Hooking up a Pioneer VSX 822-k to Nuvo Essentia

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I am definitely new to the whole AVS scene so I have a rookie question that I am hoping that someone can answer.

I have a Pioneer VSX 822-k AVR that I am trying to hook up as another source to our Nuvo Essentia whole home audio system. The Nuvo only accepts RCA jacks for the source inputs and it does not appear that there are any RCA outputs on the Pioneer AVR with the exception of the Pre Out.

Is it possible to use the Pre Out as another source in the Nuvo and what settings would I need to establish on the AVR, or is there a better way to accomplish this without using the Pre Out?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

The only preouts on that receiver are surround back channels. You would need to upgrade to a higher
level receiver or convert the front left/right speaker outputs to line level with something like this.

Given you already have the receiver, a converter like this is the only way to go.
Other pioneer receivers have line-outs, but you need to be careful how you hook it up:
* right/left main pre-out will only give you the right/left in "stereo mode". A 7.1 setup will only give you the "front" sound to the nuvo.
* zone2 line out would work, but your source needs to supply analog output. For example, a DVR HMDI connection will not supply R&L output to zone2 line out.
