I just received my PS 15 Power Plant and the sound is awesome. I have tried to use the power delay features to shut down my amps but my Benchmark AHB2 amps fault out when power is lost and need to be turned on manually when the power comes back on even though I have an “auto on” feature initiated on the amps. I have two of them and a Pass X-250 which works fine on startup and shut down via power to the outlet. All three amps have 12v triggers. I would like to control how they start up (after my Mini DSP sound processor starts and shut down before the Mini DSP or I will get an agonizing speaker thump) and also take advantage of the IR control that the unit is advertised as using, I have copied the text below. I called for assistance and the rep told me I could access these controlls through PowerPlay but it is nowhere to be found there. Please let me know how I can take advantage of these awesome features.
Also just to note there is a lot more information online about each of the features that the Powerplant has then is in the user guide that came with the machine. You may want to update that. . .
Thanks for your help,
IR and trigger controls
In the back of the P15, there are two mini jacks that can be assigned as either an IR input or output or a DC trigger transmitter or receiver. For the IR capabilities, the P15 can be assigned up to 15 separate IR commands for any zone and these IR broadcasts can be triggered by any number of assignable events. This helps P15 owners maintain complete control over not only the AC power, but by directly controlling that same equipment through a remote control.
If you have equipment that needs a DC trigger to turn it on or off remotely, you can assign one of the mini jacks to be either the sending or receiving unit for these commands and remotely turnon/off equipment or have that equipment remotely turn on/off the P15.
