Does the SVS box have a level meter, or at least a clipping indicator light? That would be useful to check if your analog input level is too low or too high for the A/D, and you could optimize the level by adjusting the volume control on your upstream receiver/processor.

OK. I should have written: "so maybe the SVS box puts more effort into modelling the location of the higher frequencies than modelling the location of the lower frequencies." As for the small frequency range where the satellite and subwoofer overlap each other, that's where the SVS box might have some difficulty. For example, if your crossover is at 80Hz, the sat is producing 80Hz at -3dB from one location, and simultaneously the sub is producing 80Hz at -3dB from a different location.

Yeah, you should.

When will that be, then?

Well, the Head-Fi show is May 3-4. I'm guessing probably within a month of that they may actually go "live".

And once they're public, I'm sure they'll participate. That's what I've been told.

No other news to report.

Hey... I'm still waiting for my long-promised serial #0001.
