Question about Marantz SR-5600 Receiver

Playing itunes through receiver

I have been able to hook my laptop to a lower end receiver via auxillary inputs so that I can play my itunes. However, I am really at a loss trying to figure out why I cannot get any sound to go through this receiver. I am using a cord that plugs into the headphone output on the computer and goes directly into the aux input in the receiver...When I select the appropriate aux channel on the receiver, there is no sound... other than making sure my volume is turned up, any suggestions on a better approach???

On the back of your tower you should have auxillary outputs that will go into your receiver. Get a connection going between the two ports and you should have perfect sound. The sound that comes out of your headphone output will not really have the amount of power that your receiver needs. Hope this helps.

Buy a 3.5 mm-to-RCA audio cable (you will probably need a long one). Plug the 3,5 mm. end of the cable into the headset jack of your laptop and the RCA end of the cable into the RCA/composite (R/L) audio input of your receiver.

IF your Laptop has a stereo LINE 1/8" INPUT jack, you can take the Stereo ( Left & Right ) LINE outputs on your mixer and feed into this jack on your PC. You will need a 1/4" dual plug for the mixer end to a single 1/8" stereo plug on the PC end. I suspect the problem you are having is either related to your PC only have a MIC input jack or you have something set wrong in your PC's sound config. file. More information is needed to properly solve the problem.

How to use MP3 on it


That model has a front-auxillary port on it. 
Just purchase a cable online (http://www.yourcablestore.com/6-Foot-25mm-Stereo-Headphone-Cable-Male-Male_p_76.html) or in Walmart, BestBuy, etc. 
When you get it, hook one end into the stereo and the other end to your MP3 player. 
Set the Aux as the source and press Play on the MP3 player.

Optical inputs


In short yes!

If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.

If i was you i would do the following:

1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.

That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.

However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.

But in short yes to your question.

hope this is not too confusing.

good luck
