    Sorry for the dumb question but I have googled it can’t seem to figure it out. My situation is that I have been looking for a solution to some decent audio recently without having separate amps and speakers for £500. I recently auditioned the Audio Pro Addon C10 and was very pleased with it...

Hooked that up to an AUX entry in the 6000A and indeed, works. The sound is different though...
