Niles SSVC-2 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Construction: The chassis is durable black metal with padded feet.
Speaker Switches: Each set of speaker outputs has an on/off switch so any combination of connected speakers can be played at any given time.
Removable Speaker Terminals: There are two removable speaker output terminal blocks and one removable speaker input terminal block. The blocks are removable, making it easier to wire the SSVC-2 into your system, and the blocks accept 14 to 22 gauge wire.
Protection Circuitry: The left and right channel ground returns are isolated to make the unit compatible with all types of amplifiers. The impedance magnification switch on the rear of the unit offers settings for up to six pair of speakers (even though there are only two pair of outputs) so the impedance load presented to the amplifier remains constant.
Volume Controls: The volume controls use autoformers instead of L-pads to minimize power loss and heat production. Each volume control uses a 12 position rotary knob with "pop-free" switching and 54 dB total attenuation.Labels: Included are 72 pre-printed label stickers for easy identification of the front panel controls.
- Frequency Response: 20-20kHz +/-1.2 dB
- Power Handling: 100 watts per channel RMS at 8 ohms

I have the Niles selector not the Denon. If the Denon has a speaker selector for speaker pair A and/or B then he does not need it. If he wants to run a third set of speakers (C) then he/she would need the larger Niles Selector. [ PAUL Apr 20, 2015 ]
I am sorry but I cannot assist. [ IRVIN Apr 20, 2015 ]
