    I need help with connecting the following:
    Legacy Stereo equipment:
    Sansui Int Amp AU-g-99X
    Pioneer R-to-R RT-707
    Sony Stereo cd
    Turntable mmf (not supported by A/V Recv'r)

    Using A/V Recv'r NAD T743 w/5.1

    Complicating problem is I want to use Bose 901/s for L-R front speakers w/equilizer issue. (Mirage Omnistats for rear and will later add Subwoofer.)

    I think I need to reconnect legacy stuff to Sansui amp and connect amp to A/V but now sure how. A/V preamp out to what?

    Any help appreciated.

    Not sure I remmeber how the 901's work...

    All components to the NAD T743, take the L/R front pre-amp output and connect that to the old Sansui 2 channel amp and then connect those to the 901's... Not sure where / how the 901 specific EQ fits into the mix though. But I would assume the sam eexact way it is implemented now, only using the pre-amp output from the NAD for it's only source on the old amplifier.

    Where on the Sansui amp do you connect the pre-amp cables? What phono conection do I use: AUX, CD, etc/?

    Let me try to look up the Sansui amp....

    I thought it was a power amp only, thos einputs do not sound like that is the case.

    I guess either Aux / CD....

    I looked and it does not appear to have standard power amp inputs. I suppose you use the tape loop for the 901 EQ thingie??

    Thanks, I'll try pre-amp out to aux in. But, I think with signal coming from A/V I'll have to drive the Bose front speakers with the Sansui amp, not the NAD receiver.

    Messing with this: I connected to amp-in on Receiver from Sansui and got unbelieveable speaker amlification with no volume control. So...deductively, signal cannot go from amp to receiver.

    Reciver to amp definetly.. I tried to convey that.

    That is an odd amp with no true power amp intputs though.
