You might have to invest in a proper ariel not the kind you get that you stick on the wall but a proper FM one that sits in your loft on on your roof. Hope this helps.

My Denon Stereo Receiver (DRA-345R) (quite an old model but has worked perfectly up until now) has a very static reception on AM. FM is fine. It started when I had my DirecTV upgraded with a Genie (whole...


it's obviously getting interferance fronm that whole house broadcast unit (not abnormal!) best and only thing you can do is to move the stereo to a place where you can get the MOST am stations the loop ant. is exactly what it says it is a loop of wire with two ends..both ends connect to the ant. input on the back of the unit..however if that whole house broadcast unit is the devil then an ant. no matter what or how it's made will only recieve more static not built to reject static! so you've got to move it unfortunately ..fm is a totally different band obviously fm isn't being affected by that whole home broadcast unit..you're lucky! on that count

FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...


If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

Hi,
I went thru user manual..there is no special way of wiring speakers..
pls check carefully the speaker connections again and the "speaker selector" too..
what about "MUTE" button ? it should be "OFF" ...
and try to test it on FM radio first ..
just in case ,if you need the soft USER MANUAL pls visit the URL below..

Amplifier - TA-AX380; CD Player - CDP-C40; AM/FM Tuner - ST-JX380; FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver - STR-AV570X, and Stereo Cassette Deck - TC-W380.....all Sony. Very old system, do not have the manuals, they...


Since you have 2 receivers, you can either use the Sony STR-AV570X or the TA-AX380. You will need 3 Stereo RCA Cables to connect your CD Player, Tuner, and Tape Player. The speakers connect to the receiver you choose using the speaker input terminals.

Hi, I'm about 40 miles NW of Chicago and reception here is not great. I like to listen to AM radio. I usually use my speakers just to listen to CD's, but I decided to try my Acoustic Research receivers...


First make certain the CD player isn't on when the radio is on. CD players cause inteferance with radio's. Apart from that you will need a good aerial. If that doesn't improve it then it could be down to local conditions -hills, power lines etc, blocking the signal. Also check there's nothing around the house that might cause interferance to the signal.

Kenwood RV7030 audio-video stereo has static without antenna


OK I am going to suggest two aerials for you. I would also NOT use the old cable as it will cause a lot of problems. It is best to replace it with the stuff they use for satellite dishes (see image).
The FM aerial will pick up signals from all sides. The TV aerial should give high quality signals and output for at least 5 sets.

I can barely hear sound even when turned all the way up


Turn-off all "surround sound" modes. Try listening to just a plain AM or FM talk station. Then you can check your speaker wiring. Some stereo programming can turn into nothing with certain surround modes, so make sure that your speaker wiring is correct by using the radio or CD player with it first.

I NEED AN ANTENA FOR PANASONIC SA-PM32DB


If its a one wire or two wire FM/AM antenna your needing just use a length of regular stereo speaker wire or electrical wire at least 5foot in length. Should do the trick nicely.

FM static


Hi suebu,

So you got it to go with an antenna. FM tuners are real quiet generally unless they get some sort of signal to unmute them. Even a length of speaker wire split for about 100cm each way(this is called a dipole), then hung vertically will get you great reception.

regards
