Configuring Speaker Output
When connecting Symphony I/Oʼs analog outputs to powered speakers (or a power amp and passive speakers), set the Speaker Out drop down menu in Maestro's Output tab window to match the speaker set-up employed. The following settings are available:
- Line - All analog outputs are set to Line level, as defined by the Analog and Digital Reference settings.
- Stereo (1-2) - Choose this setting when connecting a stereo set of speakers to analog outputs 1 and 2. Analog outputs 3-8 operate as standard line outputs.
- 5.1 (1-6) - Choose this setting when connecting a 5.1 set of speakers to analog outputs 1 through 6. Analog outputs 7-8 operate as standard line outputs.
- 7.1 (1-8) - Choose this setting when connecting a 7.1 set of speakers to analog outputs 1 through 8. All analog output levels are controlled by hardware and software level controls.
Once set, speaker output levels may be controlled from a wide variety of hardware and software controls, as described in Setting Speaker and Headphone Output Levels.
Configuring Headphone Outputs
The headphone outputs may be set to mirror any I/O Module hardware output, using the HP1 and HP2 drop down menus found in Maestro’s Output tab window.
