Yes, the pre-amp will have circuitry to protect the speakers. That circuitry is commonly known as the "volume control." Don't turn it up too high, and the speakers will be protected. :)

When did he get his doctorate? :confused: And if you're going to quote him as an expert, why do you disagree so strongly with his thoughts on DBT?

I didn't specifically mention "analog parts" inside a DAC chip because I made the poor assumption that you, the reader, already knew that. I mean, how could a digital-to-analog converter work...

They'll never get my subscription as long as they continue to "play both sides" (ie, embracing measurements and voodoo at the same time).

I think he's asking whether they'll make a "Tower 2" and "Horizon 2." And he's hoping they'd use 8" woofers.

Yes, of course, toroids are good for reducing emitted RF. And sure, there might be high frequency processing going on inside the chip. But have you ever seen a case where emitted RF from a power...
