How to connect a kenwood ka- 9100 to a pioneer vsx-d608


You don't say, what role the Kenwood is supposed to play but I'll assume you want to slave the Kenwood (and its speakers) to the Pioneer.

The VSX-D608 doesn't have multi-channel pre-outs so you wouldn't have local control of the volume at the Pioneer.

http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=108365&ppid=1122&image=404270323&images=404269872,404269931,404269984,404270049,404270137,404270323&formats=0,0,0,0,0,0&format=0

The KA could be a subwoofer amp as the Pioneer has a pre-out for that.

Outs to Ins. "Power In" on the KA would be for an external volume-controlled source. Otherwise, use one of its non-Phono inputs.

Describe your kenwood manual "ka


Hi, Yes it is safe to leave this connection unhooked. The system control is what the stereo uses to remote control a cassette deck,cd,turntable etc... using the amplifier separately should be o.k. I hope this helps, good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa-Prodzilla

Connect the RCA Outputs of the Tuner to the RCA inputs for Tuner on the amp.
Connect the output of the Tape Deck to the Tape Input on the amp.
Connect the input of the Tape Deck to the Tape Output on the amp.

Select Tuner on the amp to listen to the tuner.
Select tape Monitor to hear the Tape Deck(s).

I have recently acquired a old Denon AVR3801 Home cinema Receiver. I have plugged it all up and switched it on, but although the system seems to work quite nicely, the amp itself makes a buzzing/humming...


The solution of leaving the thing on all the time would certainly work, but most of the time a buzzing sound inside a relatively robust audio amplifier is being caused by the huge transformer coil in the thing. Or wires that are in close proximity thereto.

In some ways, you're blessed that the buzzing is coming from the unit itself, and not through the loudspeakers.

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

Kenwood 606 receiver


disconnecting the tv from the audio connections on your amp may have created a powersurge in the audio input selector IC. Try powering down the amp at the wall completely for 5 mins and turn it on again. Check to see if operation has returned. If not then it may need an audio selector chip replaced.

This problem can be caused when connecting or disconnecting rca connectors from non earthed equipment like TV and VCRs, By the nature of this type of connector, it will spike the input line by connecting with voltages floating often over 100volts.

to avert this problem occurring, wire all the equipment up and with aerial disconnected and tv / vcr turned off at the wall socket. Turn the equipment power on at the wall last thing.
