Storing loudspeaker settings-powering down the speakers?

I am using a pair of 8240's driven from iPod/iphone digital out. MacBook pro has been taken care of the acoustical settings as well as the volume control through GLM (1.4.3). I need/want to remove the MacBook and GLM from the system from time to time. I have tried to store the acoustical settings to the loudspekers a couple of times for stand alone mode (Stored switch on, Store Acoustic Settings to All online Loudspeakers etc.). It all works fine when the speakers are powered. However, settings (volume control at least) seem to vanish from the speaker memory when power is swithced off and on again, and the speakers are giving me all they have...
I am kind of afraid to experiment any more. I would like to know whether it really is so that loudpeaker settings are "zeroed" when powered down?

Hi,

Loudspeaker settings are not zeroed when power cycling the speakers. Perhaps you have stored the settings with full master volume? Please use the option "Store Acoustic Settings to All Online Loudspeakers (With Current Master Volume)".

Hello,
Thank you very much for swift reply! It all works fine as you instructed!
It is truly amazing what one can achieve with these dsp speakers even in hostile acoustical environments...

Hi,

I have one issue related to power cycling the speakers. If I Store Acoustic Settings to All Online Loudspeakers (With Current Master Volume) and there is no input signal the Front Panel Warning Light is blinking red which I assume is the default behavior when there isn't any input signal (I use digital AES/EBU input). But if I power cycling the speakers the green light is always on. When I turn off the digital source the light will turn to red and blink once and then It will return to green. I just liked to know is the power consumption the same in both situation and why the behavior is different?

Hi,

power consumption is the same and your speakers operate normally. Speaker default to green after power cycling because a blinking red light might raise some questions. :)
