Hi. Am hoping to get some sound advice about connecting a vintage TT to my Yamaha RX-V663 AVR (currently being used to drive a 5.1 HTS.) I play CDs through my Blue Ray player connected via HDMI. And I stream music via Pandora. But my goal here: to properly connect/use my Denon TT with the Yamaha. I have a solid vintage preamp ready to insert between the TT and Yamaha to bring the cart's signal up to line level. A few questions: Q. Where is the best place to connect the preamp to the Yamaha? CD? DVD? DVR? Any available unused set of red/white audio inputs? (But if I do, won't I be sending an analog signal to a digital input?) Q. I also have VCR audio inputs. An analog option? But I might be re-connecting a VCR soon so I'd like to keep these open. Q. Will selecting Yamaha's Pure Direct function while playing vinyl do anything positive? I've read that it turns off many processes to keep the signal clean, but might also disable the subwoofer? Q. Do I ask too many questions LOL? Many thanks for any advice.
