I have my CD player hooked up to my integrated amplifier - works great.
I'd like to add a DVD player & TV into the system.
As I don't have a AV receiver, and only a 2.0 speaker setup, I would like to see if I can stick with my integrated amp.
In order to have the sound from the DVD player go through the amp, and the picture go to the TV, is a HDMI splitter the item I need?
I have a TASS High Resolution Surround Decoder, which is currently not in use. I have a pair of Ambience speakers with smaller Mission center speakers, a Dennon amp and CD player, and a Parasound Power Amp, plus a rarely used sub-woofer.
I was thinking of reinstalling the TASS but have no idea how to wire it in (it was originally installed with rear speakers by Surya of Absolute High End.
Can anyone help with (simple) instructions? P. S. I'm not in any way an expert with wiring.
I see the latest Luxman speaker cables have this wire called a "drain wire". Does anyone have any idea what it is meant to do because I'm confused as to its intended purpose.
It seems to be utilized in the interconnects as well.
I just bought myself a new receiver, a Marantz SR7500, for my vinyl setup. It doesn't have a phono stage like my Dad's old NAD I've been using until now, so I'm after an external one. My turntable is a Technics SL-BD20 though that will likely be upgraded in the coming months. FWIW I'm just listening with headphones for now, Sennheiser HD58X, speakers will come later down the line.
Preferably I'd like something under 200 downundeh dollars, and preferably not an import. Ones I've found include;
Schiit Mani $269 free shipping Pro-ject Phono Box $180 + shipping Rega Phono Mini A2D $149 free shipping Pro-Ject Phono Box SE ii $200 used + shipping
The Schiit is a bit pricier than I'd really like but I've heard a lot of good things about it and it has by far the most information / impressions out there. Which do you think would be the best choice, is there something else I should consider?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
I am looking for some advice regarding my amplifier. I had bought Emotiva TA-100 amp while visiting USA a couple of years ago (still under warranty). Recently I noticed that it is producing static noise. I unplugged everything except power and speaker cable and have replaced the power and speaker cables but I can still hear the noise if I am close enough to the speaker (Maybe 1 feet away) . Also tried to connect my speaker (Elac UB5 ) to my very old Denon amp which did not produce any noise. Contacted Emotiva and they are saying that its normal for some amps to have noise. I have sent them a recording of the noise and they are still not accepting that there is anything wrong with the amp. To me this much noise does not seem normal.
Just wanted to know if anyone had a similar experience with Emotiva or any other amp. Would appreciate any advice that anyone can give me.
