In Topic: Micro Tech 1200 "Supply" vs. "ODEP" LEDs?

Nothing official from Crown tech regarding "Supply" vs "ODEP" nomenclature for the LED indicators?

I've done some reading on ODEP, however no reference found to "Supply". Both amps I have clearly are labeled "Supply" where the current literature shows ODEP.

Is "Supply" merely the name used before someone came up with the ODEP acronym or does Supply indicate something totally different than ODEP?

My point wasn't to imply a box is never needed, only that they're usually not needed. For sure there are some situations where they can be quite helpful.

FWIW, I've connected several Crown (and other brand) pro amps to consumer gear and never needed a "boost box" to be able to drive rated output (or beyond to clipping). Granted, I have not tried to drive a pro amp directly from an iPod, et al, but from any number of different consumer/home preamps including tube preamp. In these cases I've used RCA > XLR or RCA > TS adapter cables. I also have some home preamps with XLR outputs but didn't count those in my comments (although they work just fine too).

I have several different home amps and several different pro amps. Taking the average of the input sensitivities, the pro amps actually had slightly higher sensitivity (lower voltage needed to drive rated output).
