  • zero-feedback, fully-balanced discrete circuitry
  • 66 step volume control, each of 1.0 dB
  • Four inputs: two balanced, two single-ended
  • Proprietary volume control with FET switches & metal film resistors
  • Ayre Conditioner Power-Line RFI Filter
  • Control microprocessor is turned off except when executing a command
  • Input selector also switches ground connection, so that all source components are completely disconnected except for the one selected
  • “Theater” mode for use with surround-sound processor is assignable to any input, allowing use with balanced or single-ended processors
