Re: souud delay on tv /amp
Instead of connecting each device (sky&dvd rec.) to the TV separately, I would simply hook up the sky to dvd recorder (connect the sky output and dvd recorder input), and then connect the dvd recorder output (must be called "play out") to one of the available recorder inputs (which could be a dvr, an empty tape input, etc)of your amp. However, you'll still have to establish a feedback between your dvd recorder and your amp. Therefore, if the dvd rec. supports it, you'll have to hook up the rec.out, which is on your amp.,to rec.in on your dvd recorder. After all these audio connections, you will only need to make a video connection among the sky, dvd rec., and tv. Get a video cable to hook up the sky video output to your dvd recorder's video input, then do the same thing between the dvd recorder's tv output and tv.

Hello Ststbandb, what do you mean by entering a CD player Cambridge azure 340c ?, does not have audio inputs, the only one that has is the energy, or questions how to disassemble the equipment
It would be good to indicate what you need, so you can give an idea of how to do it
I wait your answer
Greetings Franco Dosil

I found only an 851A amp - I hope it is what you have or very similar. You can add an equalizer (or tape recorder for that matter) easily by making use of the amplifier's "Record In" & "Record Out" jacks. The amplifier's "Record Out" jacks should be patched to the equalizer's "In" jacks and the amplifier's "Record In" should be patched to the equalizer's "Out" jacks.
On the amp, select your source (1, 2, etc.) as usual. Press the "Rec In" button to divert the stereo source signals to the equalizer for customized shaping before being amplified - press again to bypass the equalizer and send the source stereo signals directly to the amplifier - and speakers.
After about 100 CD-DVD units, I've found that most problems are from debris/film on the laser lens. If taking the cover off the unit doesnt scare you, unplug it and blow out the CD assembly with a can of compressed CO2 and VERY lightly clean the laser lens with 91% or better alcohol on a cotton swab. If that doesnt work , contact Cambridge Audio for a repair service.
The sound delay would not be caused by hooking amp up but must be a software problem in sky box. Try to get an off air station with a antenna and see if the problem persists.The dvd recorder should see your sky box output first then out from recoder to tv.Then use tv audio out to amp,or tv audio out to amp.
