I thought perhaps the RMC1 could power up the amps and the JC2, but that doesn’t seem to work. The JC2 appears to flip out and shutdown...
No, you can’t, because the JC2 does not has trigger input.
However if my wife forgets to power up the JC2, the Left and Right fronts don’t run. The JC2 needs to be powered on for the signal to pass through the HT Bypass.
JC2 power consumption: 25 watt standby; 30 watts when turned on.
- Leave the JC2 power on at all times, it only draw 5 more watts than standby.
- Set the "Turn On Options" on the A21+ to "Audio".
- Set the RMC1 to turn on the XPA-11 via 12V trigger.
My goal here is to make this a no-brainer for my wife to turn on one device and everything else powers for home theater mode.
Every time after your listening session, change the JC2 back to pass through, so your wife only need to turn on the RMC-1 to power up the whole system.
