I've noticed in some photographs of the latest Arcam pre-amps that the volume control has a large numerical display option and I do wish the AV8 could have the same. The problem is that from my seating position the numerical display of volume is just not readable it is too small. The bar I don't find terribly helpful at all, in fact the point of it escapes me. I'm sure Arcam wouldn't add this just for me but how do other users feel? Would you like the option of the large numeric volume display? Presumably they already have the code to do this so you never know, it may be just about possible if a number of users wanted it. What do you all think? Cheers, Bob.
