players, tape decks, FM tuners, mini disc, etc., which have output voltages anywhere from 0.7V to 2.5V, the output voltage from a magnetic cartridge installed in a turntable is very low (2-5mV), and requires additional amplification. This additional amp stage, the phono pre amp, was built into most older receivers and audio amplifiers, allowing direct connection of a turntable. However, since the CD entered the market (early 1980's), the vinyl records and turntables were declared obsolete. Audio equipment manufacturers slowly phased the phono pre amp out. Newer stereo equipment, including most mini-systems and home theater units, have no magnetic cartridge phono input. In order to connect a turntable, you need to first pass the signal thru a phono RIAA equalization pre amp.
So, how would you hook this up for auto use? could it work off a cigarette lighter adapter? thx! Jan 23, 2013
Yes. A cigarette lighter adapter will absolutely work. You would need to connect a miniature plug on the other end that fits where the wall supply normally goes.
Can this amp be used with microphones? If not, do you have anything very inexpensive that will magnify voice at a meeting. Jan 24, 2013
This amp only has a line in, and RCA in. The voltages from a mic are far below line voltages. If your mic has a preamp it might work (usually a single AA battery could provide enough voltage for preamplifying the signal). So, no. But you could get a microphone preamp, and pair it with this amp. Connecting a mic straight to the amp, you will have to max out the volume, and barely get any signal out.
is 20watts output enough for a 17 year old teenager who likes to listen to his music a bit louder? I have micca motion series 75 watt rms speakers Jun 22, 2013
At 20 watts per speaker it can get quite loud at full volume. You definately can hear it in the house with the door clsed. That said perhaps limiting a 17 year old teenager to 20 watts per channel is a good thing.
Can this AMP connect with a subwoofer? I have been trying to find a way and I cant seem to do so Aug 30, 2013
No, this amp does not have a dedicated low level subwoofer output.But Yes, if your subwoofer allows for high(speaker) level input and has outputs. My HSU VTF 2 has these and I have used this with my subwoofer. If you look up the Orb Audio T-Amp, it does have a dedicated low level output. Good luck with your project.
Does the power supply support 220v input voltage? May 26, 2013
Yep.... 100-240v, 50-60Hz. As an aside, for adding sound to a new zone (mine runs in-ceiling speakers in the bathroom) this little amp rocks. As long as you aren't blasting it, the sound is both crystal clear AND warm. If you try to run too much bass or too much overall volume, it rapidly begins to distort but as long as you stay under that threshold, fantastic sound.
My young adult son is enamored with my vintage vinyls (Hendrix) and wants to hook up a late 1960s turntable. Will this work with just new speaker wire and speakers? Thx Nov 4, 2013
Depends on the cartridge on the turntable. Some magnetic carts might not have enough to drive the Lepai amp. Most likely it will work unless the turntable is fairly high end. You will need to connect the turntable audio leads to the amp with RCA cables. Then you just need speakers and wire to connect them and power for the amp. I don't remember if the p ces with a power cube or not.
