How come the manual doesn't indicate that you would hook up an external amp to the tape output?
All it talks about is hooking up a recording device or a monitoring device to this analog output.
I'm not sure, but it looks like you might have to press a button every time you switch sources to get sound to go to the tape output. If this is true, it might be confusing to use.
Anyway, it sure does look like these 2 tape outputs are the only ones that could be used to hook up the amp.
If I do go with the Russound 12 channel amp, I'll probably just by a two zone 7.1 AV receiver. Onkyo makes one that is only $100 more than the 2 channel receiver and I would get to drive one set of speakers directly from the receiver on a separate zone at full power.
Anyone else have any advice for me?
