    I have a set of Aego 2 sub-sat speakers with an additional sat for the centre channel

    My amp does not have pre-outs so I used the included speaker level to line level adapter to connect it to the line level inputs on the Aego (the Aego does not have a hi level input)

    I was disappointed with the sound as there was noticable distortion on the output.

    Are there any other companies who make a speaker to line adapter that may give me better results? Or is connecting the amp and sub in this way always likely to give bad results

    Can i say that in my experience these sort of things are the domain of car audio.
    I have no doubt in my mind that you were dissapointed with the results.
    I am not aware nor have ever seen "audiophile" labelled equivalents.

    Thanks for the reply

    I have found a couple of places that stock an equivalent device but I may well be throwing good money after bad I feel.

    CPC.co.uk do one that looks a better quality one than that suppled with the Aego but at £40 I think I might be better off putting the money towards an amp with pre-outs

    Art.

    I would concur wholeheartedly with your "new amp" train of thought.

    Steve.
