Yes, you can have output signal at tape monitor output terminal and can be hooked to any amp.

How do I hook up 2 preamps for the front right and left 1 for each channel on a Marantz SR6007? Can I even do it or am I just allowed 1 preamp for the fron right and left channel?

Hi Mark,
One can hook-up as many peamps as desired to the SR6007 either as sources or destinations. How to connect external preamps to the SR6007 depends on what you wish to achieve.
The SR6007 already has its own internal preamps.
You could, if you are not careful, burn the AVRs input circuitry by adding external preamps as "sources". Also, not much improvement in SQ could be gained by external preamps connected to the SR6007's preouts becuase any signals that come out of these have already been processed (or distorted?) by the SR6007s internal preamps.

Yamaha ax470 amplifier, power amp works but nothing else

This unit has main in, preout jacks. When you say the amp works, are you referring to the amp turning on? There will be no sound out of the amps, if there is no preout. Are you aware that there needs to be jumpers between the main in and preout jacks? If you don't have the jumpers, no problem; just use a stereo patch cable between the jacks above.

How to wire a numarkdm1600x amp

Power amplifiers usually has only single input RCA input left "white" right "red". The preamp has plenty of input and output jacks, the proper connection is the one labeled "PREOUT" which usually located far from the group of rca jacks "PHONO,TAPE MON. REC OUT" etc. try it, it doesn't harm anything

Yamaha rx-797 w/Yamaha ge-60 eq utilizing prein/main out ..and ad

It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

Yamaha Dsp-A1000 5 ch amp Bought a used amp will be hooked to an awia reciever and speakers also have two subwoofers need help to install correctly witch connections to use

if you wanted to use your receiver as your controller and source then try to find out the receivber has got a bridge (jumper) between the pre-amp stage and the power amp stage. if your receiver does not have that, then you can just connect your receiver tape record out to one of your DSP inputs. subwoofers, the DSP has got a sub woofer out connector. you can use that (RCA type) to your sub woofers. put in series because DSP has got only one output for sub. or, you can connect your subs directly to the mains speakers, parallel connections. maybe one sub to your left and the other to your right channel.

1974 marantz model 2325 reciever and want to hook up a powered subwoofer ?

Hi jdwoomer

Your amp has PreOut and Main In RCA connectors on the rear, you could make up an adaptor cable (or buy one) to split the post vol control signal at this point, and then use line level from here to drive the sub.


Most powered subs have a speaker "high level" input, where the sub "sniffs" off signal from your speaker output. When setup like this the speakers and amp connect to the back of the Sub.

Either way, you can do it... Marantz were making nice gear back then... a collectable these days :) Any questions, I am here to help.

Yamaha v-663 reciever

Most amps will only power two sets of speakers direcrly hooked to amp (A&B). If you want audio throughout the house, I would recommend a PA system set up with individual room volume controls

Bose 901 equalizer

Hi Mark, had a look for a manual on your Yamaha, but not got to one as yet. Does it have any RCA connections on the back marked as preout prein? best place to put the 901 EQ is in line with L and R front channels at this preout prein point.

Some amps DO NOT HAVE IT. If our does not, then you could connect it in the tape loop, tape out(rec) to input on the EQ. and the output of the EQ connected to tape in(play), but connected like this, the EQ would affect the tone across all channels(unless you are just running a stereo rig, then this way works great!!) Try this and you may just have solved you problem anyway.
