AUTO ON/OFF FUNCTIONALITY WITH BUILT-IN EQ AND 2-STEP GAIN SETTING

All inputs on the MX5 include an Auto On/Off functionality. The unit turns on when a valid signal is detected. When a legitimate signal is lost, the machine shuts down (goes into standby mode) after a certain amount of time has passed. MX5 provides three sensitivity choices for analogue signals with varying intensities to ensure that the audio signal is recognised. Digital signal detection is enabled, and analogue signal detection is disabled by default. When the digital input signal is invalid, the automated shutdown wait time is one minute. The shutdown wait time is set to 10 minutes. The MX5 provides adjustable treble and bass functionality from -10dB to +10dB to suit your preference. The power and headphone amplifiers on the MX5 have two-step gain adjustments to respond to input sources of varying strengths which can also be adjusted via remote control.
