Well, I finally retired my VSX-1015, replaced it with a CX-A5100 and a Outlaw 7700 7 channel amp.
Using the same speakers as a comparison, while the Yamaha - Outlaw sounds slightly better, I am impressed on how well the 1015 sounds in comparison. The difference could even be the YPAO, and/or the HDMI Audio vs the digital audio connection that I was using before.
At any rate, I would like to use my 1015 to power the other 4 channels. How do I get the 1015 to auto power on?
I see a "control in" and a "control out" connection on the back of the 1015, but the manual does not really explain what the control in and control out connections do.
Is the "control in" just a 12v trigger? It looks like it is a 2.5mm jack.
What other options do I have to auto turn on my awesome, recently retired VSX-1015?
I am already way over budget for my well deserved upgrade, so I would like to keep this as low cost as possible, I could also buy a BEHRINGER iNUKE NU4-6000 4 channel class D amp, for about 350 bucks, but I would rather re-use my 1015, and keep the budget overrun as small as possible!
