Newbie question about separates
OK, so after getting my new Dolby Atmos setup up and running, I decided that I really need both sets of speakers working for Zone 2 and 3, so that leaves me 2 amps short.
I went and bought a Marantz MM-7025 2-chanell amp, and hooked it up today.
So now I'm back to two channels going to my Zone 2 speakers (through speaker terminals), and two channels going to my Zone 3 speakers (using zone 3 pre-outs). OK, everything works great, except one little issue. I've never owned separates before, and I want to find a way that when I turn on the 7011, my external amp turns on as well.
I read up on how the "DC out" and "DC in" controls work. However, when I connected the supplied cable from the DC Out 1 plug of the 6011 to the DC In plug of the 7025, not only does the power not come on at the same time, but my Zone 2 speakers went dead. I can tell you that the DC out cable is pretty loose on the 7011, and even moving the cable a slight amount causes clicking sounds to come out of the 7011.
Any advice or information on this would be appreciated.
