John,Questions for you. If the multichannel single ended inputs are chosen (let's say with an Oppo BDP 95 as a source) are both the multichannel XLR outputs and single ended RCA outputs useable at the same time? Or must one choose either balanced or single ended outputs? Is the +/- trim available for EACH output separately?Thanks,Anand.
Excellent question, Anand! My guess is unbalanced source = unbalanced output only, balanced source = balanced and unbalanced output.
John, sorry if you answered this already...what is channel trim range in dB?
So trim steps are .5 dB...great!What is dB range for trim function? For instance, on my current preamp trim range is +/- 10dB. Also, on my current preamp, whatever channel is boosted, overall gain is cut by the same magnitude. For instance, if I boost C Ch +10 dB, the preamp looses 10dB of global gain vs. trim set flat or cut. Same with MCP-18?
To be precise, the UNITY Volume trim steps are .5db, from 0db to 99db.The individual channel trim steps are 1db and have a range of + 20db or - 20db
Are the balanced outputs buffered from the un-balanced outputs? Don't want to have connecting an RCA output messing up the balanced output.
: if, for instance, one channel is trimmed +"X" dB, is global gain decreased by the same "X" dB? For instance, one channel trimmed +10 dB = maximum global gain 99 dB - 10 dB = 89 dB.
Unity gain is at #85, maximum gain is 15dB. Therefore, if Center channel is trimmed +10dB, then at #90, the Center channel will plateau while the other channels' volume goes up. i.e. At #92, Center has only +8dB gain relative to other channels.
If I understand this correctly, the trim is not fixed. IOW, in the example, trim is +15 dB (that's a huge figure, admittedly, and only in the case of wildly different amp and/or speaker sensitivity) below 85dB global gain, but then the trim diminishes past 85 dB. It seems like it would make more sense for the preamp to stop at 85 dB rather than change the trim automatically.
I would like to apply the 20% discount, as I am a current owner of the AVP-17.
Looks like we will have a B-STOCK MCP-18 shortly.If anyone is interested PM me.
