I will try the things you suggested.
Does the tape input have to be set up in any special way. What are the settings.
Like thestewman, I was unable to google a DAC phono preamp. I did find a DAK that can be used as a preamp connected to your D2v, or to send it to a computer to burn to disc or a hard drive.
Basically the connections are simple.
The R/L connectors from your turntable connect to the 'phono in' on the preamp.
You may have the choice of a MM or MC connection or just a toggle switch.
Connect the phono ground if necessary.
The pre-out goes to the D2v with a pair of RCA cables. If your phono pre-amp has balanced (XLR) connections you have the option of using the '2 CH BALANCED' Anthem input. Otherwise you can use 'Tape' ,'Aux' or any other unused analog in connection.
The setup is pretty straight forward in the Anthem.
You have the choice in the SOURCE SETUP to choose if you want to use ANALOG or ANALOG DSP.
ANALOG will just send the info to your R/L fronts. The D2v will just control the volume.
ANALOG DSP will allow you to use ARC, and the associated bass management, and to choose options like AntemMusic or DTS music settings in the MODE PRESET area of setup. Even if you choose STEREO it will use your sub and room correction if you use ANALOG DSP and turn on ROOM CORRECTION in the SOURCE SETUP.
You will then want to go to the ANALOG INPUT SETTING area and adjust the level so that you are in PINK. Refer to the manual for better instructions.
This is an important step--don't skip it.
