Equalizer installation

 

Jose Torres
How can I install an equalizer to my new AV Receiver. The eq. has four pair of analog RCA for eq. and for tape drive. The receiver has only two pair of analog input/ouput jacks (for CDR or MD).

What receiver do you own?
 

I have just purchase a new receiver sony str de675 and i wish to know whether i can connect an equalizer.

First I would recomend that you consult your user's manual that should have been in the box when you purchased your Sony reciever. Your CDR and MD in/out jacks should not be used for an EQ. Your EQ process should take place after everything else in the signal chain is completed and right before your final amplification. If you have no designated in/out for an EQ then you may have to find some other way of processing the signal. Perhaps a pre-amp may be needed in order to bring all of your signals together to then run through your EQ. Sometimes some amps have pre-out/in RCA jacks. These can often be used for an EQ.
 

thanks for the advice. Actually the sony receiver doesn not have a pre-amp and i am thinking about connecting the equalizer between my Cd player and the input of the receiver. Is this possible?

Una de las razones por las que yo (y no sólo yo) adoro los conjuntos de previo/etapa de potencia separados es la posibilidad de conectarles un amplificador entre ambos componentes.

En los viejos tiempos del estéreo (uf, estoy hablando en pasado) sólo los amplificadores integrados de gama más bien alta tenían (bueno, sin pasarnos, siguen teniendo) un "bucle" entrada/salida entre la sección del previo y la de potencia, precisamente para conectarle un ecualizador (e incluso algún componente "exótico", como un reverb de muelles , un expansor, un compresor-expansor...).

Piensa que tu receptor es multicanal y los ecualizadores son estéreo (o mono, en cuyo caso hay que conectar dos, uno por canal). Así que para ecualizarle una señal estéreo (MD, CD, Vinilo, incluso Cassette) tiene que venir ecualizada ANTES de entrar al receptor AV, porque luego ya no va a haber manera.

Así que yo te recomiendo que conectes tu CD y las demás fuentes digitales o bien a un simple selector de entrada pasivo, o a un preamplificador (ya sé que teniendo un receptor integrado operativo ésto parece un tanto redundante, tanto conceptuelmente como cuando lo veas en el mueble, pero...). Este último sistema debería der mejor que el primero, que tiene la ventaja de ser más barato y más simple.

En cualquier caso, piensa que los ecualizadores mínimamente "buenos" tiene una entrada de nivel de línea y ADEMÁS un bucle IN/OUT pàra conectarle un grabador (ésto viene de los tiempos del cassette y el grabador de cinta abierta), lo cual te dará más posibiliaddes de conexión si tienes una grabadora de audio del tipo que sea (CD, MD)y quieres usarla con tu equipo... que para eso está.

The EQ is best installed in a audio tape loop that has a dedicated Tape Monitor button. My Denon 1803 has this labeled as "MD\Tape Mon". Your receiver may lable it as "Tape-2" or something along those lines. Pressing the Tape Monitor button sends the current source through any external processor connected to the tape loop.

This loop was originally designed to allow you to "Monitor" a tape AS YOU RECORDED from the source without interupting the actual signal to the tape deck (3 head cassette decks and reel-to-reels). I once had a Denon HX24 3-head cassette deck and the tape monitor allowed me to trim the bias on each recording by listening to the source and the tape - back and forth, back and forth by repeatedly pressing the tape monitor button. It also made tape head azmith ajustments easier since I could quickly compare the souce and tape. Signal processor manufacturer quickly started using this loop for EQs, Reberbs etc.

The reason this is done is to allow the processor to process the audio from all sources. Without this loop, you would have to plug and unplug your sources one at a time to proccess the audio. With the Tape Monitor button activated, you can still switch to the Tuner, DVD, VCR etc. The audio just before the Volume knob, tone controls and DSP will be processed. The Audio moving around inside the receiver is NOT processed. This prevents you from screwing up tape to tape and source to tape audio (DSPs get confused if one channel is set even a little different than the other by an EQ).

It's just like a pre-amp out except its just before the volume control instead of after. This usually producess less noise.

If you want audio to be processed BEFORE it gets to a tape deck, MD or VCR, connect them to the tape loop of the EQ. Note the EQ itself will have a "Tape Mon" for listening to the tape deck.

Hope this helps.

i have the sony 675, and i got my eq too work with my STB(so i can listen too Music Choice) and it also works with my cd player. movies is another story, it stays digital. this is how i did it with my AUIDIOSOURCE EQ 100.

CD-AUDIO OUT into AUDIO IN on EQ
TAPE OUT on EQ into CD AUDIO into RECEIVER

STB(Cable-Box)AUDIO OUT into VIDEO IN on EQ
MAIN OUT on EQ into VIDEO1 on RECEIVER

then i simply switch my video-audio switch back and forth depending on the source, CD or STB.
movies on Cable or dvd's are strictly digital.
this works fine. i dont understand why someone would have too connect and disconnect unless they have an eq that only has tapein-tapeout.

forgot one thing on my last post.
you also have too make sure the sony 675 is switched to Analog or Optical.
hope this helps.

