The Source Settings tab allows you to congure audio settings and system outputs on the MMS.
The Audio System section allows you to congure the MMS for RS-232 or IP connection to an external multi-room amplier.
The Connections section allows you to enable or disable each output, rename them, congure maximum sampling rate and bit depth (digital outputs only) and set each to variable or xed gain output for pass-through control of volume, mute and zone power on the amp from the MMS OSD and web interface.
Fixed vs. Variable Gain Fixed Gain is recommended in when the connected amplier has an accessible volume control.
Failing to set the output to xed in this circumstance can cause contention between the MMS volume control and the ampliers volume control and can affect sound quality.
Variable gain should be used if the MMS is connected to an amplier that does not have a volume control, or if you wish to control the volume of the MMS directly with the Mirage web interface or mobile applications.
Disabling Unused Outputs
If you will not be using all of the available outputs, set the option to Disabled.This will keep those outputs from consuming system and power resources, and will remove these items from the lists.
You can rename the source outputs by double clicking on their name in the web browser.The new name will be used on our web control interface and mobile applications.
For control system integrations, the server will always respond correctly to commands issued using the default output names, and will also respond commands issued using the new names. For this reason, you should avoid renaming the outputs to any of the other default names (ie, Main, Player_A, etc.)
Bit Depth And Sample Rate Resolution
You can set the bit depth and sample rate of the digital audio outputs to values from 16-bit/44 kHz, all the way up to 24-bit/192 kHz on the MMS·5A and 24-bit/96kHz on the MMS·2.
You should set this value to the highest setting that your amplier or AV receiver can support. If y o u ’ r e u n s u r e o f t h e h i g h e s t s u p p o r t e d b i t d e p t h a n d s a m p l e r a t e o n y o u r e q u i p m e n t , t h e M M will play a sample sound in each speaker whenever you change this setting. If you hear the test tone, your amplier supports that setting. If you do not hear a test tone, lower this setting until you can hear the test signal. S
The AirPlay Receiver section allows you to assign one output on the MMS to be an AirPlay receiver.When enabled, the Mirage Media Server will be displayed on the AirPlay menu of any device or software that supports airplay (iOS devices and iTunes running on a Mac or PC).
When the Mirage Media Server is selected, any currently playing content will be interrupted and the server will begin to wirelessly stream the content from the connected device.
