    Hi all,

    Normally I run my 16-46 by high level connections. Stunning performance. So no pressure to change to low level connections.

    But I thought I'd see what the low level connections would do. I don't have a low level source from my Naim amps. So I plugged a ten metre phono cable into the "Sub-out" socket of my Nad T533 DVDP as an experiment. I bunged on 'Saving Private Ryan' at the amo/bridge scene to be sure of some extended bass welly.

    Underwhelming is a good word. I could turn the gain on the SVS up to full without shaking anything much. On high level I can never go much past 12 o'clock without reaching a seriously loud 110dB @ VLF on the sub.

    I went into the DVD player menu and tried setting the speakers to 'small'. It made no difference. Naturally the sub is turned on in the DVD menu and at its highest menu setting of 0dB.

    So what went wrong with my expeiment? :clown:
