ZMA inputs
01/15/19 at 17:50:21
 
Input Connections
"The ZMA comes standard with single-ended RCA input jacks rated at 2 volts for
maximum power. Transformer balanced XLR inputs are optional and located
directly next to the RCA input jacks on either side. If your amp was built with these
you can use either balanced XLR inputs or RCA inputs but not both at the same
time."

Does this mean don't connect both at the same time or simply don't play both at the same time? I was planning to connect my Roon setup using the XLR and my turntable using RCA, but not play them at the same time.

Thanks for the help!

I think you can have them both connected but only one can play at a given time.  You'll need some kind of switch up stream.

Hi mperdue63,

I was thinking of doing the same, bypassing the preamp..
using the XLR for the DAC and RCA for the turntable..
Just not turning them on at the same time..

Did this setup work..??

Works fine, I've not experienced any problems connecting both.

I wonder why Steve didn't (couldn't?) put a switch on the amp?
