If this had LFE subwoofer RCA out I would buy it. Also if it could detect when a sub is connected, and crossover to feeds at, say 110 Hz center freq (send everything below 115 Hz to the sub out and everything above 110 Hz to the R / L speaker outs) that would be awesome!!! anybody know if an amp that does this with great specs and cost effective???

I'm not sure if this would work with what you want, but in the manual for my AD18 it shows that you can use a coaxial 3.5mm to rca sub out cable thingy to send signal to a powered sub (see picture)

this restricts you to using a coaxial input, but it could potentially solve your problem, if I'm understanding what you're wanting

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I've made cables like this before using TRS to split signals and while they do work -they don't provide any filtering to send only the frequencies you want to send separatly to the sub and LR mains. I could use the special cable then insert a filter but it would be kludgey and possibly introduce noise and would also drive up the cost. Sounds like you own an AD18 ... can you let us all know if you like it and what you do and don't like about it / how you use it / what speakers you are driving with it? Thanks.

I just got my AD18 a couple of days ago, so it hasn't been put to the rest of time, but from the experience I've had so far, I have to say that I'm loving it.
im using my unit with my gaming/workstation pc, connected via optical SPDIF-toslink. The only static I'm able to hear through either my headphones or speakers is in the audio itself that is playing. Speaking of headphones andspeakers, I've got a pair of Sennheiser HD558s, and am powering a pair of KEF Q100s. The sound is full and the AD18 does a fantastic job at driving both units. I haven't been brave enough to even go half of the max volume on either one lol.
The only complaint I would have about the AD18 would have to be the remote. From what I've heard, it works leagues better than the older remotes that the AD18s used to ship with, but it could still use a bit of work. The inputs can feel laggy at times, and there's two buttons that don't do anything, since the AD18 only runs on one of the three channels that the remote can be set to.
All in all, though, I'm very happy with my purchase.
Also, anyone should feel free to ask my any questions. I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability.
