The optical inputs on a home receiver are AC-3 or optical spdif only, not adat. So optical from your desk won't work.
If the amp is not providing discreet signals then either your desk is mixing them or the receiver is, and the receiver is the more likely reason. If you want to pursue it, try disconnecting the desk from the receiver then putting one signal into one input of the receiver, with the other five disconnected. This will tell you who's doing the mixing.
I found it! I am running six discrete analog lines into the receiver, as I had already figured out the digital issue. The missing link was what I just found in the receiver's manual. There's this tiny little asterik
in the Kenwood manual that refers to another section of the input selector
that tells it if the signal is digital or analog.
Once I switched it to analog, it all worked.
I have highlighted this note in red!
Thanks so much for your reply and help!
