Moreplay Newbie questions
« on: March 24, 2021, 11:43:12 AM »
Hi all,

Just finished my Moreplay. Really enjoyed the experience and sound. It sure warms up my solid state system.


A few questions...
- Is it safe/advisable to leave the pre-amp on while not using it?
- What are some good, mid price range, RCA cables available? I don't want to use $600. cables on a $600. system.


Currently..
- Moreplay pre-amp
- Yamaha SS amp
- Old donated Axiom speakers
- Computer or phone for source.

This set up actually sounds good, but obviously upgrades are in the que...

Thanks,
Erick

Yes, you can leave it on. Tubes will last longer if you turn it off. It will usually take about 20 minutes to warm up and sound its best.
Blue Jeans Cable makes great affordable cables.

20 minutes to warm up makes sense. that was how long is took to hit its stride.

Thanks

@debk,
Thanks. This was my first build since I was a kid. Definitely not my last. I am mapping out a system in my head now. I am sure it will change along the way...

I like your take on the base.

Ha - Same can be said about motorcycles. Thanks for noticing the base. 5 minutes on the router gave it some shadow lines.
