    Tx mate. But since I didn't have the 'tape deck' loop, what I did was took the line-out from the DVD Player and connected it to the Line-in of the EQ and the line-out of the EQ to the Amp. (Is that what you meant by LINE IN/OUT?

    Anyway, It works great! :)

If your receiver has a TAPE IN you can connect the EQ to that, and it will work just fine. Or if you have main LINE OUT / LINE IN, you can create your loop there.

Hello, Can somebody please tell me how I can hook up my Yamaha EQ70 to my Yamaha RX-V663? Thanks very much!


Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.


The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.


In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).


Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.


The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.


EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.


In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? The rest would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.



Okay, back to the hook-up:


You have to select any available 'tape loop' containing an overrideable analog 2-channel Out and In.


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.



So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.

I recently bought the yamaha rx-v567 and I own a yamaha EQ-70. How do I configure and hook up the EQ to the receiver?


The EQ is connected via one of the Tape loops on the amp (rec out from EQ to play in on amp,rec out on amp to play in on EQ). You then switch "Tape Monitor" on to hear the sound with the EQ settings applied. You can also connect it across Pre out and Main in should you have such sockets. I'm pretty sure it will only affect the main two front channels and not the surround channels.

Eq to receiver


Connect through the tape monitor jacks and if a tape deck is used connect it to the eq! Check your owners manual if you still have it or download one.

I have a teac receiver AG-790 and would like to hook an equalizer to it. How do i go about it?


Find the manual at:
http://www.teac.com/consumer_electronics/receivers_&_tuners/ag-790a/

and on page 6 they show how a Tape Deck is attached. Attach the EQ exactly like that and if you have a Tape Deck or two attach IT(them) to the EQ as if IT was the receiver.

To engage the EQ at the receiver choose Tape and everything passing through the receiver wil lbe routed OUT to the EQ and back IN via the PLAY connections.
