Hello, I have a question about the following.

I want to add a new surround receiver to my system. I looked at the 271 and when I thought about it, I thought, can I just use my 218 as an AD converter for this because I only have one pair of DSP speakers.

If I buy a AVR and connect my subwoofer and rear speakers to the AVR. Then connect the front pre-out to the analog in of the 218.

Can I set the volume of the DSP'S to a high volume and use the pre-out of the AVR to control the volume of what the DSP'S are receiving through the 218?

Best regards Ronald

You can leave the DSPs at 87 and volume control from the AVR. Depending on which AVR you use, it may be capable of compensating for the delays introduced in the analog to digital conversion in the 218 and the digital to analog conversion in the DSP speakers.

Thank you for your answer. Do you have any in mind who can be setup with delay settings?

Most that do auto setup with Dirac or Audesssy will do it

Good to hear. There is no possibility that for one source the startup volume would be 87 and an other would be 60. That would be ideally. Everything comes via the 218, ROON and the AVR. I have setup the startuo volume for Roon to 60.

If I set the 218 to 87 and switch back to music it would be at 87. That is much to loud.

A 271 would be a good solution but €2000 euro for only 2 speakers in my system is a bit expensive.

Is there an other option to solve this?
