Hello Rob, ask, the model of your Denon, is DCM-230 or DCM320?, since I do not locate the 230 manual
From what you describe, I would try to replace the interconnected RCA-RCA cable and if it persists, you may have either a false contact on your Denon's RCA output connectors or a problem with a low-signal power supply
On the other hand you comment that it does not read some CD, it is possible that you have the laser reader low, for which it may require an adjustment or the replacement of the same, or need a more effective cleaning, than the one that makes the CD cleaner, I mean to clean the lens of the reader with a lightly moistened isop with alcohol, preferably Isopropyl Alcohol
I hope my comment has served you
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Rob, pregunta, el modelo de tu Denon, es DCM-230 o DCM320?, ya que no ubico el manual del 230
Por lo que describes, probaria reemplazar el cable RCA-RCA de interconexion y si persiste, posiblemente tengas o un falso contacto en los conectores RCA de salida de tu Denon o algun problema en fuente de alimentacion de baja se?al
Por otro lado comentas que no lee algunos CD, es posible que tengas el lector laser bajo, para lo cual pueda requerir de un ajuste o el reemplazo del mismo, o necesite una limpieza mas efectiva, que la que hace el CD limpiador, me refiero a limpiar la lente del lector con un isopo levemente humedecido con alcohol, preferentemente Alcohol Isopropilico
Espero te haya servido mi comentario

Hi, the two equipments are amplifiers, and the Sony is also Receiver, the possible connections are level, low signal and you can leave the "REC OUT" of the Sony and enter AUX in the Sansui, in this way, everything that comes in stereo on the Sony, will exit by rec out and enter the auxiliary on the Sansui
Hola, los dos equipos son amplificadores, y el Sony ademas es Receptor, las conexiones posibles son a nivel, baja se?al y puedes salir del "REC OUT" del Sony y entrar a AUX en el Sansui, de esta manera, todo lo que entra estereo en el Sony, saldra por rec out e ingresara al auxiliar en el Sansui

Hello Judd, we would have to start at the beginning of the chain of elements that allow us to reproduce the disc
first, observe the capsule holder and verify the capsule connections, the standard says looking at the capsule connections, with the pua down, the red wire is the R output of the capsule to the right upper leg of the capsule, the cable white, output L, is connected to the upper left leg, the blue wire, output mass R, to the lower left leg and the green wire, output mass L, to the lower right leg
Having this in order, you should corroborate with the help of a tester, that each position indicated above be repeated in the connections of the arm, for which you would put the tester in continuity position and control that there was no short circuit among the living of the testers. channels in the RCA
This is to check, the connection from the capsule to the RCA connectors
If this is done, the problem persists, try the tray on another computer and see if the failure continues, if you do not have a problem in your phone's pre-phono

Hola Judd, habria que empezar por el principio de la cadena de elementos que permiten reproduccir el disco
primero, observa el portacapsula y verifica las conexiones de la capsula, el estandar dice mirando las conexiones de la capsula, con la pua hacia abajo, el cable rojo es la salida R de la capsula a la pata superior derecha de la capsula, el cable blanco, salida L, va conectado a la pata superior izquierda, el cable azul masa de salida R, a la pata inferior izquierda y el cable verde, masade salida L, a la pata inferior derecha
Teniendo esto en orden, deberias corroborar con el auxilio de un tester, que cada posicion indicada anterior mente se repita en las conexiones del brazo, para lo cual pondrias el tester en posicion de continuidad y controlarias que no hubiese corto circuito entre los vivos de los canales en los RCA
Esto es para comprobar, el conexionado desde la capsula hasta los conectores RCA
Si hecho esto, el problema persiste, prueba la bandeja en otro equipo y fijate si la falla continua, si no lo hace tienes un problema en el pre de fono de tu equipo

No, your television is not equipped to take powered signals. It would have to be raw data, no power.

Sony have used integrated circuit type output modules for lots of years and the best of this type of output has overload/overheat protection but mostly cheaper variants are used that don't tolerate overload very well.

The sound can only come out of the speakers when the amplifier provides the electrical signal that is in reality the processed power supplied by the power supply. The bigger the sound, the more power has to be supplied and processed and while most domestic hi-fi will tolerate a brief overload, because mass market manufacturers don't make things any better than they need to be, lots of heat will very quickly be generated in several parts of the circuit often leading to the sort of failure needing attention from a repair shop.

If you are lucky the cost will be less than the price of a replacement...
