    I have just purchased this 2nd hand. R-925RDS.
    With ref: connections, there is a pre out stage.
    the manual says "when you do not use the front main in and pre out jacks, always connect these jacks with the links supplied"

    I have no links?

    I aim to use just this amp and hence all 5 of its power outputs.

    Do I need to short these links?

    The only preout I may use is the sub as I have a rel q100e.

    Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    Sprout

    PS any advice on this amp on choice of optical or coax being best to couple to my Pioneer 717 would be useful.

    Yes, you'll need to short these connections (individually ;) ) - The 925 should have come with a pair of fairly chunky links for this purpose.

    These links look like thick bits of solid metal wire bent into a U shape. Each end of the U fits into the middle of each phono socket, don't be looking for two short phono leads, they're just 2 mm thick bits of bare wire.

    A coax cable should aways be used over an optical because it carries an electrical signal. Using an optical cable requires the dvd player to convert the signal to an optical signal and then the amp needs to convert it back to an electrical signal. Too much room for error for my liking.
