The discussion on PCM when Vince brought up the cd player leads me to another question. I have the cd player hooked up to the tape input using rca cables on the receiver, since for some bizarre reason the cd player/dvd player shares the same input. Since I have the dvd player hooked up optical cable on that input, I'm using the tape input. For some reason, my receivers "clip" indicator comes on when I'm using the cd player. It isn't like this all the time, and it seems to stay on almost solid if I turn the volume up a little. This is the only one that gives me problems though, I've been able to turn it up as loud as I want to otherwise using every other input, my satellite, my dvd player, vcr, etc. Any thoughts?
