Hi!

I'm thinking of buying a Pro-Ject preamp with a 12v trigger power connector. Is it possible, with the preamp or without it, to remotely power on the active speakers?

Also, what if i used an extension cord which has a master socket that controls the power of the other sockets by sensing if the device connected to the master socket is on? Meaning that the Pro-Ject preamp would be connected to the master socket, and the 8240a:s (with their own power switches turned on) to the slave sockets. When i would turn the preamp on, the extension cord would start feeding current to the speakers. Would this harm the speakers?

What say you, wise men/women?

Thanx in advance, Juha

Hi Juha,

There are a few Genelec models with 12V trigger option, but unfortunately 8240A doesn't have that option.

The option of having a master/slave sockets has been used quite widely with Genelecs without any problems. I would suggest this option.
