Its safe to connect your receiver to amplifier's AC socket / outlet. These units has 2 type of AC sockets, Switched and Unswithced. Switched AC outlet can be On-Off by unit itself.
Feel free to ask any more question.

Lexicon RV-8 wakupe failure


Did you try this....

In the event of a power outage, the RV-8 will display a BROWN
OUT!! PRESS STANDBY message. To turn the unit on, use the
STANDBY button. For more information, see “POWER
MANAGEMENT” on page 3-3....

POWER MANAGEMENT ON, OFF

"Setup" >> "Power Management"

Opens the POWER MANAGEMENT menu, which is used to automatically
put the RV-8 into standby mode during brownouts.
When set to ON, the RV-8 detects low voltage levels or a momentary
loss of power and puts the device in standby mode. In the event of a
power brown out, the RV-8 will display a BROWN OUT!! PRESS
STANDBY message. To turn the unit back on, use the front panel
STANDYBY button.

When set to OFF, the RV-8 will attempt to function during a
momentary power loss, however software settings may become
corrupt and need to be reset.
When the RV-8 is in standby mode, pressing the button turns the
unit on and activates all zones that were active in the previous
operating session.

The RV-8 does not power on.
1. Make sure the rear-panel power switch is set to the | (“on”)
position.
2. Attempt to power on the RV-8 with the front-panel Standby
button and remote control On button.
3. Examine the power cord to ensure a good connection between
the rear-panel AC input connector and the wall outlet.
4. Check the electrical circuit and breaker.

No power on a Pioneer A-77X Amplifier


The unit is probably in protect mode. Do you have any electronics repair experience? If so, we may be able to work through this. Let me know and we will try a few things. You will need a multi-meter at a minimum.

Turntable to reciever connections


check the continuity in your cables. you will need a multimeter or something else to check the cables. the multimeter is about $10 or so. other than that, make sure that your turntable is actually giving output and that the pre amp is both recieving and sending(same with the regular amp. and make sure that the levels are up on everything and the speakers connected properly etc. you probably know this already, but sometimes a good, friendly reminder helps. good luck!!

P-301 onkyo pre-amp


Hi juicer, If you use the switched outlet, then everything will be turned on/off when you operate the preamp power switch. Use the unswitched, then you have to turn off each unit separately. You choose which one you want. It wont matter.

What connection do you intend to use to connect the LBT zx6 to the Onkyo preamp??

How to turn on Kenwood KM-Z1 amp with SL16 input


Have you plugged the amp into the AV9000. Check if the outlet you are using is switched or unswitched. Changing the outlet will most likely do the trick.

A23 AMP


If the amp hums with just speakers connected and no inputs. The problem is internal and Parasound should take care of it under their usually prompt warr. service which is still in force. 5 months sound odd. Was your dealer getting it or was it direct? If not them connect one component at a time, add preamp next(nothing connected to it). If it hums them use a 3-2 ground lifter on the AC cord of the amp and do not connect the wire to the outlet screw. If not them connect each component. If you have cable very often this will cause hum even if you are not listening to cable sound. Use a ground isolator in line with the cable RF input.
