I was just wondering if there is any difference on the inputs of an amp? I have a Sony amp - can't remember the exact model. Its about 5 years old.
I know the phono input is slightly different to account for turntables. But the rest, namely CD, Tuner, AUX, Tape/MD, Tape/Tape. Is there any difference between these in terms of performance/compatability?
I have my DVD plugged into the tuner socket and it works fine. Are the tape inputs the same? The reason I ask is because I want to plug my laptop, ipod in etc. With my CD, Tuner and AUX inputs already used up, that leaves me with the tape inputs.
Hi Roscoe, you are probably right, yes the phono input is significantly different as it will be far more sensitive and have equalisation but all other inputs will be roughly the same.
Sorry Carl but this is not a problem for 'in depth' examination as all amps are pretty similar in this respect, after all they have to be, as a CD, radio, or tape inputs are all similar apart from some small level differences.
All your inputs are all 105 Db while the phono is 80 Db, Johns advise is correct, so yes you can use the rec input for other aux units.
Purchased this amp for partner, not putting yours down but there are others that give more/better sound per pound, found this amp very bland on sound, no sound stage, no separation on instruments, plenty of thud on bass but very wooly, if you are looking to get a better amp and not break the bank try the NAD c bee, or the C352, take a look at richer sounds site, you will be suprised at the differance in sound.
