  1. Filter Mode’: Your streaming device has four built-in filter modes each employing five digital filters optimized for corresponding sampling rates. Developed using a combination of objective data models and subjective testing these modes optimize sonic quality for varying music types and formats.
  2. Buffer Time’: The Lightning platform saves input signals to system memory to remove jitter then send it to DAC. A larger buffer time will add more latency between input and output, but may be more stable with various music sources.
  3. HT Bypass’: Home Theatre bypass mode. When enabled, the analog input signal will bypass the preamp’s gain controls letting you use your DAC purely as a unity gain preamp without having to worry about adjusting volume when watching movies — the receiver’s own volume control takes over that function.
  4. Volume Mode’: Set up the DAC's volume control.
  5. Channel Balance’: Adjust left and right channel balance of the DAC output.
  6. Display Settings’: Set preferences for the front panel display.
    • Idle Status: Select whether you’d like the display to always remain on, or to turn off automatically.
