      Inputs and Outputs

      Audio

      • Phono Input: There is an MM phono input on Denon AVR-X2700H and Yamaha RX-V6A with built-in phono stage for connecting the moving magnet cartridge output of the turntable directly to the receiver.
      • Analog Pre-Outs: Yamaha RX-V6A has 2.2 preamplifier outputs which allows you to connect the receiver to the external power amplifier. You may want to use a high quality external amplifier for certain channels, usually for front L/R and center, and use the receiver to power the rest. Also, both receivers have 7 channel processing but have only 7 channel amplifiers, so they need external amplifiers connected to the analog pre-outs in order to reach their maximum speaker configurations.
      • Analog Line Inputs: There are 4 pair of line inputs on Denon AVR-X2700H and 3 pair of line inputs on Yamaha RX-V6A for connecting sources with analog outputs.
      • Digital Inputs: 2 optical inputs and 1 coaxial input are available on Denon AVR-X2700H and 1 optical input and 1 coaxial input are available on Yamaha RX-V6A for digital audio connections.
      • Headphone Output: There is a 6.3 mm (1/4") headphone output jack on the front panel of each receiver.
