About digital and analog

tor can be used as analog sources. For exam-
ple, when Pioneer head unit with tuner and

Furthermore, audio function of DEQ-P7650
can be used independently for each analog
source, if each analog source is used properly.

log sources can be changed. This is useful
when you use such sources. To input the titles,
