And you are correct Sir
For the folks that do not know why, I don't use a miniDSP. Here's some of the reasons;
-I do not own a I-pad/tablet or even a smart phone, just a plain PC and a Flip Flop phone.
-Anything computer stuff related for program get me frustrated.
-Do not want to use any other cables, than my XLR for a balance signal.
-While there is one version of miniPSD, that can be use for a balance signal, it require to have some bare wires since it does not accept XLR connections;
miniDSP Balanced 2x4 is an innovative low cost and low power Digital Signal Processor with 2 balanced inputs and 4 balanced outputswww.minidsp.com
The reason, I use the LFE input with my FV18's input. Than rely on my Audyssey XT-32 for calibration, and did added a 3dB boost at 60Hz with the PEQ, with the maximum bandwidth. And did work well for me, before with my previous Marantz AV7702mkII until it lost left front channel. While now, I got a new AV7705 and did a calibration last week. I am back to square one, for experimenting to use or not the PEQ.
On this point, for less background/hiss noise. It is the main reason, I do not want any other cables than my XLR ones from my previous post.I use LINE IN because it has less bandwidth than LFE IN so it has less background noise. Sometimes you can hear "male vocals" coming out of the subwoofer when using LFE IN. That does not happens when using LINE IN. Also, I get better integration with my mains when using LINE IN compared with LFE IN. I have my three subwoofer running through a miniDSP 2x4 HD, though. Regarding damping, that is mostly personal preference. I have always had and still have all my Rythmik subs in High Damping and lower Freq for everything.
That said, good information's for majority of folks using RCA connections.
