    1068 PreOuts?

    I was looking at the back panel of the 1068, and noticed for Preouts, it has C1 and C2. I know these are for the center channels, but does the preout for C2 have a signal present, the same one as the C1? If so, I'd like to do some experimenting Does the same go for the Sub 2 preout?

    On my 1067, Center1 and Center2 output identical signals. I assume it's the same for the 1068. Ditto for Sub1 and Sub2.

          They're the same on my 1098 too.

            Is there a possibility to program the sub1 and sub2 outputs on the 1068/1098 in the future by a firmware update.

            It could be VERY handsome if I could use sub1 when there was digital input, buf if I used a analog stereo input I would like to 'copy' the front left output or the right to sub2 or even better copy left front output to an available output.

            This is very nice if you a one sub for music and one for movies....

              bwa,

              Sorry - the Cirrus DSP chip that the RSP-1068 and RSP-1098 uses “only” has 8 digital outputs (hence the 7.1 sound or 5.1 plus a 2 channel zone 2). The duplicated sub and centre channels are mastered off the same digital out on the Cirrus chip after the D/A conversion (hence no independent controls). They are there because some people like a centre speaker above and below the screen to get an acoustical "behind the screen effect" and of course for those (like me )that want two subs - but right near each other (mostly the best since they don't cancel each other out).

              There is a "wish list" request for this under the hardware upgrade / new hardware area - but this would require a new model (the very latest "top of the line" cirrus DSP does 16 channels) so I’d be thinking 2 years plus. Right now you need something high end like the Lexicon MC-12 (12 channels) or the Parasound C1 or C2 to get more than 8 active channels.

                Ok, now I have studied the manual.

                I can see that there is a analog crossover filter that can be used on the external input, it's set to 100 Hz. How is the possibility to change this frequence ?

                I also see that the zone 2 output could be used, how is the ability to copy the external input to the zone 2 out and apply the same volumesettings as the external ?

                  bwa,

                  Re your queries:
                  • The bass management frequency on the analogue inputs is fixed a 100 Hz but can be turned off. There is no option for altering the frequency of this. There is a wish list request asking for this - but I have been "led to understand" that this requires a hardware upgrade and we should think "new model".
                  • However you can send any analog input (including 2 channels of the multi, to Zone 2 and control this volume separately from Zone 1. If you wanted to make the volume the same as for zone 1 you could but this would (as far as I know) need to be done separately since each volume is managed independently. The Zone 2 operation (which I no longer use) is easier to use that to read about - just try it and you will see.


                  I hope this makes sense.

                    That makes sense, it migth mean that a syncronized zone 2 volumecontrol should be able to implement as a software update ?

                    If so I would order one item immediately
