    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I'm sure there are others who are dealing with the same issue. But I didn't want the EP2500 and DCX2496 on all the time. They don't have triggers on them, so there's no simple way to just make them turn on and off with your receiver or processor. But if you're like me and don't want them to be...

I can not find any documentation...
