lol I'd go smaller but for my work I need number pad, I was using full size for the longest time. Finally decide to give 1800 layout a chance and bought Keychron V5. Took a while to get used to muscle memory. I still think I'm faster on full size (in terms of finding del, home, end, arrow key.....etc purely based from muscle memory), but I'm enjoying the smaller size so maybe I'll keep as it. Might try the aluminum Q series later (V is plastic).
Somewhere I think that Jason hinted that what Rekr really needed was a five-channel power supply, so people with five Rekrs did not need five wall warts. He did not promise, he hinted. I can’t find this now, maybe I imagined it.
I'm not sure I understand the idea there. In a surround system the speakers are quite far from one another.
So, one either runs long RCA/XLR wires to where the speakers are, with an amp nearby (preferable, according to audio dogma) OR
one has a short run from preamp to amp then long run of speaker wires (less preferable according to audio dogma).
What we really need are "transmitters"/"receivers" that use infrared lasers to transmit the PCM from preamp to a receiver/Modi/Rekkr. Would go well with the SHARC DSP chips....
My somewhat uneducated guess would be: The stereo line out RCA connectors of your AVR, if it has 'em?
Either that, or you go parallel to the AVR and plug the Syn into a second output of your source directly.
Some AVRs and surround preamps have individual inputs for 5.1, so I think that would be the only way to make it work with one. There is often a way to bypass the dsp when using these individual channel inputs, as is the case with my anthem surround preamp, as well as an adcom AVR I used to use.
Otherwise Syn acts as a standalone surround preamp hooked up to a 5 channel amp and a sub or similar arrangement.
