I have added the BHK back into my system. I took Paul’s advise. I removed my entire system, removed everything. As this unit was part of a multi channel set up I had been using the BHK in HT bypass the entire time. This time I reversed the set up, I now use the BHK as my main preamp ( since I also almost never watch movies anymore ) and set up the room for music 1st and foremost. The Marantz can take a back seat!
Sweet sound! I am so happy with the sound. I have one question, are the RCA and XLR outputs separate inside the unit? I know they can be both used as say for main speakers and a sub. BUT I wonder if it’s possible for the firmware to be updated so that the outputs can be set up to have say one the outputs be shut off. Where this would be handle ( needed ) is in HT bypass mode. I’d rather use the XLR output of my Marantz AV8802 to control the subs for movies, but use the BHK to control subs with music listening. Right now I have to run two cables and unplug the RCA outputs on the BHK every time in bypass mode. Kinda a pain.
