Mine has just turned up in the post . Annoyingly I am going camping all weekend so will not be able to try until Monday at the earliest . Ooh well, gives me something to look forward to while I'm getting rained on in a tent.

Hello Dave D, would it be possible to use the tape loop and then run your tape deck in to a different input or do you record to tape fairly often?
On a separate note I have some more units arriving Tuesday/Wednesday for anyone interested in going for one I can get them back out for Thursday/Friday ready for next weekend.
Dinky Dave, I hope you don't get too wet! It's chucking down here!

I tried the KRK ergo a while back, although it only worked on lower frequencies it was very good. But ultimately the fact that it couldn't run 2 sources made me get rid of it. When I saw this thread I was really hoping this unit would be able to handle turntable in and CDP in at the same time. Sadly not the case (or at least not with my set up) and when the price is doubled it's not an effective solution for me.

You could connect it through your tape loop Ian.

you might need to talk me through that one Jack. what connectors would go where, in/out?

A helpful chap on AOS explained it well.....
If you connect the tape output to the dual core & then the output of the dual core would got to the tape input, you then use the tape monitor button to listen to your music.
Whatever input is selected, say CD, is automatically spat out to the tape output (some amps have a record selector switch). If you then select the tape monitor the CD will have gone through the processor.

Record select for each input? Am I right in thinking you would leave it on the tape input then choose record select on whichever input you wanted to listen to. Does that make sense?

I've read the manual on all the tape controls and still not sure it could do it. Primarily because the manual talks about how you would use it with a tape recorded attached and not what would happen if you fed the signal back into the tape input. However it may well work if the record selector was set to cdp the dspeaker was fed from tape 1 output and the processed signal output was returned to line 3 input and line 3 input was selected as the source on the main input selector. (the record selector works independently of the main input selector)
Does that sound as if it would work?

Well if you want to try and get one going Ian give me a shout, if not happy for you to send it back.

I think you might find that there are 2 tape loops, so that you can connect a cassette recorder & a reel to reel or DAT or minidisc etc. at the same time. It is the nature of tape loops, that whatever is playing is transmitted through the tape out, so either pair of outputs/inputs would suffice for the DSP

That's not the way i read the manual

ok still confused by this, reading up on tape loops. The monitor button (which I have but its not called a monitor button) when selected this plays whatever is going out through in my case taped rec/out. My confusion is that surely this is the signal going INTO the dpeaker ie before it gets processed. If the processed signal is returned to tape play/in, how will the monitor button help?
I don't mean to fill up this thread but just cant get my head round this at the moment. Don't see the point in wasting Jack's time with a demo if I can't even understand what to connect where.

The Accuphase E-305, according to the manual, has pre out/power in phono connectors on the rear.
Otherwise, if you hooked the device up as 'Tape 1' you would set your Input Selector to 'Tape 1' and use the Record Selector to switch inputs. Which looks a bit awkward, but would be sonically preferable.

Yes that's how you would use it.
