Hi there,

I have just bought an ADA B200 to use it with my ADA MP-1. Since this is my new rig (I used to play with combos) I have some dumb questions.

Should I have the power amp volume control set to max and control it with the preamp, or should I do the opposite?

Best Regards,

Roberto Renner

Hey Roberto, (Should I have the power amp volume control set to max and control it with the preamp) Yes and that will give you maximum headroom. That said, in reality, the B200s is a very loud amp  >:D and in my extensive experience with Mp1/2 through B200s, I never got past 3/4 (3 O'clock) on it's vol controls. Remebering that if you open the amp up full (and what you would typically do with PA amps etc), you experience it's quoted noise ratio (and B200s is pretty good IIRC). I've found it's more about the intensity (and the neighbors). But fundamentally you want to crank the power amp and adjust at preamp.
