Yes, you got it. Let us know how it sounds as I am not familiar with the 50/50

Will do! I'll test it out as soon as I'm home.

This tuesday or wednesday I'm going to be doing an A/B with two things: effects out vs. normal out, and my never replaced filter caps vs brand new ones.

Could you make some clips? Especially from the effects out / normal out A/B? You've got a 20/20, right?

(this is Mhgny_JP from JP forums btw)

So, are the overall output controls disabled when using the send fx instead of the normal output? Do you control the overall level with the master pots? Last question: is it really safe to do this or could it damage something after long time use? thanks!
btw, I'm asking 'cause I own a studio pre...

It would really be a great thing!

I'm definately going to be making clips. I've got a 50/50. ytse_jam, it should be completely safe to run the effects out instead of the normal output.

Mike B told me that there is no possible way to do damage to the Quad in this config. The master pots do become useless at this point though, but you can program your effects to adjust the overall volume fed to your power amps. This is also true for the Studio Pre.

Yeah the overall output is useless but you can still use the channel masters. I have tried both my studio and Quad running via the fx send into my poweramp and it does sound a bit better, a bit....more, if you will.

how about the low/line switch? does it affect the tone or is it purely a level control?

It's just the level signal control, I didn't have to switch it from where it was at on either unit, so it still sounds great. The only change, if you switch it, is that the volume is either fine or too low.

Can the output be modded to be more like the effects send...so that the volumes work correctly?

By using it this way, you are using one less stage of pre-amp tubes before going to the drivers in your power amp. I preferred to wire it this way because it was less compressed, much more dynamic..... 8)
