So I have had my Denon AVR 3801 for years and love it. I moved to Nuevo Vallarta Mexico this fall and when I hooked up the Denon one side produce no sound. People I talked to said it would be too expensive to fix.
So since my new condo it all cement and running speaker is difficult I bought a Yamaha wireless RX-V485.
It works ok but turned out not to have a pre-amp for my Rega Record player and I have hundreds of albums.
So I bought a cheap Rega mini A2D pre-amp and I had a system. Doesn’t have the punch of the Denon but it works.
So then a friend told me about Ling Audio in Puerto Vallarta. So I took the Denon in and waited 3 weeks over Xmas expecting an estimated on the repair. They call and said it was fixed! $900 Pesos! $45 dollars.
So now I like the ability to play Spotify so I want to have the Yamaha send the three front channels to the Denon to power my NHT center and NHT Four Speaker.
But I don’t see and pre-outs on the Yamaha RX-V485! How can I do this? Do I keep the Rega Mini or use the Yamaha as the pre amp??? I guess I got what I paid for on the Yamaha as it was cheap!
Am I better to use the Denon as the receiver and pre amp to the Yamaha for wireless speakers? Where do I plug in the Yamaha?
