Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have 2 seperate equilizers and i will like to hook them up tomy stereo setpejohanson200
My big Q is - 'Why are you wanting to use two EQs in the first place, when one will suffice. But that is not for me to ponder over. :)
How are you trying to hookup the EQs? I have my eq connected between my preamp and amplifier. The other common method is to insert the eq in the tape loop between cassette and amplifier/preamp. Then select the tape loop to put the eq in the signal loop. You then connect your tape player through the tape monitor jacks on the back of the EQ and select this option in otder to play tapes.
If you have two tape inputs, then you can insert one eq into tape 1, and the other eq into tape 2 and choose accordingly. Bear in mind that you dont have to use the tape in order to use either EQ in your system. Just make sure you are using one EQ or the other. If you attempt to use both, then you run into potential signal 'corruption' (i.e. loss of datta or signal pumping, depending on the frequencies enhanced/attentuated).

The following is some boilerplate I made up that should explain some usage limitations.
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? They 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. That would be MD Tape, CD-R, VCR1 or DVR/VCR2 in your case.
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
