    Bean, why would Nak use a digital out on the sub out when subs do not have a built in DAC? A sub is just like any other speaker. If you needed the signal converted to analog, subs would have built in DAC's.

    You are absolutely correct. He bamboozled me. My lack of experience did not help.

    If you have any other questions or concerns send me a PM and I will give you my cell number. Getting started and correct info can be confusing.

    Be aware Blackraven's cell# begins with 900.

    Sounds like the turntable needs some isolation. Try moving the sub further away if possible. If you are on a wood floor the turntable needs to be on something solid enough it isn't effected so much by the vibrations. I remember some people back in the day suspended their turntable from the ceiling but I never understood how they were able to get it level, if it was.

    If the turntable is linear tracking it most likely uses a P-mount type cart. I believe Ortofon still offers some of those.

    Remember an LP is just a recording pressed into the vinyl, so if the original recording isn't good the LP sound quality won't be good, and if the original recording was done well you will have a good sounding LP. Now, condition is another story. If you see scratches on the surface of the LP you will hear it, the worse the scratches, the worse it will sound. Buying used, you also don't know what the LP was played on so there may or may not be groove damage. The LP should be as clean as possible. Always return them to their sleeve after playing.

    So I set up Nakamichi AV10. Sounds really good. Very powerful sound. All systems work.
    One question guys. I want to maximize potential of both Tannoys and Pioneers Ran an experiment with Tannoys connecting lows to speaker outs on Nakamichi AV 10 and highs to Nakamichi PA5, using former as a preamp. I was told that as soon as you use AV as a preamp for the fronts it cuts out speaker outs, both A and B. However when I connect the speakers that way. They seem to run at a higher power. I turned Nak PA 5 of and all sounds flatter. Not sure if I am correct or having false positive experience.
    I am doing this to extract as much sound out of Tannoys as I can.
    Planning to run Pioneers with a 200 WPC amp. Looking at Yamaha M70 for 300 on Craig's. PA 7 purchase will result in divorce.

    I am not a fan of biamping. I like to keep things simple, less to go wrong.

    You should consider a used Adcom amp. It will be more reliable and easier to get fixed.

    There are some good buys on Adcoms, Rotel and Classe amps on audigon.com right now. There are also a pair of Marantz MA 700 mono block amps.
