How to connect discman to amplifier?


Unregistered guest
Hey there!
I recently purchased a TEAC integrated stereo amplifier.
I plan to hook it up to my Sony Discman.
The question is: should I connect the Discman through it's "line out" or through the "headphone out"?
Does it have anything to do with this switch on the amp labelled "Source Direct"?

Please help.
Muchos Gracias.

Sony sells for $5.49 on their Sony Style site adapter cables to connect the Discman or Walkman to inputs on the back of your receiver.

You can probably get the same adapters from Radio Shack for much less, as normally the Discman has miniplugs that need to be adapted to RCA plugs to input into a receiver.

The Discman's line outs can be connected to any open inputs on the back of the receiver, with the exception of phono inputs, which have a different load.
