    I just bought one from Circuit City and it is a great amp but, whenever I hit the pure audio mode it also cuts off the subwoofer. Does anyone know of a setting that will fix this problem?
    Thanks

    Yea I have one and it does that too. It is ideal for music with alot of vocals and not alot of bass. The sound field is amazing in this mode though, the music seems to just come out of the air.

    If you want thumping bass switch it to stereo mode.

    From the manual:

    Direct/Pure Audio
    This mode delivers pure sound with minimum sound quality adjustment and filtration. The sound recorded for the right and left front channels is output to the right and left front speakers only and not output to the subwoofer.
    Same as the direct mode except that the pure audio mode also turns off the display window, turns off the power supply to the video circuitry, and minimizes the sources of noise. The result is high-fidelity music playback true to the original source.

    Stereo
    This mode has all input sound is output from the left and right front speakers.
    Subwoofer can also be used for playback.
