    Hi,

    I'm looking to power up my Lumagen scaler at the same time as my Denon amp. I note that the Denon has a switched power outlet on the rear. It looks like my two point shaver connector, but that does not fit.

    Does anyone where I can can source a connector that I can wire into this socket? If not, do you know what this connector is called?

    Cheers, Lee

    Hi,

    "Indeed you are powerful, as the Emporer has forseen"

    Could I connect the earth from the 3 pin IEC going into the power supply of the Lumagen, to signal earth on the back of the Denon amp? Also, can you advise why the Shuko would not work, are there any other alternatives?

    Cheers, Lee

    I don't know enough about electrics to answer that one but I'd be a bit wary do something like that myself.

    The earthed Schuko plugs are round so won't fit into the socket on the back of the Denon. The only plugs that fit it are the flat two pin plugs with no earth connection.
