The Sept. 30 CAP deadline has been extended until June 2012, but this tidbit from Sage (sent by way of Kirk Chestnut, CPBE, of Entercom in Kansas City) might be of use to you. Christopher Vournazos of Sage says that for the new Sage Digital Endec, the default audio gain settings are too high. The advice is to set Playback for 30 and set Record 1 and Record 2 for 16. Vournazos says a firmware update is due shortly that will make the level setting more intuitive for the end-user. The levels can be set using the ENDECSetD software or through the front-panel controls (Menu ? Levels ?).
