    ... I want to use my Peavey Mark VIII head as a pre-amp(temporarily) for a passive AEB - will it hurt anything to run this amp(to make use of the pre-amp and DI outlet) without a cab hooked up to it??? I'm relatively sure a tube amp can be damaged that way, but don't know if it would hurt a solid state amp any... Thanks,

  2. hmm, if it damages it that is news to me...

    I use my eden wt400 (tube pre) as a DI, and a headphone amp and havn't experiened problems... but i could not tell you for sure.
     
  3. With SS amps it doesnt, it does with tube amps (amps with a tube power section at least)

    That's pretty much what I thought - thanks for the reassurances, though...
