question

Will the use of a quality Y-Splitter cable (1/8 male to twin females) greatly affect the preamp's output quality & efficiency to each headphone? Can the slight signal level loss be well compensated just by raising the volume control?
Asked by: Wissam S.
If you are using a quality cable designed for splitting headphones it should be wired correctly and the main concern would be signal loss. This can be compensated for with volume. You would want to ensure the headphones impedances are still within the capabilities of the unit.

question

Can I connect to an audio mixer from the groove's headphone output? And will it maintain the high quality sound?
Asked by: David P.
Yes you can although it is an 8th inch stereo out, however it sounds fantastic and functions fine as a line level out. So if the 8th inch connector doesn't bother you go for it.
