They only accept mic-level input signals, which are extremely low.

Using nothing at all, if possible. These things add noise to the system (at least if youíre using them for the main channels), and thereís a good chance you donít even need it. Iíd suggest reviewing Part 7 of my gain structure article (you can find the link in my signature). Iím sure youíre looking for an inexpensive solution, so if you really want/need one I suggest finding a used S-Convert. The only alternatives Iíve come across cost in the $200 range.

Wayne

Is that the output voltage you actually measured, or what Pioneer specs? Often the manufacturer’s figures are grossly under-rated.

The ART suffers from a mild low freq roll-out , so it might not be what you want for a subwoofer. See here. I think somewhere on this Forum there’s a thread about modifying it, if you’re brave enough to tackle that.

That said, it’s down only 5 dB or so at 20 Hz. Unless your sub digs below 10 Hz, that could easily be fixed with an equalizer.

I opened up my s-convert and many bad caps including ones in the power supply .I replaced them and the s-convert works great .
So guys if you have the s-convert open it up and check your caps .

cdx,

How did you go about checking the caps? My S-Convert has one channel that is much noisier than the other.
