High-Quality Low-Volume Amp

Postby kirbyjwilson » 18 Apr 2018, 00:23

I'm looking for a high-quality low-volume amp (home office) for a Nord Stage 3 Compact. I suppose it will need a minimum of two inputs so I can hear it in stereo. Any recommendations? Thanks.

I use a pair of Mackie CR3’s as computer monitors, and occasionally plug my instruments into it. I think they sound very nice and are pretty affordable.

The 3’s are the smallest in the but have nice bass response and are a great size for a desktop. There is a 1/8” aux input right in the front, so all you’d need is a Y adaptor type of audio cable or you can use the headphone output on the Stage.

Thanks, I'll look into the Mackie CR3s. I'm also looking at the Behringer Ultratone KT108.

I use a pair of JBL LSR 305 studio monitors. I'm extremely happy with their sound, the 5" woofer gives you enough low end to really enjoy the whole frequency range without taking up too much space. But maybe a 3" solution as proposed above could work. I find the sound coming out of these studio monitors better than anything I've experienced from a keyboard amp.
