Why will Amp not produce sound unless the input and output are patched together


A typical stereo receiver / amp consists of switching low level input signals (CD, DVD, Phono, DAT, etc.), processing them and then output to the amplifier (low level) input for amplification to levels needed to drive speakers. The low level signals would barely be audible via an earphone, so they need to be boosted significantly in order to drive speakers.

Some amps provide jumpers to insert into the phono jacks on the rear of the amp to bridge the processed low level output signals into the low level amplifier input. You could install a Y cable here to feed two amplifiers - or - connect a tape recorder's "REC L+R" to the low level output and the "PLAY L+R" to the low level amp input so that you'd hear the actual audio as it had been recorded on the tape.

If you remove the jumpers (or tape recorder if used instead), there is no way for the low level audio to get into the amp's low level inputs for amplification.

Hi i have a kenwood system which has a loud hum/buzz over the vol this is louder on radio basically unable to hear any music / speach the hum also is on all other selections cd tape aux record deck mo


This sounds like an earth loop, try discounting the earth in the record deck 13 amp plug. If this works reconnect earth and get a stereo isolating transformer to go between the output of the record deck and Kenwood amp. Remember disconnecting the earth can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing, best to just disconnect the RCA leads from the deck to start with. To explain an earth loop it's when you have more than one earth point e.g. amp with a earth and record deck with a earth or a CD deck. You can get the transformer from marlin.

How do you make the 6.1 channel work? Right now it just says digital. Does 6. 1 channel sound better?


6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.

Kenwood Stereo


I presume you realize none of these things produces speaker amplification. A receiver would do that and facilitate graceful and simultaneous interconnections. But it's not a necessity for selective interconnective between them, just not all at the same time.

I can't find any details on anything you named except the Tuner.

Typically, the tuner would use an RCA pair to go to a receiver AUX, TUNER or other Line Level input for source selection and amplification. Lacking a receiver, run it to the Tape Deck inputs for recording.

Ditto for the CD changer, but you'll probably have to disconnect the tuner.

Bose 901 Active EQ Loop


There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. For one thing, the other speakers around the room are not designed to recieve its Active Equalization and for another, if you engage your Tape Monitor you will not be able to play digital sources. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on my receiver it disables any digital inputs.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers. You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

Run the dbx and BSR in tandem with each through the tape monitor loop on the receiver but be advised you can only use them on analog source stero material. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread the sound around the room.

At my PC workstation across the room I have a stack of analog processors and sources including dbx 3bx-ds, dbx 120x-ds, BSR Spatial Enhancer, BBE 462 Sonic Maximizer, SS-525x EQ, Carver C-9, dbx-224x, JVC cassette deck, Dual 1249 Turntable running through a Garrard MRM-101 Preamp, Pioneer PDR-509 CD Recorder and the Media Center PC stereo analog channels all running through a dbx 400x Program Route Selector (a godsend) which is attached to my ONE TAPE MONITOR on my Pioneer VSX-36TX Receiver. Of course, I have some of my analog processors running in tandem, too, since the 224x only has three processor and three tape loops.

For listening/recording anything 2-channel analog I engage the stack through the Tape Monitor. For everything else I turn the Tape Monitor off. The nice thing about the stack being separate is that I can doodle with recording and use headphones while the TV/DVD/Blu-Ray do something else.

Try looking for the reset button usually a little pin button like the ones on digital wrist watches hard to notice. If this is a home stereo are you sure the tape monitor button isn't on?

I was following instructions for "Recording." On the next page were instructions for "Tape Copying," though the first page began with, "Load a tape for recording in Deck II." That sounded like what I wanted. Anyway, that was my error.
