Yeah, is that possible? Say, for example, I wanted to use your plate amps in a home theater setup. So, I have 6 plate amps (for basic 5.1 HT), and I want to use the AES digital inputs on each one. I can get a box that converts HDMI to multiple AES, outputs with HDMI pass through for the TV, no problem. Thus, I can connect a Blue Ray player to the nanoAVR with HDMI output, and then connect the converter box to the nanoAVR for distribution to the miniDSP plate amps and the TV. My problem is what to do about a system volume control? Obviously, each plate amp has a volume control on it, but it would be a serious hassle to have to adjust each one every time I wanted to change the system volume level. There seems to be a hole in your product lineup, unless the nanoAVR has a built in system volume control that I don't know about. It seems to be a "set it and forget it" kind of box. Your new product DDRC-88A has analog inputs and outputs, so that wouldn't work, but it does have a volume control. Any ideas on what can be done about this? Thanks.

nanoAVRs have volume control by infrared remote. Also the Android/iOS app.
I am not miniDSP support.

Thanks. I didn't see that in the little bit of documentation that I read. So, don't really need an A/V receiver at all if using the plate amps.... cool.
