Orphean M5 'Just Right'.......... (BD-Design)

Are you running your Bass Bin amps off of your Power Amp or your Pre-amp?

I do not have a pre-amp so there is not much to choose from... but fortunate, my main amps are silent (no tubes here!).

The best thing I did after getting my Orpheans was to run the Bass Amps off of the pre-amp.

SET amps usually have a hum that is hard to tame (As you probably know), and running the Bass Bins off the power amp transmitted the hum to the Bass Amps and amplified it to an annoying hum from my Bass Bins.

For better integration it is best to use the output of the power amplifier which is also handy to be able to exchange power amplifiers without changing settings (amps mostly do not have the same gain). If too much noise comes into the picture then the only option is indeed to use the output of the pre-amp (if silent too of course!).
