To the first question....
No, you CANNOT connect a USB WiFi dongle to one of the USB ports on the RMC-1 to WiFi enable it (they are "dedicated special purpose ports").
However, you can connect the Ethernet port on the RMC-1 to an Ethernet port on a WiFi router or extender.
Or, more simply, you can purchase something like this, which is specifically designed "to add WiFi support to devices that have network support built in but not WiFi support"...
“The Size screen will enable you to configure the sizes, crossover frequencies, and crossover slopes for your speakers, the configuration of your Rear Surround speakers, and the configuration of your subwoofers.”
On the XMC-1 you can switch between 12 & 24 dB / octave (this is from memory, not at home)
thanks. i saw that in the manual on page 56 but I didn't see any mention of slopes.
I have a few other questions.
1. can a wireless dongle but connected to one of the usb ports? I don't have a hard wired network connection available in the room where I would place the xmc2.
2. Does it allow both height and top speakers to be configured for atmos/dts:x? in my current setup with a marantz 7705, I have front height and top rear.
3. Most subwoofers don't have a xlr connection. Are people just using converter cables to get their subwoofers connected?
