Description of change:
The New C Series firmware update on network models adds:

Input 2 (mic/line or 100V) can now be used to override other inputs when active
- Tooltips to the web interface
- Status reporting for configuration of alerts and notifications
- and support for DHCP Option 61
- The ability to assign a single channel amplifier to either phase for use of perimeter loop drivers as part of a larger multiloop installation e.g. theatre balconies
All models now have:
- HF Boost MLC option added to better optimise frequency response for systems where metal losses have caused a more significant high frequency attenuation.