I have a Boss AVA-1208S parametric equalizer. I would like to know if after connecting the EQ to the head unit if I can run the output straight to the speakers or if I have to run it to an amp first and then to the speakers.

i have a kenwood reciever the 6050 and it doesnt have the tape two monitor and i was wandering how to hook my eq up to it so that it will monitor all my inputs except the one that it is running into the reciever on
 

Anonymous
what kind of eq do you have? also, what ins and outs do you have on your eq? my brother has an onkyo and he has an older kenwood eq that has tape in-tape out.this is how we set his up.

STB AUDIO OUT (Y ADAPTOR) ONE CABLE RUNNING TOO HDTV AND OTHER TOO RECEIVER (Y ADAPTOR) INTO TAPE MONITOR IN ON EQ.
CD AUDIO OUT IS SAME AS ABOVE.

TAPE MONITOR OUT ON EQ GOES TO VIDEO 1 AUDIO IN ON HIS RECEIVER. ONLY ONE SOURCE SHOULD BE ON AT A TIME.OR YOU COULD ADD MORE MALE Y'S AND GO TAPE MONITOR OUT TO YOUR PREFERRED SOURCE. YOU WOULD STILL HAVE TO HAVE ONE SOURCE OFF

Would appreciate any assistance with connecting these old components correctly. I don't have any of the manuals and I wanted to get it right.
Thanks in advance.

I have a Kenwood High speed DC intergrated amp model KA-701. I would like to connect a spextro acoustics equalizer to the Kenwood. I have no manuals. The Kenwood has no EQ connections. It has photo 1 & 2, tuner, AUX,TAPE A-B. The spectro has Main, 2 main in/out, 2 tape in/out. Can someone please help me figure out how to do this. I would like to run the tape deck through the equalizer, if that is the only thing i can do.

Hi ...
I have the Yamaha HTR5660 and the damn thing didnt come with a Tape Monitor feature. It doesnt even have a Tape feature. Leave aside the oversight or purposeful pushing of these recvr manufacturers to make us go for more expensive sound because of the crappy sound these produce, (my earlier cheap Technics receiver gave BETTER sound than this HTR5660) is there any way at all to attach an EQ to this rcvr ?
If not, I am planning on returning this and going for the Onkyo SR510, which seems to feature a Tape (NOT Tape Monitor) feature...can some audio expert tell me whether this is the same ? Whether this will enable me to listen via the equalizer while listening to FM/CD ? I am confused because it doesnt say 'Tape Monitor' it says just 'Tape'.
It also has the same no. of jacks needed for a Tape Monitor...4. (2 in + 2 out)...

its simple. by the way, im anonymous that posted on the sony 675 and my bro's onkyo.
lets say you want to hook up a cd player to your receiver. you hook up audio out on your cd player to audio in on your receiver.
the equalizer is in the middle. you hook up your audio out on your cd player to main in (tape in)
whatever its called on your eq. then from main out or tape out, you go into cd audio in. same goes for everything else. it all depends on your eq ins and outs and your in and outs on your receiver. some eq's like mine have a video/audio switch and on the back you have video-in/video/out , audio-in/audio-out. just switch between each one. just like on and off.
think about it. YOU'RE LOOPING THRU YOUR EQ. you just dont have tape monitor. i even have my computer running thru my equalizer. had to buy a ground loop isolator to get rid of the hum. great piece of equipment at radio shack for only 15 bucks. hope this helps

How do I connect an equalizer that has in the back 4 pairs of connections? 1 pair is tape playback, 1 for record out, 1 for in and 1 for out. The main receiver has 4 pairs of connections (2 for in, 2 for out)Please help me with my question. Thanks.

what are you trying to hook up? whatever it is hook up your AUDIO OUT on your SOURCE to IN on your EQUALIZER then OUT from EQUALIZER into IN on RECEIVER. remember, its like hooking up cd or whatever straight to your receiver but you're going thru your EQUALIZER first.
AND DONT FORGET TO SELECT *~ANALOG~* FOR SOURCE BEING USED WITH EQUALIZER.
hope this helps.
i love to tweak my music and i just sat behind my stereo rack and unplugged everthing until i figured it out. remember that you might have to go 2 channel if using a sub, depending of course on the size of your front speakers.

Hello all,
I recently bought a pre-owned DENON PMA2000R (1st generation) and I know try to connect my old EQ to it. I have tried several things only getting it to work with the tape as a source.

The EQ is a Fisher EQ 870, It only has contacts for tape in and tape out. The line IN and line OUT is connected directly to the EQ without having the possibility to remove it (like a power cord).

On the DENON I have TAPE 1 and TAPE 2. I don't have a pre-amp.

I don't have any tape monitor on the front but REC OUT where I can choose TAPE 1->2 (and other sources as well of course).

When reading the EQ-manual, it says that there are only 2 main ways to connect the EQ:
1a. Between a pre-amp and the main-amp if separate machines.
1b. If integrated amp, if there is a a signal processor connector pair (i.e. a separator between the pre-amp and the main-amp) this can be choosen.
1a and 1b is for just enhancing the listening.
2. By connecting the tape to the eq and the eq to tape 1 on amp.
This choice is for recording.

