  1. From the manual: “Input Selector Switch 5 A toggle switch in the rear panel selects the type of input signal to use. Select the correct inputs to use with this flip switch. NOTE: You should choose only one method of analog connection from a source component to the amplifier. Do not connect both the RCA and XLR outputs of a source component to the same amplifier at the same time.“ This indicates that maybe you can't. Perhaps two different sources would be OK? I haven’t been game to try with my RB1552 mkII.
  2. Is the Sub 6 much different to the 18s from their pro line?
  3. Still on the hunt for a black Cambridge CXN...
  4. I'm still looking...

  6. Item: Cambridge CXN V1 or V2 Price Range: Negotiable depending on model Item Condition: Excellent used condition Extra Info: Looking for a black unit to match my CXA80 and CXC. Thanks.
  7. Very flexible receiver with integrated network streamer (MusicCast, DNLA, AirPlay). GLWS
  8. My guess is Richter Oracles from about 1990.
  9. Have a read of this https://www.audioholics.com/audio-amplifier/impedance-selector-switch-1
  10. I've found the Sony Netflix app to be a bit flakey (sometimes freezing at 25% or dropping out at the start of playing a show). Usually I just switch to an attached Chromecast Ultra when the app has issues. However, since finally getting a decent internet connection the app has been operating fine.🤞
  11. Factory settings reset: https://usa.yamaha.com/support/faq/audio_visual/9346.html
  12. Personally, I don't feel that my contribution has been welcomed at all and I will not be revisiting this thread.
  13. Only the first paragraph in quotation marks is from Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipping_(audio) I wrote the rest. I chose not to make a sweeping statement about an entire class of audio product. To me BS is an outright lie. Figures quoted in this manner are not lies, but I agree they are designed to portray the product in a favourable light to influence the uninformed. I'm not sure what your point is here.
  14. From Wikipedia: "When an amplifier is pushed to create a signal with more power than its power supply can produce, it will amplify the signal only up to its maximum capacity, at which point the signal can be amplified no further. As the signal simply "cuts" or "clips" at the maximum capacity of the amplifier, the signal is said to be "clipping". The extra signal which is beyond the capability of the amplifier is simply cut off, resulting in a sine wave becoming a distorted square-wave-type waveform. Amplifiers have voltage, current and thermal limits. Clipping may occur due to
  15. I'm not sure what you mean by smart re-allocate power. The limiting factor is usually the amps power supply. Each channel draws what it needs from the power supply. If some channels are not operating that leaves more power supply capacity for those that are. All AVRs using a single power supply will produce significantly more power per channel into 2 channels than 5 or 7 or 9.
  16. The specs given by Yamaha for the RX-V3073 are pretty clear Rated Output Power (20Hz-20kHz, 2ch driven) 150W (8ohms, 0.06% THD) Those for the Powernode are somewhat vague 60 Watts x 2 into 8 ohms i.e no frequency range or distortion level given. The Yamaha will definitely deliver significantly more power in stereo mode and plenty to drive Dynaudio Emit 20.
  17. The LSX has a hi-pass filter adjustable from 50-120 Hz for use with subs. Also, though I've seen pictures of damaged LS50 base drivers which have been overdriven, but I'm pretty sure the active LS50W and LSX use DSP to prevent this.
  18. Surely this wouldn't be a problem if the bass was filtered off and sent to the subwoofer(s).
