I wonder if anyone can tell me could I get a feed from the Sony BDP-360 bluray into a Marantz PM6003 .stereo amp ? My CD player is getting old and I thought I may aswell just play the CDs on the bluray player.
There's L&R line-out at the back.
Main gear: Mac Mini > HRT Streamer II+ > Marantz PM66 KI > Mission 794
Also cluttering-up the place:
Thorens TD160 no cartridge; Marantz CD63 mkII KI; Technics SL-P777; Cyrus 2 + PSX; Cyrus Tuner; Nakamichi DR-1
How're your feeling?
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Yep, thats good , so will the output levels be correct ? Dont want to cause any damage !
I also presume I could watch music DVDs and listen to the sound through the Marantz/speakers . Would my Yamaha V667 still try to output the sound through my B/Accoustics - how would I feed the picture through to the TV without the sound working unless I just turned it down
Just leave the amp you're not listening too off/ turned down and you'll be fine...
Arcam CD72, Rotel RA02/RB03 biamp, TDL Studio 0.5 (or Wharfedale Coleridge- currently undergoing surgery...), QED Revelation s/c, Qunex 4S ics.
PC- Optical to Audio Alchemy DDEv1/Rotel RA935BX/Mission 780/VanDamme Studio Blue 6mm
Yes that sounds Ok. I need the AV amp on to feed the picture through to the TV so I'll just need to turn it down so I dont get both sets of speakers blaring at me
Cheers, I'm looking forward to setting it up now.
Right, I've been looking online at the manual for the b/ray and it seems that I will need to re-set the output signal each time I use either the stereo amp ( for CDs or music DVDs ) or the AV amp ( TV or films ) .
Also not sure that a Bluray DVD will switch its sound output to the line out instead of the HDMI . I will see....
No, the stereo left/right outputs should get either stereo (when a stereo source is played) or a downmix to stereo (when a surround source is played) regardless of the settings made for the HDMI or optical digital output. That should be part of the compatiblity spec for Blu-ray players, to ensure users with nothing more than a stereo amp can still use them.
So you can leave your settings for the output to the AV amp as they are, and you should get stereo out from the line-outs whatever the source.
