My first post, but long time lurker. I am interested in buying a Sony STRDH800 AV receiver, and at the moment I have a pair of M-Audio AV30 speakers. Now I am a complete novice, and I really don't understand connections and such like, but I will try to explain what the speakers are like and what I want to know if I can do.
The speakers are mains powered, and the left hand speaker has a built in amp and power supply, and is then fed to the right speaker by some speaker wire. The inputs to the speaker are red and white RCA phono plugs.
The manual is here:
Now on the back of the receiver, the audio speaker connectors are the standard ones, you kind of tie on and clamp. Think they are the usual ones for a stereo system.
Here is a good picture of it, and if you click on the page, there is an enlarged picture with all the outputs and inputs on it.
What I want to know is can I use the speakers with the receiver, so ALL the things I plug into it (PS3, TV, Xbox, satellite receiver and Wii) can use the one pair of speakers?
Please let me know if I haven't made sense, or if I have omitted any information, as I am throwing myself on your mercy ... I haven't got the slightest clue about this.
