    Got it...

    I have the amp now...and was unhappy to find only XLR and speakon I/O on the back. This is bad news for those on the list who might have wanted to audition it in a home setting.
    I'm on the PE website now ordering some XLR adaptors but I'm new to speakon and am not sure exactly what to order.
    I just want something I can connect regular speaker wire to, but there appear to be several kinds of speakon connectors.

    Any input guys ?

    Speakon

    You gotta use speakon connectors, you get them, and set em up, they come with instructions, and then plug the speakons into the amp! Theres no other way!

    Thank you, master of the obvious . Now, which ends should I buy to plug into the amp and what is the difference ? I'm guessing 2 pole but I'd like to be reassured that's the way to go.



    2 pole:

    Absolutely !

    I was all set for a testing day tomorrow - had the wife and kids all setup to be out of the house but that's blown now.
    Oh well, I'll get the PX-2 setup instead so that next week I can compare vinyl and digital with the PSS.

    Should be fun...

    Unbelievable!

    You have in your hands a real professional amplifier, not something looking just nice made in China with shiny knobs and plugs!

    When you are in the studio recording area, only balanced XLR plugs are used with Speakon connectors.

    As we are an international company, we also do have a web site where you will find all what you need, English written:

    How to wire a Speakon plug: http://www.pssaudio.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=39

    How to wire an XLR plug: http://www.pssaudio.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=38

    Where can I get technical information: http://www.pssaudio.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=40

    What about contacting the creator of the amp?

    Just unbelievable…

    Nota Bene: Please use high quality cords, not a junky adaptor converting an RCA jack to an unbalanced XLR as you will loose almost all the information carried in the input wires.

    PSS plays music, not making noise as almost power amps down here.

    Whoa....easy there....

    Hey..umm...you could maybe wait until *after* I review the amp to tell me what you really think ? I don't believe I criticized the amp at any given point, and if I have already some how offended you I hope that you will be able to forgive me. Let me start over...

    I am hoping to test this amp in a home environment, not a studio. It is of course my fault for not asking about connectivity before I signed up to test. But, things being what they are now I would still like to at least hear it before I have to pay to ship it to someone else.


    On the issue of cables, I would put the burden of proper connectivity on the amp's creator and owner. If you're saying (and you may be, I'm not clear on that) that you would prefer the amp not to be used in a home/RCA environment because you feel too much info will be somehow "lost" in the connection from XLR/RCA, then I'll respect your wishes and keep my opinions to myself.

    I am, however going to wait for my $5 PE connectors and hook your amp up and at least hear it before it leaves.

    And by the way smart ass - when I post a picture of this delicate (and shiny) little piece on top of the Yamaha you can tell me which one looks "something looking just nice made in China with shiny knobs and plugs!".

    Let's play nice please until I've at least had a chance to audition the amp, ok ?

    I didn't bother to hunt down all the adapters I would have needed to give the amp a try. You get an A in my book for bothering.

    You are totally and completely misunderstood!

    Last July, when I sent the amp to the states, I opened a thread and posted everything about the amplifier and pictures of it.

    One can see that there are neither binding posts nor RCA plugs!

    That is why I do not understand your surprise discovering how the amplifier looks like! There is a fan on this amp and it may hurt you for a home use too …

    That is why I wrote unbelievable!

    I know that you are in a home configuration and you only have bananas and RCA jacks.

    Instead asking, either the creator (my self) or browsing our web site how the amp must be connected, you just ask here about it while nobody knows unless the two who tried out the amp!

    This is also quite unbelievable for me. Why asking the saints when god can answer you?

    Please do not use any adaptor, as the result will be dramatically bad. Use a ready made cable, at one end an RCA jack and at the other end an XLR plug!

    This is just an advice.

    About Yamaha, as all Far East amplifier makers, they cannot understand, as they have not the same culture as ours (as we cannot understand their standards), what kind of sound we are looking for. That is why all those amplifiers sound very clinical, with no soul.

    Those are just shiny (China) amps with nice looking knobs and sockets!
