CD player is Revox B226 - 2v, 500 ohms
Preamp is Korn&Mcway SP100. Sounds fabulous, but loads of gain. Specs unknown (it's a rarity). No idea of the input impedance. From around 1980.
I actually don't need to put the Rothwell between pre and power. Attenuation is done at power amps inputs (bi-amped sytem).
I just figured I would try the Rothwell because my previous CD player, with digital volume control, sounded slightly better when feeding the same preamp at -10dB output.
But I don't hear distortion per se. Not that I'm aware of, at least.
Still even with some attenuation in front of the power amps, 9 o'clock is loud, and 10o'clock shakes the house - but it's with 104dB sensitive horn speakers.
Globally all sounds great, I just thought I would try them - but it's no big deal.
Ah 104dB horns. Cool! Enjoy
