This may not be a basic question, but I have no clue as to whether this trigger has any function I could use. It appears that the input is to the Emotiva amp, which makes me think that you turn something else on, and the amp starts up. However, the Emotiva manual says not to switch anything that plugs directly into the wall, whereas their advice is to ALWAYS plug the Emotiva into the wall.
On a broader scale....is there any way to control the Emotiva without manually popping the button to turn it from standby to on? Maybe that's a question for the Emotiva forum, but I know there are a lot of users (and haters!) on here.
The AV receiver I have, the Onkyo TX-SR706, does have a 12V output but it apparently only works in Zone 2. Thanks for the help!
