I have a PS Audio Trio C-100 integrated amplifier and I recently bought a tube-based power amplifier. I wonder if I can keep using the Trio as a preamplifier with no speakers connected.
The Trio does have AUX outputs but it doesn’t have any way of disabling the speaker output. I wonder if it cause any harm if I ran the amp with speakers not plugged in.
Yup! Works just fine as a preamp if needed. I double checked with our engineering team for you and they did not have any red flags.
What tube amp did you pick up?
Thanks for the quick reply. Very appreciated!
I got PrimaLuna prologue 4: https://www.primaluna-usa.com/prologue-four - it is a very fun amplifier. I am glad I can keep my PS Audio integrated and use it as a preamp!
Great choice! PrimaLuna makes some nice gear. Be careful, though, tube rolling can be an expensive rabbit hole