I tried 2, and as said above, it works for playing tapes but no more signal source. I try to push all the buttons on the EQ, nothing happens.

I thought that 1b was equivalent to using TAPE 2.

What have I done wrong? Or could it be the case that this EQ is not possible to use with the DENON.

I appreciate any ideas, hints etc. In the meanwhile, I will continue trying.

Thanks
RW

Hello all,

I read the instructions from Derek 3 more times and I understood what was wrong!!!

I had to set the input selector to TAPE 2 and the rec out to the ACTIVE signal source!!!!

So, disregard my previous post and thanks for all good inputs!

(The next step is to figure out how to connect a signal processor so I can simulate an HT with 5 channels)
Thanks
RW

Actually you can still use the EQ with the HTR5650 and get the sound quality you desire. There are two ways actually. First way is to use the REC out from the HTR and connect it to the IN on your EQ. Next, if you want all SIX channels then simply split the output from the EQ to the 6.1 Input on the receiver. Now you have all six channels sharing the analog stereo signal. Downside is you are in 6.1 mode so you cannot use all of the cool surround effect built in to the receiver.
Your other option is to go into diagnostic mode. To do this press the 6.1 and stereo buttons together at the same time and then press standby(while the unit is off) Now you will be in diag mode which will give you the opportunity to really dial in the receiver. At this point you can choose surround settings for the 6.1 input(auto is best). When you watch a DVD it will default to the 5.1 standard and still enable you to manually produce a surround effect. Kinda a pain in the a$$ but is the only option really.

Hope Im not too late.

Does your stereo receiver have a phono input, or are you using an aux. input for the turntable? If you are using an aux. input, to put it in layman terms--it doesn't have enough "oomph" to increase the phono signal sufficiently for the preamp section to amplify the signal frpm the phono cartridge enough for the amp section of your receiver. The aux inputs are generally used for VCR's, cd players, tuners, etc--not turntables.

You would have to buy a phono stage amp to plug into the aux on the back of the receiver and then plug your turntable into the phono amp.

Also, since there are two basic kinds of phono cartridges--mm (moving magnet) and mc (moving coil) you need to buy a phono amp that is either compatible with both types, or at least with the type you are using--which is probably a moving magnet cartridge.

So let us know if your receiver has a phono input or not. If it doesn't--that is undoubtedly your problem.

Okay...let me throw some more into the mix...

Pioneer 9500 EQ, Pioneer RG1 Dynamic Processor, Pioneer SR-202 Reverberation Amplifier to a Pioneer SX-3700 Receiver? There are two tape monitors on the reciver...two on the reverb...one on the processor...and one on the EQ.

I'm assuming that I daisy-chain everything through my receiver's tape monitor A? I'll have my reel to reel in tape monitor B on the receiver? Where to daisy-chain? On the devices tape monitors? Where would one add two cassette decks to the mix?

Wire, wires, everywhere...and not a note of sound to hear!

I was wondering if someone could tell me if this connection is going to work with my equalizer. Best buy said it should work in a chain but I want to make sure. If I could connect my 5 disk changer cd player to the equalizer and then the equalizer to the reciever in the cd port (red and white). this is pretty much the only way to do this with my setup. Let me know what ya think

There ok, if you can get them to talk. Not even half way into the conversation he was trying to get me to buy an installation for no reason. I was trying to ask how to hook this up. That was after I called back three times because they didnt know how to direct my call to the audio department. But do you think this will work without everything being plugged into the reciever?

dbx eqs seem to be the answer. one connection for left in, one for left out. one connection for right in, one for right out. dbx 215 or dbx231 $150.00

Chimp, this is still a graphic EQ., as compared to a good parabolic unit. However, the XLR is a good thing. Unfortunately, this EQ is using circuitry for the babance, not a seperate transformer.
Give and take.
Behringer offers a wider selection at this price point, I think.

my experience says you can equalize a cd player etc, before connecting to a receiver. I don't think you can equalize the sound from the receiver alone. my 2 cents!
think: the equalizer has no speaker connections. only the amplifier section of the receiver connects to the speakers. only input upstream of the receiver can be equalized.
correct me if I'm wrong.

I have a Fisher system. I need help connecting my eq to it please. All components are Fisher.
The eq, Fisher eq-885 has a line in right and left, a line out right and left, a tape rec. out right and left, and a P.B. right and left.
The Amp, Fisher CA-890, has tape rec. out right and left, tape P.B. right and left, along with the various other inputs for the rest of the components ie, phono, cd, tuner etc. The amp does not have the tape 2 option.
The tape deck, Fisher CR-W56, has line in (record)right and left, and line out (playback)right and left. Please help me make sense out of all this. For the moment I have it looped in with my CD player but I'd like for it to work with all the components. Your help is deeply appreciated. Thank you.

The EQ is looking for line level signals to distort, er I mean "adjust" and you are suggesting inserting it into a phono level signal. It may not cause any damage to anything but the question I have is why you would want to??
