All my Pioneer Elites (74, 82, 94, and SC07) have a Digital Safety setting (D.Safety, off, 1, 2 on the SC's). In each case the default setting is OFF but there is no explanation as to what it does if you turn it on, except the manual says that some features may not be available (that's it, no other info).

Does anyone know what the Digital Safety setting does? (and what features are no longer available?)

{I asked this in the SC-05/07 thread but it applies to many generations of Pioneers that I own so I thought I would make it a general query.}

Minor follow up. I called Pioneer support to ask them and the guy had no idea. He just told me it protected the system, he did not know the difference between D.Safety 1 and 2, he did not know what features were disabled (did not know the default was OFF). He did not know if it was applying different shutdown criteria or signal processing to reduce load...

I'll try the email route with them, perhaps that will get the query routed to the right person. (somebody must know, the feature is on many generations of Pioneer receivers, always defaulted to OFF)

Your question reminds me of many computer manuals I have read. You come across some setting in the program like 'vertex stabilization', and look it up in the manual.

Of course, it says something like 'Adjusts the stability of vertexes' and nothing else.

The question is being bumped up the support chain (into engineering).

Hopefully someone there will know.
