Hi all,

I'm looking for some assistance if possible with my home cinema set up
I currently have

Amp: Arcam FMJ AVR550 AV Receiver
Power Amp: Project AMP box S

Front – 3x B&W CWM Cinema 7 in wall speakers
Pillar Speakers – 4x B&W CWM663 in wall speakers
Ceiling Speakers – 2 x B&W CCM664 Sr ceiling speakers
Subwoofers: REL T9i and T7i subwoofers

1. Is there any way with the Arcam to be able to split the sounds coming through the speakers, if possible id like to be able to play my xbox through my Amp and during some games listen to music - via my innous music streamer through the speakers. is there any way to split the sounds coming via my arcam.

2. Is there any way to link my arcam amp to be able to use this via voice activate it via my amazon echos. i have also recently bought a logitech harmony so not sure if this would be able to link together to make this work

Hi. With number 1 if you get the menu up, go to the input config and audio source. You can select there whether you want the audio to come from HDMI / digital or analog, so when using the Xbox you could switch that to whichever input you want to use for audio.

I'm not sure about number 2. I use the harmony and hub with my AVR550, and I have a couple of echo dots in the house, but I have never attempted to link them.
