LInk Adapter Sound drops in Aux In
My objective is to be able to play CDs from my Sony 5 disc player to all my SoundTouch speakers. It seems to me that the way to do this is to connect a SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter using the Aux In socket.
I have two Adapters. One of them (Adapter A) is connected via Audio Out to a set of B&O speakers & works fine. The other (Adapter B) was connected via Audio Out to a Yamaha receiver and when I connected a source via SoundTouch had been having problems with the output - the sound dropped out, then after a few seconds, then came back on for a little while before dropping out again.
I recently bought a Soundbar 300 so no longer needed the Adapter B/Yamaha setup.
But now I have been trying to connect my CD player to to Adapter B so I can rebroadcast my CDs to all my Soundtouch speakers. A direct connection from the CD player to Adapter doesn't work, presumably because there's no amplifier. Of course, the CD player works through my Yamaha, but unfortunately, the Yamaha does not have a direct output that will accommodate the Adapter except for a headphone jack.
So I tried the headphone jack by connecting my CD player to the Yamaha, selecting CD player, and after first making sure that setup worked with my headphones, connected the Yamaha headphone jack to Adapter B Aux In & got the same kind of problem as I was having with the Audio Out - the sound comes in & out. Only it's more frequent. Then I tested that setup using Adapter A & got the same problem. So it's evidently not a problem with the hardware.
For what it's worth, when I connect the Yamaha to my TV using the Yamaha's HDMI output it goes through to my SB300 via the HDMI ARC link with no problem (while continuing to play through my other speakers connected to the Yamaha). So I can play my CD player output to the SB300. But I can't see any way to rebroadcast the sound from the SB300 to the rest of my SoundTouch speakers.
I have not explored the possibility that I there's an adapter that will allow me to use the Yamaha's HDMI output to link to the Adapter.
If anyone knows of some other workaround I could try, I'd be happy to learn!
But in the meanwhile, does anyone know how to make the Adaptor's Aux In function correctly?
