This is my vinyl ripping studio. The speakers are in an "aktiv" configuration. There are crossover cards in the amps and the internal crossovers in the speakers have been bypassed. The sound is lush, clear and open. The preamp even sounds better after the change.
I found that the LK 140 has a pair of output devices per channel. A lot of people say that the LK 140 sounds better than the LK 85. It is just from them having more power and slam? Does the LK140 show more micro dynamics?
