Think ahead how to measure the DSETs gain.

If you are in DSET environment then do yourself a favor and build into your DSETs a mechanism that would allow you to monitor the gain of your channels. It might be in real time or in a special calibration mode but you will need and. If you do not in then your DSET’s gain WILL slide and you WILL miss it. After living for a while with 12 channels DSET I feel that calibration mode is an absolute the MUST for DSET. You were warned.

Adjusting the gain Melchiades

Does Melchiades single channel amps have this gain mechanism built in?  Since this is the audio for dummies thread, might I ask how this adjustment is done and what kind of device you would use for measuring?

The calibration mode is for DSETs not for SET.

A full-range Melquiades or any other SET might have gain control but it is not necessary as the gain drift of one of the channels (right or left) will be very auditable in shifting of center imaging. What you have DSETs working in narrow bandpass then the shifting of the center imaging for the given bandpass is much harder to get from normal music listening and switching the amp into a calibration mode is much better way to do deal with the problem.
