    I have just purchased the EPOS ELS 5.1 speakers and wish to know what cable I use to connect the ELS SUB to my ARCAM AVR250 Amp.

    The Amp has an Audio Preout socket (looks like a coax) which I need to connect to the low-level sockets on my Sub (L and R)

    Do I use ordinary phono cables or what? If so how do I connect it to both L and R?

    Just to help here is a close up of the back of the Amp courtesy of a mag:

    and the manual of the EPOS ELS Sub:

    Thankyou for the help :)

    EDIT: I think they I may need a phono to phono cable but I can't be sure. Would I need to split it for the L and R or could I use either?

    Connect to the single socket above the group of six sockets. You use a single phono to phono lead (not stereo). Perhaps you are loooking at the stereo sockets marked LSB and RSB which are not sub outputs, but left stereo back and right stereo back. On the sub input, connect to either L or R socket - it doesn't matter. A pair is provided for amps with no true sub out - not the case in your situation.

    Thanks guys.

    I see that the Amp has a Sub Pre-out and Id need a phone to phone connection. After doin some readin on this site I see that your right Steve on just using L or R (although thanx bargepole - that was the sort of thing I was thinkin of).

    Ive sensibly purchased one of Mr Grant's superb sub cables to do the job :)

    Thanx peeps :smashin:
