UNSUNG FEATURE OF MINI TORII - OUTPUT JACKS
08/04/12 at 14:21:24
 
I recalled that the MINI TORII has the output jacks to feed the signal, along with the amp's sound signature. So I connected the outputs to the input of my CSP2+. Strangely, it sounds a lot better than the CD player connected directly to the CSP2+.

Hi, Jim

I'm not fully understanding the output function. If you want to drive the CSP2 or another amp, do the speakers need to stay connected to the MINI?

Normally, I wouldn't expect you could power up an amp without a speaker load.

Regards,
Hank

I've always kept the speakers connected. I turned down the volume controls nearly all the way and let the CSP2+ handle the amplification for the headphones. The output jacks are designed to drive another amp or something else, with the speakers connected.

The line level output is taken off the opt via a dropping resistor.  It's an extremely useful feature, and one I have added in the past with other amplifiers.  I used it from day one to drive a subwoofer amp.
