I have a more/less rectangular room, with the room being wider than deep. Have my subwoofer against the wall that is a 9 o'clock position from the listening area. Aesthetically, it would look better in a little nook I have in the corner between an ikea wall-unit and 2 walls (about 6-8 feet to the right from where it is now). My concern with this is that it would "just fit" in this little corner with only 1 side open and drastically change the sound. The room is small...
Does anyone know where to find the changelog for today's firmware update?
I had an epiphany last night... I wish I had thought of it from the get-go... I have a Belkin PF60 power conditioner with a 12v trigger... so i wired the marantz to the power conditioner and set 1 bank of outlets to be switched, plugged the 24v ac adapter into the switched bank and now it works perfectly. Hopefully someone else can learn from my mistake. As far as the trigger on the marantz goes... does anyone have any idea if there is a fuse i can replace or did i...
Thank you for the explanation... Looks like I have a lot to learn about electricity.
by contact closure... Do you mean a constant output vs a pulse? I believe the Marantz gives a constant output... I had the amp on for hours yesterday with the 24v step-up from the trigger, if it was a pulse it never would have stayed on.
Here are 2 threads that led me to believe the AMX unit is what I needed... please let me know if i'm wrong (which is totally possible): http://www.htguide.com/forum/showthread.php?32402-12-volt-trigger-outlet http://www.avsforum.com/t/1454978/are-there-any-simple-switched-power-outlets-that-work-with-a-12v-trigger-for-sub-woofer
well, I definitely agree I don't know enough about this, which is why i started this thread.help me understand... the pre/pro outputs 12v 150ma, even if the current was less than the 125ma expected by the amp, how would that damage the trigger output? I'm not familiar with the term "inrush current". In my experience with this amp, when there's not enough current, it won't turn on, which wasn't the case here.It's a Crestron cnampx-7x200... the way i've been using it is...
I think I found a reasonable solution. I got an AMX PC-1 off ebay... i'll just use a 24v wall wart with that. should do the trick and not risk my other trigger.
I ended up using this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0085T97PW/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It worked fine at first... but now the DC trigger doesn't seem to work. if i plug it into the other DC trigger it works. I'm wondering if i blew a fuse or damaged the 12v trigger? it's a marrantz av8801... is there a fuse or something for the trigger? I don't see how this could have damaged the unit... but i'm afraid to use the other trigger incase it damages...
would you split them? If so, how much for the AV8801? I am local.
