Help with an Akai AM-U3
Hi first post,sorry if its a bit of a ramble.
I have a large collection of flac files stored on a pc,the software used for playback is kodi.
The present set-up line is out from a m-audio sound card to a pair of Nad 302s,
I have connected the amps so that all audio inputs go into what I call the master amp the second amp I call the slave.From a tape out on the master,the audio is fed into a tape in one the slave and when the Tape 1 Monitor switch is depressed the amps are linked with manually set volume controls
the audio is then sent to a pair of bi-wired B&W speakers.
The problem I have is though I have set the pc's and the software volume to 100% the amps acceptable volumn output is 50%,but if I play a cd at that level its bloody loud.
The Nads are pre remote control so there have been times when Ive nearly blown my windows out by forgetting to trim the settings.
To get over this I picked up the Akai to use as a pre-amp/volumn control from the soundcard,to confirm the amp is working I connected a cd player and speakers to check everything is ok which it is,what I cannot work out is :I have connected the soundcard to the Akai repeated the test which works,but I cannot send a signal out from the amplifier using the tape loops.
I have tried online searching for a user manual with no joy and Im confused if output is possible or if Im just pressing the wrong sequence of buttons.
Any help please.
