Question about Pioneer GR-470 Home Equalizer

I need to connect my turntable to my reciever via Pioneer GR-470 pre-amp

What I have is a Pioneer PL-S30 turntable, a Pioneer GR-470 pre-amp, and an RCA Prologic receiver. The problem is, the turntable and receiver are not compatible, and I have found a newer preamp (Pyle Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier) online for 20 bucks, that specifically addresses this issue, but wondering if the one I already have will do the same thing. The EQ has EQ and tape in/out jacks on the back.

The problem is, the receiver does not have a line in for phono, so I need the pre-amp. It has no in/out for EQ, or a "tape mon" button on the front. The receiver has tape in/out jacks on the back, and the front does have a "tape" button, but it only says tape and not tape mon. I am not sure if that is even the same thing.

I already have the receiver connected to my hard drive (via the cd in/out jacks), to play music through, but now I need to burn vinyl onto cd, and I have read the usb ready turntables have a pretty inferior sound and capability for editing. Any suggestions?

No need for phono, you can go to radio shack and get a selection switch to make things easier.

HI, bought a Kenwood stereo full automatic turntable system but no manual and nothing on line. Would appreciate help please with Trio stereo graphic EQ GE-600 Thank you.

First off, you can NOT run the turntable straight through the EQ.
It needs a preamp and needle EQ of it's own first.
Some home amps allow you to loop between the Pre and the Amp, THAT is where you would install the EQ.
You can also NOT just run it into a mixer, it needs that Pre before.
Good luck.

Hooking up EQ to RECIEVER for a TECHNICS MODEL SH-8017

You'll need 4 connections total. On my integrated amp, I connected the four connections to all Line In and Line Out ports. And the other ends into the tape 2/EXTRA ports respectively.

How do I connect my bose equalizer to my pioneer amplifier

The manual is at

In any question regarding connections the exact models of all parts in the scenario should be defined.

"Pioneer amplifier" is not unique nor revealing. Integrated amplifer? Power amp? Tape Loops available? Pre-Outs? What's involved as a preamp?

The key thing to know is that any amplifier channels driving 901's must not drive other speakers as the Active EQ severely modifies the Line Level source input. If the EQ (or any sound processor) is used in a Tape Loop on a modern multichannel digital-audio-capable AVR, ONLY 2-channel analog sources will function when the Tape Loop is engaged; and all downstream speakers will be affected by the processing. That's par for the AVR course.

Bose 901 use in multichannel applications (which I have) will require access to Pre-Amp outputs for the chosen channels (likely the Front) and you will need to get a separate amp for the 901's, placing the EQ in series with the chosen amplifier. I currently drive mine with a Carver MT-200T.

I have a SX838 Pioneer Receiver. How do I hook up a SG9500 Pioneer Equalizer to it?

The EQ should be connected between the pre-out and the Amp-in.

The pre-out goes to the EQ input.

How should i hook up a pioneer sg-9500 EQ to a pioneer SA7500 and a TX 6500 tuner and amp

check in yhe back of your amp to see if you have a pre amp power amp rca jumpers. If you do. remove these jumpers and take the pre amp out and plug it into the eq in. Then take the eq out and plug it into the power amp in. this will put your eq inbetween the pre amp and power amp. If you don't have these rca jumpers on the back of your amp, you can do the same with your tape record in and out inputs on back of amp.
