Hi Teeza, I have one and have been very pleased with it from day one. 

 

Thanks Margetti. Can you confirm one thing it said in the review that is absent from the manufacturers site:

 

Although only one amp can be switched through at any one time (this is OK) the reviewer said that amp could then feed both sets of conected speakers - is that right? Can buttons A & B be in the "on" position at the same time?

 

I think we all have issues with training our families how to operate our kit. Roll on the invention of the remote that can read minds!

The equalisation will endeavour to achieve a flat frequency response, so if the stereo amp in use has a distinctive character, the EQ will adjust the frequency response of the affected channels to flatten things out again as well as it can.

 

I've just re-watched the video and it does suggest there could be issues with tonal matching. Glad it does not affect your set-up. I think I just need to try it out. The next problem is access to the back of my kit - don't know any anorexic contortionists by any chance?

Any differences in tonality should be correctable with the receiver's built-in EQ.

No, buttons A & B (for amp switching) can not be on at the same time - they are mechanically designed so pressing one on disengages the other. It is the same for buttons 1 & 2 (for speaker switching) - so only one pair of speakers can be driven at one time.

For future reference regarding the TC-7220 (as this thread is the top search result on Google when '2 amps 1 set of speakers' is entered...

Sorry, this is incorrect. I very recently emailed Stan Beresford to clarify this point, as I thought this to be the case (amplifier buttons interlocked for safety), and wanted clarification. I received this email back:

 

Hi Keith,

it is possible to press both amplifier buttons together. If that could pose a problem in your environment then I suggest that you send the item back to me right away for a refund.

 

Debating whether to sent it back and instead just deal with 30seconds of banana plug swapping when I want to swap between AVR and HiFi amplification. :?
