Hi PS Audio Family, new member here. First of all, thank you so much for having me in your group. I can’t wait to share my journey into the audiophile world with you guys.
Any audiophiles/guitarists/musicians I would love to have your input on this.
I am trying to create a Hi-Fi audio set up + Guitar playing set up all in one rig. I know it sounds crazy but bear with me. Due to budget and primarily due to lack of space (live in a small 28 square meter studio apartment) unfortunately I cannot have two separate rigs, one for Hi-Fi enjoyment and one for guitar recording/jamming.
So here is what I thought. I can have a Hi-Fi rig which can consist of passive speakers (probably LS50s) connected to an integrated amp (PS Audio Sprout 100). From Audio Sprout phono connected to a record player and another line (USB out) to my computer which I can stream music (Tidal). That will be my Hi-Fi set up.
My guitar rig set up will be my guitar connected through a Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface unit to the computer via USB and using a guitar amp simulation software (Amplitube, Guitar Rig, Neural DSP etc) I will be able to play and get audio signal via USB out to the PS Audio Sprout and out to the speakers.
PLS SEE ATTACHED SCHEMATIC FOR CLARIFICATION
I told someone my idea at a Hi-Fi audio store, firstly he was confused as to what an audio interface unit and Amplitube or DAW software are, and secondly he was quite adamant that a guitar connected to a hi-fi system will damage the speakers.
So, reaching out to all musicians/guitarists in the Forum that have tried or have such a set up, is my idea possible? Am I risking damaging my H-Fi audio set up? If yes, what is the alternative route for an all in one solution, if there is such a thing?
Pls accept my apologies if my question sounds stupid I am new to this and trying to learn.
Thanks you kindly in advance.
