Thanks db, I'd missed that last post, very helpful
Well, we have ZONE 3 people!
That was remarkably easy and sounds decent on the old cable I found, will upgrade the cable next time I'm buying any though. Very pleased indeed!
Also have a pair (cheap) and an odd (decent) smallish speaker to try the surround, so expect more stupid questions soon...
For starters though, a really simple and possibly very obvious one: Help the Idiot Time #3
If I want 5/6/7 channel audio from the DVD - and I really do - I have red&white OUTs but can't see where they'd go to on the amp, only corresponding option seems to be pre-amp but I confess to no knowledge of said thing
does it mean it's an IN for pre-amplified signals? I'm assuming this would mean I'm using the DVD players DAC?
But I think it's safe to assume that the amp is the better quality gear so option two would be optical - again new to me - would that be the preferred route? Lot less cable clutter that way too!
