Is the HT-5 's speaker muted when using the line-out ? (Headphone or Direct to console)

Hi,

The answer is YES. When using this output, the speaker connected is muted. This is not perfect when used in a live situation when you want to have your cab as a return but it's done like this.
Aussie suggest using the preamp output of the effect loop to send the signal to a console but there's no speaker simulation so...

Never forget if you have the head disconnected from the cab to plug it back when used without the headphone...

Comments or corrections are welcome !

Emulated out...without a speaker connected?

Post by Ahuja on Sun Sep 11, 2011 10:10 pm

Folks - I haven't found any definitive statement about running a signal through the emulated speaker directly to the board....without having a speaker connected. The common wisdom: Don't do it! But the HT-5 (mine's pre-reverb) seems like such a great studio tool.
Anyone have an idea?
and: anyone come up with a mod for the pre-reverb HT-5 that'll let you run it with the speaker AND the emulated out?

No speaker connected? Don't power up!

=-=--=-=-that's what the folks at Blackstar just told me - a very prompt reply from Tom in customer relations:


" We always recommend you have a load attached when using the emulated output to avoid causing any damage to your amp. "

Case closed?

Maybe not: I'm still trying to find out if it's technically feasible to over-ride the speaker disconnect switch when you're using the emulated speaker connection. Anyone out there accomplished this?
