    What if any are the pros/cons of plugging in a DVD/CD power cord into the jacks at the back of a receiver?

    I have a Marantz 6200 and have never used them and was considereing it.

    I don't think there is any advantage for you using the receiver's outlet unless (A), you've run out of regular outlets or (B), the receiver's outlet is switched and you want the device to come on with the receiver. I plugged a cooling fan into the switched outlet in the back of my Yamaha reciever. When the receiver comes on so does the cooling fan.

    I had my DVD player plugged into a switched outlet on my receiver, on the theory that I wouldn't have to bother to turn it off. Problem was, if I left the receiver off too long, the DVD player would lose its memory settings for things like DTS output and need to be re-configured.
