First connect all sources like tuner, cassette player, Cd player into the proper RCA inputs of the control amp, then connect the output of the control amp into the input of the equalizer. Then connect the output of the equalizer into the input of the amplifier. This is how to get the best performance and proper outputs to all the right equipment. The speaker outputs of the amplifier would then go to the speakers.

Let me know if you need more help from me by addressing your post to me, or if you wish to communicate with another expert you can address your post to them I.E. @tech48 or @whoever

Thanks and good luck,

Dave

    You did not mention having a tape deck, but in case you do connect a tape deck or other audio recorder like a CD recorder in the future this information would be helpful. The input of the equalizer you should use would be the main input and output, not the tape input or output. The tape input is for using a cassette player that you wish to use for recording tapes and have the ability to adjust the tone of the recording. Most equalizers have only the two inputs and outputs. It is not necessary to use the EQ for recording, you can get the proper level of tones for recording without the EQ's tape loop. If you do use the EQ's tape loop to adjust the tones of recording you can easily end up with too much or too little bass and treble.

How to hook up a 7 band pioneer equalizer great 470 to a Kenwood kr-v6030 receiver


Connecting an Equalizer to a Receiver Before beginning, purchase RCA cables. In order to run the signal from a stereo receiver to the graphic equalizer and then on to the amplifier, two sets of RCA cables are needed. These are basic cables used to connect auxiliary components like record players and CD players. The length of the RCA cables should be about the same length as the distance between the receiver and equalizer.

1. Connect Graphic the Equalizer to the Receiver

The first step in this setup is to connect the graphic equalizer (EQ) to the receiver. Most receivers will have preamp-in and preamp-out connections. Some have tape monitor connections. It's preferable to connect the EQ to the preamp-in or preamp-out because the tape monitor won't allow for connection to the amplifier as well.

2. Connect the RCA Cables

The first set of RCA cables should connect the receiver and equalizer. Connect one pair to the preamp output channels and the other end to the left and right input channels on the EQ. These are on the back side of the equalizer. Usually, the colors will correspond to the RCA plugs. That means connect the red plug to the red jack and the white plug to the white jack. Then connect the second pair of RCA cables between the receiver and the amp. Match the colors in the same way.

3. Connect the Amp to the Receiver

Now the amp can be connected to the receiver via RCA cables in the amp inputs on the receiver. This will create a loop from the receiver through the EQ and amp and back to the receiver so that all three units are connected.

4. Test Graphic Equalizer

Turn on the receiver, amp and equalizer. Once they are powered up, try controlling the sound with the equalizer knobs. They should fine tune the music according to your preferences. It's easy to change the frequency response or tone of the music with the equalizer knobs.

Where can I find a manual for Kenwood Tuner kt-57?


Is it a tuner only? If so you will need a power and or just a receiver with speakers. A tuner only has no power output for things like tvs.

How do I connect this system together to get it to work?


The manual for the amplifier and all the other units are here. Use the search feature in the top right with just the model number 'AT-5210'. Getting the items in the right order helps. The turntable obviously goes on top. The Amplifier goes in the middle and all the other units connect to the amp.

How can I connect an equalizer to my Marantz sr-66 ?


Does it have a loop through connection that is before the amplifier section of the tuner? If not I'm not sure you can. If so then you need to connect the equalizer in this section of the tuner.
The owners manual should be able to tell you more than I can find on Google

Kenwood stereo synthesizer tuner t-85l


T-85L is a component of a hifi system not suposed to work alone. You have to connect it to another Kenwood component (an amplifier like the A85 ) through a special cable to power it on/off. The special cable can be used point to point or as daisy-chained.
