How does it sound? Like it's not there. Utterly transparent. An unmangled pristine analog signal.
Hi Jim,

It appears, you may be talking about the MCP-18 (Multi-channel Preamp) which is all analog, rather than the AVP-18, which is an all digital Preamp Processor.

Your assessment it right on, it is an exceptional unit.

Regards,

Yes, my bad--I had googled for avsforum MCP-18 and it brought me here. I don't see a separate avsforum thread for the MCP-18. Maybe someone can start one.

Back after 2.5 years with a question. I bought two MCP-18s (liked the first one so much, figured I'd stock up). Turns out to have been a good idea, because NuForce was then bought. Now I have a problem: The one complaint about the MCP-18 is that it comes with a flimsy little remote, and now the first of the two remotes is wearing out. Before the second remote dies, I want to program the codes into a universal remote. But the codes don't seem to be documented anywhere. Logitech doesn't have them. The NuForce manual doesn't refer to the remote at all. There is an RS-232 manual. I could probably program an RS-232 endpoint to receive different codes from a remote and map them, but I'd rather just program a remote with the original codes. Is there a way to do that? Do learning remotes, with IR receivers built in, actually work?
