How do you go about using your headphone amp with multiple devices? - Page 2

TX-NR809

 

I've done some searching/reading...and I'm just not seeing a viable alternative.  With my current setup I don't think there's a way to hook it up and just have it work for everything.  Guess I'm going to have to pick one and live with it.

I also don't seem to get any sound at all from the other suggested method.

For using the little dot as a preamp, make sure headphones aren't plugged in at the same time. And that it's on. Should be obvious, but I gotta say it just in case...

When I try to use it as a preamp as you describe, I have to say it scares me a little bit.

First there is an audible buzz through the speakers, and 2nd if I tap on the headphone speakers, it comes out through the main speakers.

It makes me hesitant to go any further.

I guess what I could do is get a USB sound card for the PC with RCA outs, and use splitters at both the turntable phono pre amp out and the headphone amp in and connect both sources that way. I think that would work.
