Hey guys!! I am very happy new owner of the TX NR709, I moved from HT RC270 to this a week ago. I mainly moved to this for two reasons, one - the second HMDI output and the second - I wanted to see if the Marvell Qdeo's performance. Though I must add the Oppo performs way better, IMO for blu-ray play backs.
Anyways, I have a doubt/question, last night I was trying to play songs on my cell phone via the line out on the phone to the rca line in on the reciever but had trouble. In the past, with my RC270 I use to connect the phone to the TV/CD RCA line in on the reciever in order to listen to the songs on it, and use the AUX RCA line in to connect my MiniDisc player. But since the NR709 does not have a AUX RCA line in I am forced to use the TV/CD which is not available due to my MiniDisc player connected to it. So, I opted to use the Phono RCA in. However the music sounds very distorted. I am not sure if its my reciever or I am just not supposed to use the Phono in unless it is a record player?? IDK. But, anyways I did change from Phono to Game and the music played fine connected via Line out to RCA thru my phone. Can someone please help me figure out what I am doing right or wrong or is my reciever that is having some issues with its Phono In? Thanks!!
