    Hi
    I have a Sony DVP735SE DVD/CD player, Yamaha DSPE800 Amp and Linn pre-amp and power amps for the front speakers.

    I have been experimenting with trying to get the CD sound from the DVD/CD direct to the Linn (so CD does not go through the processor, just DVD) and thought that I could do this by having 2 inputs into the Linn Pre-amp i.e one from the Processor Main Out (for when watching DVD's) and one from the DVD/CD (direct to the Linn pre-amp ).

    I would then select a different source on the pre-amp, depending if I was listening to CD's or watching a DVD.

    I can't seem to do this however. If I run the phono 'CD outs' from the DVD to the Linn then I get no front speaker sound when listening to a DVD.....

    Help?!! Any idea how to get around this?

    The most obvious thing is that you have forgotten to change your pre amp input back to the input where you have your processor attached.

    As in not selecting the 'Aux' (where Processor 'main outs' go) instead of the 'CD' (where the CD in's go) ??

    I thought of that so tried again but still no go.

    try an input other than aux, maybe your aux isnt working right.
