    Title says it. I lost my jumpers for my 520. If I take the cables that were going to the amp and use them as jumpers will that work?


    Im more worried about the grounds on the current cables and using them like that. If anyone has a soulution that would be great.

    No need for anything special, any interconnect cable will work in place of the lost jumpers.

    I have NEVER owned a receiver w/o pre-out and power-amp ins, and have used all manner of interconnects over the years.

    There are even some that propose you should replace the jumpers with real cables anyways. I am not one of them. But I have read it a few different places recently.

    I've done it both ways. It didn't seem to make much difference, so cables should work fine. Cables may be easier to locate than the little jumpers too.
