Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Unfortunately, my copy of the manual is an optical scan so I can't actually read the legends very well for the rear panel connections or the OSD's...
Yes, use the Coaxial Digital Input, the Optical Digital Input and the AC3-RF (upper right). That's three (* or more).
I don't get what they're saying in the note on Page 13 about the three digital connectors and leaving the analog cables attached vis-a-vis multiroom and headphone use.
Page 29 discusses selecting the digital INPUT MODE. I imagine you could have three devices connected digitally and select between them using this control, but the displayed function labels may not jibe with what they really are.
* Few people seem to be aware that coaxial digital inputs or outputs can be physically shared because they're simply old -fashioned RCA cables. The only caveat is that you should only have power turned on for the input device you want to use or you'll get digital collisions. PLUS, you can join cables to make longer ones. Get some RCA splitters and you can run a couple of digital devices to any single Coaxial Digital Input (Upper right rear). I run mine this way.
