Default Outputs on XP30

Is there only 1? Or 2? Looking to upgrade but I currently use 2 on my Mac, one for mains and a second to my powered sub.

The XP-30 has two outputs per channel - a master and a slave (which means you can vary the gain between the two) in both single-ended (RCA) and Ballanced (XLR) flavors. Since both RCA and XLR can be used simultaneously, you actually get a total of 4 outputs overall.

Each channel individually provides master and slave outputs. The
relative level between the master and slave outputs of each channel
is adjustable by a knob on the front panel of each individual gain
chassis. If you have ever wanted to bi-amp your loudspeakers,
you might appreciate that this feature allows easy use of different
types of amplifiers for the low vs the high frequencies, adjusting
the relative levels as needed. If you need big power and control on
the bottom but want the sweet character of tubes on the top, you
may wonder how you ever got along without this. Or why other
companies don’t offer it.

It is even useful when the same types of amplifiers are used –
typically without the full load on each amplifier the subjective balance
still needs minor tweaking.

All connected gain chassis respond to the master level adjustment on
the main control chassis through a completely new volume control
covering a range of 100 dB in precise 1 dB steps.

Both outputs of each channel are offered as single-ended and
balanced outputs having the same gain and impedance and both may
be used simultaneously with no degradation.
