Marshall Stanmore (2 or 3) as a (small) frfr speaker for my Helix? (NOT the main use...)

Hi all,

 

I'm going to buy a Marshall Stanmore 2 (or 3 if I can get my hands on one when it comes out in a few days).

Its main use will (obviously...?) be as a Bluetooth speaker for my living room and/or home office. I might even connect my TV now and then.

 

I have a Helix LT and I saw a video on YouTube: someone connecting a Stanmore 2 speaker to his Mooer pedalboard (be it through an audio interface + laptop/pc).

 

 

To be clear: I know a Powercab would be WAAAAAAAY better as a speaker connected to my Helix. And I'm not really looking for an frfr speaker for my Helix: I'm fine using my headphones. But this video got me wondering, just playing with the idea here, nothing more, nothing less - if it's possible - it got me wondering whether I could connect my Helix to the Stanmore by going out from the Helix headphones output to the AUX 3.5 mm jack input of the Stanmore 2... (Output impedance from the Helix is 12 Ohms, but I haven't been able to find the load impedance of the Stanmore...). Using a 6.35 mm to 3.5 mm jack cable of course. Would it work?

Or would I have to make the connection like the guy in the YouTube video? I.e.: guitar to helix, helix to audio interface, audio interface to PC, PC (headphones output) to Marshall Stanmore 2?

 

I'll buy the Marshall Stanmore 2 anyway. Again, mainly as a speaker for my living, to play music from my phone/tablets...

I was just playing with the idea of connecting my guitar to it now and then if it's possible.

 

Anyone had the same or a similar idea and tried it?

 

Cheers!

It should work fine, I use a Bose Soundlink Mini connected to my Helix and it sounds great at home

with the Stanmore I’d use the Helix line outs to the stereo rca in and keep it at line level

Cheers man, I'll try that! Hope to get my hands on the newest, the Stanmore 3 in a few days/weeks...

Another concurring experience here, as I often will use my Yamaha THR10C as a Stereo FRFR Powered Cab (battery powered) with my Helix Floor and HX Stomp with great results. I simply connect to the Yamaha's Aux In.
