Stereo Link
Stereo playback is enabled simply by connecting two TDA-700 units with a single audio cable (phone type).
This function is called “Stereo Link.” As the channel control section is designed to accept stereo signals, connection of sound
sources is needed only at the main unit, thus enabling channel volumes to be centrally controlled on the main unit.
The right-channel signals are output from the speakers in the main unit, while the left-channel signals are output from the
speakers in the sub unit (the other TDA-700).
