SOURCE: Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

I have acarver receiver mxr 130 receiver no sound output to speakers but desplay is lit


I know this is a old post but check all your connections.

There is a common issue with a lot of these recievers that have no output and typically it is the protection relays out to the speakers that fail. There is a person on ebay that sells these replacement relays. link is here. thanks http://www.ebay.com/itm/221121502953?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

"No sound from the amplifier but I can hear a faint pop when switching on" That means that a component, probably an IC, had blown on the Amp final circuit.

The amp must be tested and inspected by a technician.

Center channel dosen't work on 10 yr old marantz 500$ receiver. Should I just buy a new one?


I'd do some more investigation first. Have you determined if the amplifier for the channel works or if it's a preamp problem using the built-in speaker setup controls?

With this unit's great audio processing features you might be able to bypass a failed amplifier using the pre-outs and drive an external amp for the missing channel.

You could always just get a modest stereo amp (like a Carver M-100T and bridge it), or use the extra channel for another center speaker or a subwoofer, for example.

I have a phono preamp hooked up to my Yamaha receiver for a turntable. My tall speaker tipped over and knicked the receiver and now my turntable will not produce any sound. Could this have blown the phon...


Let's figure out which hardware is failing. Connect the phono preamp to the CD or tuner input to see if it works there. It should. If it does, your receiver is at fault. Did the front panel controls get damaged?

How did the turntable fare in this accident? As a basic test of its ability to produce sound, hook it directly to the CD input and raise the volume slowly while playing an LP. If it's alive you'll hear a very weak, tinny sound, but I assume you know that or you wouldn't have a phono preamp in the first place and would probably be asking why the TT sounds so poor. :-)

I have a Kenwood Basic M1 Preamp that I found at a garage sale some time ago. For the first ten minutes or so after I turn it on the audio cuts out at random intervals. When It is warm the problem goes...


Clarification: The M1 is the amplifier, and the C1 is the preamp, just so we're both straight on that. Regardless, on older equipment like this, thorough cleaning of all pots and switches with a high-quality cleaner such as Caig DeOxit is the first step to solve any intermittent probem.

Carver CT-17 pre-amp does not give me the front display.


Try replacing C901, a 47uF/25v capacitor that is part of the FL display circuit.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

Nad 712 output issues - Mute flashing


The only thing I can tell you for sure is that the mute indicator always flashes (very dimly) when the receiver is off.  I have no idea why, but mine has always done this.
