There seems to be a general lack of depth to the technical information in the user manuals or data sheets.
One example of this is the subwoofer output of the Node IIi product and also the professional version or the product, the B100S.
A professional sound installer would need to know the frequency and rolloff of any filters applied to the subwoofer output and main speaker outputs when the "With Subwoofer" option is selected. This currently isn't specified. This information is needed to know, for example, what the roll-off setting should be set to on the subwoofer, or if it should be set at maximum because the Node IIi/B100S is handling that function.
I had to make measurements myself to establish this, but that should not have been necessary.
Another example is the remote IR input. I purchased a remote RX thinking it was a standard however it just didn't work at all when I plugged it in. How many pins is the IR input jack and what are the connections? This should be in the specification so I know what to plug into it.
In general, any hardware/software control, input or output needs to be fully technically documented so that an end user doesn't have to go and measure it themselves.
For professional products, a block diagram would also be useful.
