I have also used 6 transformers on the output, or my my current unit that has 4 transformers and 2 stock outputs. No problems at all with levels, I get 2V RMS I think.

Scott, how are you controlling overall volume?

B.
I am afraid there are no tests or suchlike for this unit. I bought it blind, hoping it will work. Luckily it does. Quiet and noise-free..

With great difficulty at the moment! Waiting on the 6 gang pot I have on order. Just experimenting with the digital input, will revert to analogue for the time being. I'm getting better input level with the digital so will go that way ultimately, also means a couple less conversions so must be the optimum way

digital input going red, is this an issue when going from AES3 to spdif? I can not hear any clipping though. Some black tape doing the job well

On digital signals the input VU meters should see red from time to time. As long as the digital signal itself isn't clipped, the DCX input will not be.

I presume all it means is that the input from the CD player is approaching 16 1's or 24 after upsampling? In the end it is what it is I can't see there being any advantage to attenuating the digital input?

The output meters shouldn't be as high, if you have the crossover turned on. Think about how crossovers work.

Yes, it's ok, I edited post above, I forgot I'd attenuated the input, output meters are up where they should be, I've taken xover into account, I'm not that daft, haha. My 6 gang pot has just this minute arrived
