When using the Trigger, the EP500 does not always wake up properly. The LED on the back switches from red to green however the sub output level is severely reduced. In other words it is working but at say 20% volume. The only way to recover is to cycle the power on the EP500.
The issue is intermittent and the last test I did I found that the issue occurred after 8 days with an average of 25 power cycles (i.e. turning on the home theater).
I have tried with two Denon receivers and an external Emotiva trigger box.
It's not a big deal as the idle power draw is real low (~10 watts) but it would be nice if it worked. Incidentally, I use the trigger on my ADA1000 without problems.
For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert.
