Tell you what.
You do those tests, I'll do some others. (Play with disc settings )
The only can slaw test I will do is the following.
Take some shears and a can,,and a latest generation IH penny.
Cut the aluminum for size so that Deus reads it as IH penny (unnormalized using 12khz)
Then compare Equinox in Multi freq ,over both the IH and the piece of can slaw I come up with.

Not all headphone jacks used will turn off external speaker when used. Seems stereo plugs don't turn off external speaker.

Mono ones will.

I saw a gent post about this, I experimented with mine today and saw it too, but my stereo phones were bad, but when they were plugged in, external speaker kept working.

Seems the headphone module will accept stereo jack and work correctly.
