There is nothing to LOL at. Cable marketing is nothing but BS and FUD to hide the fact its a scam.

It is still a db scale with one db increment. It just has 1 db at the beginning of the scale instead of 0db somewhere around clipping.

Oh, I see. Didn't notice the difference. 1.4V sensitivity should be fine. I was just worried about audible hiss from the tweeters. Someone on an other forum commented that he had some hiss but I had...

Thanks. It does say in the manual that there is a setting for 0.77v sensitivity. I assume that setting will increase the noise floor a bit? The 2040 delivers 1.4v at 0db MV with trims at 0db, EQ off...

What amp is it?

On my 2040 the difference between RCA line out and speaker level is 29db, meaning connecting a 29db gain external amp will produce the same voltage as the internal amps.

Exactly. Premature firmware releases only serve to make the customers into paying beta testers. Much better to wait and get a release that is hopefully ready for prime time.
