That has to be possible if you don’t want to use the extra bells and whistles.
Or just figure out what the signal wires are on the Hypertac connector and take a balanced output from there, whatever, it’s all definitely possible. Plus there’s loads of phono preamps about that offer balanced outputs too, if that’s what’s needed.
These are definitely a bit "boingy" in the spring department, but as Hugh says, not a problem in your living room.
You mention the LS5/8, but what amplifier are you using?
Hello and thanks for the reassurance (which one needs at 2.200 UKP ! ) . As you might know the rogers Ls 5/8 come with the Quads 405 (bi amplified) , this is the standard BBC modification.
£2,200 is a substantial amount to pay for a turntable, this BBC job looks great, and you have to bare that in mind, but, for that type,of money you could have got something amazing from say, Project, or Michell, that would be at least as good, but probably a lot better than this.
I hope this works out for you, I’d be tempted for sure, I have a KEF Quad 405 powered system, and I’m looking for a turntable, an EMT would be great, but I’m not holding out any hope, I’ll probably end up with a Project, or a Michell.
