Re: sony seq 711 hook-up?

For all intents and purposes, you can't. The STRDA3200ES has no tape monitor and it has no main out/pre in loop. Sony quit selling the SEQ711 and all EQs qfter they quit making receivers with tape monitors.

The 3200 has a tape out and in section, but it is not a tape monitor. Tape Monitoes allow us to select a source (CD, DVD, Phono, etc.) and send it to the tape deck, then listen to the tape deck. The tape switch on the 3200 et. al. takes the sound away from the source (CD, DVD, Phono, etc.) when we select Tape, so there is nothing there to equalize.

A possible solution exists, you can come out of the front pre outputs and go to the EQ in, then take the EQ outs and go to an outboard power amp. A possible drawback is that most seperate power amps do not have the fullness or detail of the 3200. You would have to rewire the speakers every time you wanted to listen to surround sound.

A second problem is that the SEQ711 does not have the same lack of distortion (phase, TIM, and THD) that the 3200 has. The EQ in the 3200, once you get used to it, may prove to be superior sound.

That's my 2 cents.

SEQ-711 connection to sony STR D350Z

You can use the VCR audio connections for a stereo analog processor

Many people want to use an EQ with their modern multi-channel Digital Sound Processing gear but at best an analog 2-channel EQ (or any other processor) will only work with analog stereo sources. On most receivers, simply selecting the Tape Monitor disables all digital inputs. However, most DSP can still be employed with analog source material and a 2-channel processor with varying degrees of aesthetic pleasantness. Beauty is indeed in the ear of the beholder.

If that works for you, go for it. I do it, but I fully understand the limitations.

Connect 5 piece Sony seperates stereo system

OK, this is pretty easy to do. First connect your leads from the component outputs(i.e., tape, cd, phono, etc) to the recievers corresponding input for the device. Then connect the recievers outputs to your equalizer, if it is a seperate eq. Then the outputs of that to your amplifier, then your speakers to that. Be sure all of your wires are connected with the proper polarity. These instructions may be a little different for your exact setup but basically follow the same order minus any device you dont have.
