Can you add an equalizer? Does it have a tape monitor function?
Asked by: John
There is a channel on this integrated amplifier with a record out, so you could connect an equilizer into this system. Oherwise you would have to connect the equilizer between one component, such a CD player, and the amplifier.

Will this amp play all cds in multi-channel ...

Will this amp play all cds in multi-channel stereo.I notice it does not decode like 5.1 receivers.I am looking to upgrade my sound system.Will it sound better then the sony STR-1080 set to (multi channel stereo) with decent speakers?I dont have much experience with sound systems.THANKS,JOE.
Asked by: joseph
This is a stereo amplifier (2 channel only) So with two speakers connected it will sound the same or slightly better than the SONY with just two speakers connected. it will not offer you any simulated surround effect as the SONY might.

question

I have a set of 4ohm speakers and a set of 8 ohm speakers I want to listen to at the same time. Do I connect the 4 ohms to the B speaker terminals and the 8 ohm speakers connected to the A side? The info box on page 5 seems to suggest that. And then set the Impedence selector to LOW ?Thanks!Dick
Asked by: Dick G.
You can use whichever speakers you choose, in either the A or B location. Yes. If one pair, either A or B is 4 ohms, you do select Low.
