I have the Rotel RX1050 and Rotel rb 1070.
pre-amp out to Amp inputs hooked up. speakers hooked up. cd player hooked up. Zone cd and cd selected. and, Yes, the power is on. also both A and B speakers are selected and LED lights on. But NO SOUND. nothing! Is the receiver blown? Even though it's a few years old, it's been barely used. Is there something that is NOT on or needs to be off?
I don't get it.

The Bose controller gets wired in series between the pre-amp and the power amp.
I presume you plan to use the 901's as the front L&R pair. So the cables going from the 740's Pre-Out Front L&R go to the inputs on the Bose controller. The outputs of the Bose controller go to the power amp Front L&R channel inputs.
You didn't say whether the player is connected by 2 RCA cables (analog) or by digital cable. If by RCA, does the player have a headphone jack? I had a player once with a piece of a headphone that broke off inside the jack, muting the analog outputs.
If you have audio out jacks from your tv, you would be better served hooking that up to the preamp. If you hook up the blu-ray player separately to both the tv and amp, the audio probably will not sync with the video correctly. The tv takes longer to decode the hdmi input and the audio will be ahead.
I think the best solution is to remove the jumpers from the Pre Out - Mon In connectors, insert a pair of RCA Y-adapters and plug one end back to the Mon In while the other ends feed the NAD (Page 15 of the manual available at Retrevo.com) . The Rotel's volume and other controls will still be in charge of the NAD.
The manual fails to mention looping the Pre Out back to the Mon In to enable the Rotel's amp to still participate in the program material.
Congrats on your new AV receiver. I own an awesome Yamaha mid-priced AV surround sound system with HDMI, BR disc player, and all that stuff. However, I'm old school and use my 901 Series Vs with a Yamaha RX-797 'two-channel' receiver. To get to the point, I have some bad news. Mid-priced (mp) AVRs, or any AVR for that matter, will not work with 901s because the active equalizer (EQ) requires either a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out / main-in' connection to work properly. You've probably been told the 'why they won't work' by now and it is very true--I know from experience. Most of today's AVRs do not include a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out/main-in connection for the EQ connection, thus, killing all hopes of using 901s. I truly love my 901 Series Vs (since 1985 and still kicking) and love true 'stereo' for playing my music. Again, 901s are useless with today's AVR equipment (as I know it). Just don't let your 901s collect dust--they are truly marvels!! Go with a set of good 'standard' speakers for the AVR system and buy yourself a decent stereo receiver or amp for the 901s--that's how I do it!! I've tried Onkyo, Rotel, Sansui, Poineer amps / receivers--all of them. I can tell you this--for the common, working man/woman, nothing, I mean nothing available can match-up with Bose 901s like a Yamaha RX-797 (200W)--not to mention the sound quality-wow!!! And this unit is very reasonably priced for such awesome performance and high quality build. Just know that all is not lost. You can still use your 901s--I cna't listen to music without mine.
Do this, CD audio out jacks to the PRE-AMP INPUT jacks, then PRE-AMP OUT jacks to AMPLIFIER INPUTS then from AMPLIFIER to speakers, This will work similiar with any sound source unit ie. Radio Tuner, Tape deck, etc. Just think of it this way, a PRE-AMP is BEFORE the AMPLIFIER, all the AMPLIFIER is going to do is AMPLIFY the sound to your speakers, HOPE THIS HELPS!
go into your amp settings menu then to speaker settings,set zone 2 on and main on, turn up the volume for zone 2 about half way then connect phono cables from zone 2 pre out to a input on the external amp (eg cd input )
never use the phono input this is for turntables,connect this amp to your speaker switch/selector then to speakers.
the blue line from the radio harness does not have power when the cd or aux are being used and the amp is not turning on-wire the remote line from the amp to the red line and your amp will stay on and you will get sound
