Hi!

I was wondering if you have any experience running a cd player with volume-adjustment directly into the x-amps?
Do you recomend using a pre-amp, or is this just as good a solution?

I now am the proud owner of a x250 and a x1

Best regards,

Thank you for your answer Mr.Pass.

I am considering the Wadia cd player, and I don't intend to use any other sources than cd.

But do you think it will sound equally good without the x1 pre, or is it possible that the x1 will make it even better together with the Wadia?

Best regards,

The attenuator circuit of most cd players are no good! They kill the dynamics of the music.
I would use the X1 preamp anytime, and leave the CD player at full throttle;) If I just had some PASS gear:eek:
