  • Checking the input level
    The S-4000R's eight-segment LED level meter allows you to view the input level of the currently selected channel. Use this meter in conjunction with the GAIN control to adjust the input gain of S-4000S input channels.
  • Input signal status (SIG)
    These indicators show the signal status of each input channel, and light green when signal levels above -40 dB are present.
  • Clip indicator (CLIP)
    A clip indicator is provided for each input channel. The indicators light red when the input signal reaches 0 dB.
  • Lock function
    A lock function is provided so that S-4000S settings can't be changed inadvertently.
    In addition to the above functions, the S-4000R provides error indications when a problem is detected in the system.
By using the S-4000 Remote Control Software (S-4000 RCS), you can remotely control and monitor the S-4000 System from a computer equipped with an RS-232C port.
