Onkyo 3007 12v trigger for Zone 1?

I received an Emotiva XPA-3 for Christmas from my lovely wife and son. I'm using it to power my front 3 speakers and leaving my AVR (Onkyo TX-NR3007) to power the 4 surrounds. Everything is hooked up and it sounds great.

However, I can't see if/how it is possible to generate a 12V trigger from the AVR to turn the XPA-3 on/off. It has 12v triggers for Zone 2 and Zone 3, but those can only be stereo systems. Am I missing something, or do I need to turn the XPA-3 on/off manually?

Regards,

Hello,
I am pretty sure that you are correct about the Triggers. When I get Home, I will double check this, but I am almost positive that is the case.

It may be that you need to go into your setup menu and re-assign the triggers and to what sources will activate the triggers. My brother in-laws Marantz is this way, i know 2 totally different AVR's but that could also be the case with the Onkyo.

That's a good idea. i don't remember seeing that option anywhere in the menus or the manual, but I'll spend some time with it tonight.

Hello,
I am almost positive that this is a feature only offered on the Integra version of the 3007. I do hope I am mistaken though. Along with the extended warranty, I believe 12 Volt Triggers are another thing Onkyo places on the Integra units to differentiate what are all but identical models being sold at higher pricepoints and through a totally different distribution channel.
Cheers,
JJ

Hmmm... I may have to rig something...

I'll check and report findings tonight.

Hello,
Please do as I use outboard amplification on all channels and it would be handy to have it synced. In truth, I never turn off my amplifiers, but do turn off the AVR and DVD Players.
Cheers,
JJ

Off of the OP's topic JJ but why is that you do not shut down your outboards, i have heard of this before as many people say it is to keep the Caps charged, just curious if that is your reasoning too. Thanks, Bambino.

Hello,
You nailed it amigo. I have done this with all of my Amplifiers for well over a decade. I realize everyone has their own regiment, but I do think the more damage is done from startup when using components daily when constantly turning them off and on.

I do turn off the TV and BDP's when away and asleep, but do not turn off the amps unless I am going to be out of town for an extended period. I also leave my TV on if going to be away for less than a couple of hours as it is a Lamp based Microdisplay and power cycling is rough on Lamps.
Cheers,
JJ
