  1. Power Supply Specs?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I have a RLC-1E remote line controller that needs a 12V power supply. It also says [email protected] I’m not sure why they would sell it without the power supply, but they did. Anyway, if I find a power supply on eBay that matches those specs and has the right connector, can I be confident it will work?

  10. MCACC - Specs

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I got the following information from Pioneer. What is disappointing to me, is that the 9 band equalizer is graphic, not parametric. When I did these adjustments manually, a graphic equalizer was useful, but when I could look at the frequency response on an oscilloscope, there were some sharp...

    I am looking at buying the XPA -5 barely used from an individual, and looking at the specs it says S/[email protected] and at .1percent [email protected]/1meter.
