Have you tried contacting your dealer and/or Parasound for assistance?

Not yet. I just ran the setup using HT for the first time late last night. Figure I post here first.

Got the answer straight from Parasound. P5 HT bypass works (turned off) when using unbalanced connection.

Now I am trying to find out how I can integrated the devices to turn on/off with P5/A21/AVR. I can imagine my wife forgetting to turn some stuff off. So far the audio sensing to turn device on doesn't work too well and based on readings here.

I had a UsP-1 and and xpa-5 from emotiva I was using and when I hooked up the parasound p5 to the emotiva - what a difference ! Then I hooked up the a21 and the diffence was minor. So I agree, the preamp is more important.
Btw, I have precious little space in the back of the cabinet where my a21 sits. It's attached via xlr. Any chance of bending a connection in the back of the a21 or is it sturdy?

Out of curiousity, did you try hooking up the A21 to the USP-1? I've heard that the USP-1 can be on the bright side, what are your impressions?
