    It looks like the coax input from my tv?? :help: :confused: :confused:
     
  2. Looks like a RCA input... maybe. For a male plug like this:

    Looking at the input, not output.
     
  5. If you currently have a standard 1/4" plug, you just need one of these little guys:

    and you'll be good to go.

    So is it for sure an RCA input? and all i need is a 1/4' to rca adapter?
     
  7. Can't tell for sure from the picture. Unplug one of the RCA cables from your TV & see if it fits... :D

    This confused me for a while, too, until I picked up my 300M. I think that most of the 300M's actually shipped with the 1/4" inputs, but if you wanted two monoblock tube amps for an audio system, the RCA inputs would be the way to go.

    FYI,

    these all tube power amps are actually for studio monitors, and super duper hifi systems. they also happen to handle bass extremely well.

    thus, you can order a power amp for your hifi using the RCA inputs, or get one w/ 1/4" inputs for monitor/bass use.

    but keep in mind, they only come in "mono" operation. so, you'll need two for true stereo. :eek:

    When would anyone EVER need 300 tube watts for studio monitoring? No, this specific model isn't made just for bass, but rather whatever the situation may be. They are made to use live along with in the studio. I think most of these are not equipped with RCA anyway. Not being a stereo amp doesn't seem to bother anyone anyway; it seems everyone with the intentions of getting one wants (and has the money for) 2 of em :eek:

    you'd be surprised. ;)

    besides, its more for headroom, and low end response.

    again, if you got the moolah...
