    Hi all
    Just bought a new sony STR-DA1200ES which has only 1 sub phono out, i have a Rel strata which has twin phono inputs.
    Question is how do i connect them up (can i just use a phono 'Y' spliter into the amp then run the twin leads to the sub)?
    Thanks
    Robert

    THanks for the quick reply, the reason i asked was the Rel having the twin input i thought it had to have it connected for some reason .
    Single phono it is then
    Thanks

    I think on the older REL subs (i.e. most of the ST series) that the two line level ins have different input sensitivities, and that the RED (right) channel has a +12dB boost. I think REL suggest using the white (left) channel in their manuals.
