    ability to turn off internal amp

    Assuming all speakers in your setup will be driven by external amplifiers, any other benefit to having this feature?

    I beleive it adds voltage to your preouts when doing so, correct me if i am wrong.

    The manual for my X-889 says that doing this increases your output voltage and creates less heat with better SQ as a few stated above. I notice a huge difference when I turn it off and on.



    No matter how HOT she really is, somebody, somewhere is tired of her *****!

    I know you mentioned kenwood already, but my X789 has the feature too. I think the entire(or at least the majority) of the eXcelon lineup have this feature.

    My Alpine CDA-9855 has it too.

    EDIT: And if I would have read further up I would have seen the blanket "some Alpines" statement. Nice job noob.
