Question Pioneer 428XD Audio Out


Prominent Member
I have a trusty old 428XD still going strong (touch wood!) and have a question about the 2 "Audio Out" phono connections at back.

I have a Sky box, another satellite decoder and a DVD all connected via HDMI as well as a DVD Recorder connected via a Scart lead.

I am thinking of getting a Induction Loop system - to use with my hearing aids - and wanted to check a couple of things.....
  • Will these connections output the audio for any of the devices connected to TV?
  • Is the output level fixed i.e. is it affected by the volume setting of TV or not?

Any information would be gratefully received!

Don't know for sure 100% but normally analogue audio outputs from TV's will output at a fixed line level from all sources connected.

I have a loop system which is a good piece of kit except I get a loud interference when connecting to any HD broadcasts
The distributors of the loop say they haver had any other complaint re the system
