Hi,

I have decided to buy the Onkyo 708 and would like to know how to trigger an external Amp from Zone 1. I have an Emotiva XPA-5 and will use the pre-outs on the 708 to utilise the power from the Amp and was wondering how to trigger the Amp?

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

What is the trigger output labled? You may have to get a switching power strip that turns power on to the other outlets when the one senses a surge in power.:dontknow:

Mike,

I have the 807 and have the same problem with the lack of zone 1 trigger. It does look like the 708 has a zone 2 trigger though. On my AVR, I setup my Logitech universal remote to sequence in the zone 3 (no real reason I didn't use zone 2) trigger by learning from the original remote. It seems to work just fine and I have never had any issues with it. Of course, if you're using zone 2 or don't have a universal remote, this won't work. Good luck.
