View Full Version : Low volume - Yes I've read the archive :)

I know that Slim Devices claim that people have complained that the analogue
outputs have caused clipping on their particular amps but the fact that this
appears to be a fairly common problem makes me think these people were
connecting the line out to a microphone input or worse the phono input on
their amps and NOT a true line level input meant for a CD, Tuner, Aux etc

I really cant see how the line out from the SB could possibly cause clipping
if its connected to line level inputs on a 'normal' amplifier, not going by
what I've experienced so far anyway.

Anyone here experienced clipping on their AMPs when using the line out from
the Squeezebox ?
