Good to hear that you will be evaluating this unit. I am sure I speak for everyone when I say I am looking forward to your usual thorough examination of the unit.

Yes, thank you, Igor. It is good to see an Engineer confirm this. I think I know who doesn’t seem to understand the function of the knob on the subwoofer amp, and it isn't me ;)

Reading the second half of your last sentence, I think the last thing we need is your input to Ralph's reviews - no offense.

OK thanks. So in my case, I'd need to make sure that the AVR output doesn't exceed 2V at 0Db on the MV? This would be for all channels not just the sub as the DDRC-88A will be EQing 8 channels...

I guess it depends what it will cost. As more channels would need more physical connections, and physical stuff always costs, you could be right.

You are welcome. Always use the AVR trims to make changes to bass level - it is easier then to go back to a known setting if you need to. Unless your sub has a digital volume readout, as some do, it...

I think you are referring to the sub trim level in the AVR.

If so - that is fine. The ±3.5dB thing is just a rough guide. My sub trim comes in at -6dB for example and I am happy with it. The basic...

Yes - if your Audyssey cal sets the sub trim higher than -4.5dB, you would need to raise the gain on the sub itself and then re-run Audyssey until it sets a sub trim of -4.5dB.

If you measure...

Sure - I meant that 1.8v was what his unit is supposed to deliver if the MV is at 0dB (I think).
