Blue display is nice when you are doing the adjustment, but say if you are watching a movie via then it may not be so nice. Solution? Maybe using something simple to code like arduino to control the backlight. Say if you hit any button on the front panel it lid up the blue backlight for x secs. I think that would work the best in this situation.

Um, electrical tape?

Just saying.... Makes LED's disappear instantaneously...

Reminds me of an older Saturday Night sketch. It was about middle age man. The line I remember is the difference between middle ages man and old aged man is that middle aged man knows how to stop that 12:00 flashing on the VHS. Duct Tape. layers of Duct Tape.

I suppose electrical tape will do the trick. But it's a bit... hmm.. ghetto? smile

Since I am going to add 12V triggering into this unit anyway, make sense to incorporate auto dim backlight since it's easy to program that in since the Arduino board have those input/output built-in. I am most likely going to end up uing 8Mhz ATMEGA 328P as it consumes about 65mW which is perfect for my application.

As you are adding in a 12V trigger.. I an wondering if you can give me some info about that implementation.

Is the 12V DC present all the time that the amp needs to be powered on, an when the 12V cuts, the amp powers down to it's standby state?

I am wondering as cooling is a big problem for my receiver. I was thinking as a 80mm computer fan doens't really pull that much power. Would you be able to run the 12v fan off one of those triggers? If it was getting the 12v constant when the receiver is powered on, then you could easily use it to add in a small fan to the case to cool down the unit.

Just thinking out loud for myself.

Hi Matt,

There are several ways we can achieve this.

a) constant 12V feeding to power on the amp and when the 12V is no longer presented, it shuts off the amp.

b) attached a mic and set a voice command to turn on the amp. I know it's a bit cheesy but heck it's hand free operation and for that I approve!!

See sample video
www.youtube.com/watch?v=SThR-jyoplk#t=203

As for the 12V, think of it like you are using a 120V to 12V adaptor inside of the amp. (I am using RS-15-12 http://www.meanwell.com/search/RS-15/RS-15-spec.pdf) You are free to select the proper size adaptor (1A,2A...etc) to power off your fan or whatever you need that require 12V to operate.

Hopefully this answers your question.

It is 10lbs the Adage is 58, so I think they serve 2 entirely different marketplaces. Still in reality that for most hearing we rarely surpass even a few.

They customize the DSP for the center that it will be used with. In other words, if you ordered one for your LFRs and your VP180, the DSP would be built for the LFRs and the VP180. If someone ordered one for their M80s and a VP160, it would be built for those.
