How do I connect Active speakers to my Denon 3805 AV receiver?


Your Genelec 1037C monitors are professional design with balanced inputs. Balanced inputs expect a low impedance signal with pin 1 earth, pin 2 hot and pin 3 cold. Because the Denon amplifier supplies a pre out for the front speakers (the first pair in the set of pre outs) at 1.2 volts and high impedance, you will need to convert the signal close to the amplifier with a stereo active DI box. Plug the pre out directly into the input of the DI with a SHORT lead and then plug two standard balanced microphone type cables ( XLR to XLR) into each of your active monitors. You cannot make a cable that is RCA to XLR by shorting pin 3 to earth to do this job properly. The inputs on your Genelecs expect a signal in the range -6dBU to +6dBU for rated output. A suitable DI box would be for example a Klark Teknik DN200. Hope that helps.
Cheers, Don.

My Da2400es output has gone awful. The sound is fine, but then I am connected via optical cable, but the picture has a posterised effect now! Tried different cable and direct telly connection is fine!...


Tim, optical cables in current technology are for audio only so they have no bearing in a discussion of video.

How is your video connected? Specific details about affected source(s) and their precise connections will help lead to a specific answer.

If you're using component video (Red/Green/Blue) cables you may have them crossed or one is not connected tight. As you state, direct connection is good. I avoid many problems by never running any signal to or through a device that doesn't use or improve it. IOW, video goes straight from a source to the monitor. High-end audio goes directly from its root source to the AVR. No problemos.

When i plug in my condenser, and the phantom power is on, none of the pan knobs are turned left or right, but for some reason when i talk into the mic, it is panned to the left. and when i record it does...


There is not enough information to go on here. A condenser mic is usually connected via XLR connections and receivers done have thaty type of input. Where is the phantom power coming from. Perhaps the wiring of hte XLR is incorrect for the equipment being used. (There are 2 standard connection styles). Can you update this with the equipment being used and how it is connected?

Thanks,
Dan

How to Hook up HDMI from Comcast Motarola Cable Box


Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

Hum and Buzz Ground Loop


Best way is with balanced audio lines. Use either XLR or TRS cables IF your devices have those connections.

Also, do NOT use light dimmers as these are often a source of the higher frequencies that cause buzz.

Also power ALL the interconnected audio devices from a single source outlet rrather than from mulltiple building receptacles.

Having trouble connecting my blue ray and tv to my yamaha receive and surround system


Must be an HDMI ?

If yes use the HDMI DVD input on your receiver ( from the Blue Ray using a HDMI cable )
Then use an HDMI cable from receiver to TV.

That should work for image. Sound would only work directly from TV, to have sound on receiver:

Use either optical or coax cable to direct digital sound from blueray to receiver.
Best is optic, depends on blueray or cable availability ... Coax = RCA cables @ 75 Ohms, use of a spare RGB would work find (using only one of three color available let's say using Red only) or try with any RCA cable.

direct cable from blueray to receiver ( Digital inputs at far left looking back of receiver num 7 in owner manual, choose DVD )

If no sound from receiver check Audio select from option menu ( set to auto )

Any specific question about this procedure ?

or guess you already found out,

Enjoy :-)

Hi noahrock

You can get a replacement lead from a musical instrument store. It uses a standard microphone XLR connector. Be sure to get a decent quality item that uses Cannon, Switchcraft or Nuetrik connectors. You wont have problems with the plug coming off again.

Hi, a couple of questions for you. What pin connections have you made for the cables in the wall. are you using 2 core plus braid mic cable?

Please let me know and we can go from there.

The loud screeching noise you are experiencing, may be too much gain. Start with everything turned down, and work your way back setting levels to about 5-6 from the master level first. The channel gain at the top of each input strip should be you last adjustment.

What is the right rs232 cable to connect a Denon 3808CI reciever and a Phillips RFX9600 serial extender


OK LOOKING AT THE SPECS FOR THE EXTENDER YOU DO NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS, WHEN USING THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS YOU NEED RS232 CODE STRINGS TO CONTROL THE DENON OR ANYOTHER DEVICE THROUGH THIS EXTENDER USING THE RS232 CONNECTIONS.
IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CONNECT AN I/R EMITTER FROM AN MINI JACK I/R CONTROL PORT ON THE BACK AND THE OTHER END TO THE I/R WINDOW ON THE DENON
