Great receiver and really beatiful design. High power with 110W and 3 speakers pair and 2 phono imputs. A real monster with great sound.

re: 9090

Just had my 9090 redone. Channels were going out, i had been just playing radio and
CDs. Now i have added a turntable after many years and two more speakers. I have
four now, the problem is that now i only get sound coming out of the two right
speakers when i turn on phono for the turntable. The last time i hooked up a
turntable i ony had two speakers. I think hookup is correct i'd hate to have to
take receiver, turntable and speakers in if i did it wrong. Any suggestions??
