Great upgrade for components lacking the 12V trigger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This product works as advertised. When setting it up, the Niles CS12V is "nulled" to the standby current of the control component, so that even components that don't draw much current when switched on can trigger the CS12V. I have it slaved to a Schiit Audio SAGA mini-preamp that draws less than 25 watts when on, and the CS12V triggers a Benchmark AHB2 power amp on and off without any problems. The CS12V also has a delay function, although I have it defeated. The Niles CS12V is a convenient way to upgrade components that do not have the 12V trigger function built-in.
Pros: Does exactly what it is supposed to do
