XVR1’s have been created over a period of several years for our own loudspeaker design efforts, and it is the design that ultimately performed with the most flexibility and quality, and gave us the most satisfaction with the end result.
As complex as this two chassis device is (and it is complex) it actually operates under a very simple premise when trying to determine the desired settings: The end user knows where they want to go, so they’ll also know when they get there. Most of the settings are established internally. There are no settings shown on the faceplate of the control unit, only four knobs to control the levels for the left (L) and right (R) low frequencies and left (L) and right (R) high frequencies. On the rear of the control unit are the corresponding balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) input connectors and a set of output connectors. On the front of both the control unit and power supply are cobalt blue LED power indicators. The control unit is connected to the power supply via a 25-pin ribbon cable. Construction of both chassis is magnificent, of course.
