Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Need to replace the plug-ins for the center & rear speakers.

The amplifier is about 10 years old and I don't know the model number. I saw that there is two screws holding in the plug, but I didn't know if they would just snap in or out on the main board.

The screws are usually for additional support for plugging in and out tying the jacks to the back panel. The connections themselves may be unique to the unit. Without the make and model, I can't say for sure. Update this with the make and model as well as which plug-ins you are interested in and I'll try to get you the part numbers and cost.

Ok so I have a brand new Crosley record player. All I need to do is find a way to hook it up to my dads old 1980s fisher speakers. How would you suggest going about this task?

Since you don't mention the model I'll assume one - CR2401A - and look at the manual as you should be doing.

It has a Line Out. THAT would feed an amplifier or other standard analog audio device and IT might in turn be able to drive dad's old speakers. The Crosley model X probably doesn't support direct speaker attachment.

I have an old Philips Amplifier which I bought 18 years ago. The Amp actually can handle 5 speakers but I only connect 2 speakers (L & R). When I play certain DVD, although the background music sounds...

If you identified the specific products involved we (and you) might be able to look at the documentation and verify the obvious answer. Voice is generally concentrated on the center channel, so, yes, a speaker there would be a good idea.

If you don't have a multi-channel rig you shouldn't feed multichannel audio to it. Maybe use the unidentified DVD player's analog output and make sure it's set to mix the channels down to stereo.

Hi there,

this should be fairly straight forward so here we go.

Firstly, do you have your speakers connected properly? If you get sound from anything else plugged into your amplifier, then all is good here.
If you have not used the amp ever before then I will try to explain all.

You should have at least 2 speakers attached to the amplifier. Each speaker has 2 wires (1 positive, red or + and one negative, black or -) Have a look on the back of the amplifier and you should have e series of connections for the speakers, these are also marked in the same way as the amp. the connections will be marked as;
FR - Front right FL - Front left RR - Rear right RL - Rear left C - Centre
Fairly easy so far. If you are just listening to music then unless you want surround effects then 2 speakers will do.
Now to the record player. Again should be fairly easy, you should have a twin cable with red and white plugs on the end and there may also be a thinner wire maybe with a small metal horseshoe on the end. On the rear of the amplifier, look for sockets marked phono. The right and white twin wire plugs in here. As for the thin wire, there should be a thumbscrew on the back of the amplifier, unscrew this and attach the thin wire here.
Now when it is all switched on and you select phono on the amp you should have sound
hope this helps

I have a RZC 298W RCA FM/AM tuner/stereo amplifier that I cant find anywhere. It works ok, except its fuzzy. I'm Just curious about schematics and what year it is. it looks like its at least 40 years old....

You could contact a tv repair shop, many shops have schematics that go back many years. You say the sound is fuzzy, is this fuzzy sound when your playing the radio or when you play something throgh the amplifer? If its fuzzy with any source the you might have a bad speaker or speakers. you need to be more discriptive of the fuzzy sound you describe. also. if this unit has a head phone jack, (which I doubt if its 40 years old). you could plug in some head phone and see if the sound is clear there, if so then you know its most likely the speakers.

Rear speakers are dead, never got them to work. Changed front to back and rears work so speakers and wireing are good. Is it possible that because I did not hook up a center speaker this is the problem?

if its a 5.1 channels it means 2 front speakers,2 rear speakers or either the center speaker or the subwoofer.try to hook up either center speaker or subwoofer.

I have a vintage Kenwood amplifier (two channel rear speakers, 4 channel front / satellite) with Dolby Surround. It is circa '98 or so. I just moved it and now the right channel of the rear speakers seems...

I can't provide specifics without the model number, but ingeneral, the amp section for the rear speaker could be defective or the output relay could be the problem. Without knowing the deisng, I can not say for sure. Typically, the units of that vintage, use ICs for the surround amps. Some use a single IC for both channels, some uise 1 per channel. If you can update this with the model number, I can get you more specifics and perhaps a repair cost estimate.

Rear speakers dont work

check all your speaker wires probably they are broken.if they check good then you will have to get a tech to look at your set it could be your set output ic or transistor gone bad and need to be replaced.and if it is a old set buy a new one probably it wont worth the while to repair it.

good luck

Setting up a Yamaha RX-V690 home theater system

you almost have the exact same situation i am in. i have the same receiver, and going to purchase a panasonic 50" (th50px75u). i think what i will be doing is running a hdmi from my hd cable box to my tv, and installing an audio cable (red/white) from my tv to the receiver. i believe there is an audio input below the hdmi insert. i have polk audio, but theyare about 10 years old, they sound great, but just too large....and may be purchasing a harman kardon system. which models do you have from polk? i have the rt16's, cs350ls center, and fx/500 rears. let me know what you have come up with as it has been a while since you posted this.
