Rotel PReamp, Can I directly Connect my powered speakers to the output

I bought a Rotel stero control amp from an old dusty stereo store, I want to connect my Stanton Turntable to it.

I have the table plugged into the phono port and I have my powered speaker system plugged into the output and I can barely hear anything, cranking it way up produces almost inaudible noise but its def the record I have playing.

Do I need a receiver to plug into the output or what? Pls help

Hi,

Based on your post, the pre-amp is doing its job. What might be the mismatch would be the powered speaker system plugged into the output of the Rotel. Depending on what the "powered speaker system" is, it might be that it is a low impedance such as those used in computers whereas the Rotel requires high impedance to be connected to its output. What could be tried is to connect a regular amp or receiver to the Rotel.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Rotel processor bypass for Audio Research SP10


If I understand you, the 'sound' of the AR preamp is what you're trying to preserve. Presumably you're just running a phono through it as nothing else needs a preamp these days.

The multichannel inputs bypass all of the Rotel's processing except the volume. Use the Front L and R.

I have an old integrated amplifier and an old BSR EQ-3000 stereo frequency equalizer. i just bought a used bose 901 speaker set. how do i hook-up the bose 901 equalizer in this system?


Hook the signal source to the equalizer input and the equalizer output signal to one of the signal inputs on your amp. This is one way, but this way only one signal source will go through the equalizer (unless it has several signal inputs and a source selector switch).

The other way (inserting the equalizer between the preamp and the main amp) is:

If your amp has RCA connectors on the back named "preamp out" (or similar) and "power amp in" (or similar) that have slugs connecting them, remove the slugs, hook the "preamp out" signals from the amplifier unit to the signal inputs on the equalizer and outputs from the equalizer to the "power amp in" inputs on the amplifier.

Basically, what you do is that you insert the equalizer between the preamplifier section and the power amp section of the integrated amplifier so that you can still select the signal source without having to switch any signal cables (however, i can't say if your amp has got this type of "slug" connection feature between the preamp and the power amp on the rear panel, so i'm not sure which way you'll have to hook it up).

Hope you can make it work the way you want.

regards

Can I hook up my steroe speakers to the TV? I have an older model


If your older model TV has red and white plugs on the back of it that say something like "Audio Out" or "Output" then YES.

Simply connect a pair of RCA Cables (available any electronics store) from the Audio Out jacks on your tv to the "AUX" input on your stereo.

You cannot power speakers without some kind of stereo/receiver.

If you do have a receiver then you can connect to your "TV INPUT" on the back of your receiver and control the tv volume with your receiver remote.

If your tv does not have those red and white output jacks then there is no practical way for you to connect your speakers.

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.
