For me, trigger out is the one must-have that is missing from this otherwise awesome little unit. Countless nights have been spent dreaming about the DC-1, each ending with the same predictable "WWHHHYYYYYY@#%" and then reluctantly, not buying one.
Does anyone else feel this way?
Background: my amp (XPA-200) needs to live in a location remote from my pre-amp and speakers, due to just not having the space for the behemoth. I'm not prepared to leave my amp on 24/7.

I will be trying to find a way to do this once mine arrives this week..might require some internal works but I too have 12 reasons to not leave my amps on...I use a 12 channel amp to drive the actively driven speakers in my stereo setup. unfortunately the DC-1 might have power on internally all the time too as it runs fairly warm even when off.
My second XMC-1 is here...I LOVE THEM TWINS !!!
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.
For the most part it just all works...when it doesn't then it's time to rub a few brain cells together and soon enough it's all good to go again.
My universal remote (Harmony 700) turns on and off everything I want to turn on and off, including the DC-1. So, I don't need triggers.
