So I hooked a pair of RCA on the unbalanced connections on the Pani to the CD in RCA on the Denon. Now I can listen to CD's without turning on my projector.
Yeah, that sounds pretty stupid. Fortunately for me, I never try playing CDs on my 9000. I have a number of other devices that support CDs, SACDs and DVD-As that don't have this restriction.
