Yes, this is probably the dBu figure. However, the absolute input
level specification should be a negative number (for instance -70dBu)
because it is a voltage level referenced to 0.775 Vrms. Care should be
taken when comparing the specifications provided by the various
manufacturers. They often use different (and unusual) definitions for
their figures, which means that we cannot always trust them.
