    I have been looking for a new stereo and have come accross the Technics SCDV290.

    From the user manual (which I have downloaded) I have seen that there are, what appears to be, 2 phono cable inputs, one labelled VDP (?) and the other VCR. I assume the VCR is to take audio from a VCR, but does this mean it is limited ot only a VCR?

    I would like to use two inputs, one for a mixer (pressumably I would use the vdp for this) and the other for my TV.

    Does anyone know if this is all possible? Are the VDP and VCR inputs essentially the same or are then any differences/limitations with them?

    Many thanks!

    VDP - = Video Disc Player?

    Chances are they are both standard line inputs, just like any aux or tuner input. Does them manual not have a specification section that give the sensitivities of the inputs and maybe also their impedance?

    Yes it does...

    Inputs:
    VCR (EXT) - Sensitivity = 250 mV, Impedance = 15 KΩ
    VDP (AUX) - Sensitivity = 250 mV, Impedance = 15 KΩ

    I have no idea what that means, but seeing as they are the same I guess they both do the same job?

    So are they both just regular line inputs?

    Thanks.

    Yep, exactly. They are standard line inputs, you can use them interchangeably.
