Hi all, I am about to purchase a new stereo amplifier. I have boiled down the options to the Pioneer A-30 or the Yamaha AS201. I enjoy loud music and deep bass. I had my mind set on the A30 but the Yamaha gives out more power but I am not sure if it supports AUX input which is essential as I am not connecting it to a CD player, but my IPHONE and the TV.

Any help is much appreciated

If I'm not wrong you can connect any of the inputs to anything you like, you could connect your cd input to the iPod or the tv. Or the tape to a VCR, or DVD. Just don't connect it to the phono. That one is only meant for turntables. Okay?
Happy Shopping!

Thanks! Yeah I did end up going for the AS201 and I do not regret it! However, i have a red and white RCA going to the TV from the tuner output but the amp does not produce the sound, help?


Thanks.

Happy to be of help! I don't know which tv you have but try increasing the volume on the tv itself and check if there is an external speaker option under sound menu or something similar.

I have an LG LCD HDTV, see picture of the inputs below. I have tried RCA into AUX on the TV but the sound quality is terrible.

I think you are getting your inputs and outputs confused. The red and white rca terminals on the receiver are inputs.


You need to connect the audio out on the TV to an input on the receiver. It looks like the only audio output you have on the TV is the optical toslink port. So you will need one of these converters to play your TV sound through the receiver, and a optical toslink cable.

Then connect the optical toslink cable to the audio output on the TV and the converter, then rca cables from the converter to an input on the receiver (not the phono though).


Hope this helps.
