A:AnswerHi JimDog, yes, the set up you have in mind will work great with this receiver. You may check this link for more information on this unit: https://docs.sony.com/release//SPECS/STRDH190_mksp.pdf Thanks, -Mark
A:AnswerMost, or at least many, active subwoofers have their own built-in crossover and inputs to which you can connect your full-range speaker outputs from this receiver. They also have speaker outputs to pass on the receiver output to your full-range speakers. The SA-CS9 appears to have these typical connections so if anyone else has this question, you should be good.
A:AnswerThere are four RCA red and white connector
inputs and one phono input on the back that use analog RCA red and white. There’s a 3.5mm input on the front panel for iPhone or iPod hookup. Very clean setup. I have my iPhone connected via RCA to the back for the best sound quality. You can also play music through smartphones using the Bluetooth connection. However the analog RCA connectors will give you the best sound quality. No digital inputs.
A:AnswerI keep my receiver in a closed cabinet and the Bluetooth works through the cabinet and through a wall to get to my phone outside on the patio about 40 feet away. I’ve been really satisfied with this so far.
