How do I connect a turntable to my nakamichi av-8?

This model does not seem to have a dedicated phono socket on the back. But you can connect it to the AUX socket. However in order to get any volume out of the deck. You will need to pass it through a magnetic cartridge pre-amp first. You should be able to pick one up at places such as Amazon. You plug the deck leads into the pre-amp and then the out leads into the aux socket of the av-8.

The receiver is muted when playing in tuner or cd the volume is not coming through the speakers. We can hear it muted when turning up to max its very low. Lost instruction manual can you help. I think my...

I can't find a manual either. Can I assume you really mean the sound is muted for EVERY source, not just tuner and CD?

I'd guess it's either MUTED or a Tape Monitor is active. Turn the volume down, select FM as the source, tune a station and use it as your test source. Look around for indicators that give a clue.

NEVER troubleshoot anything with the volume control turned way up. You'll blow up or damage the speakers and your hearing right after you discover and correct the misplaced control.

Got a Nakamichi AV-2 receiver at a garage sale, no manual however. Can I use it to power a 5.1 surround system for home theatre?

I could find only little information about this receiver, but it seems that is supports only 4.0 Dolby Pro Logic.

Nakamichi AV10. Re: left channel softer than the right one.


Its an issue with the tone switch activate and reactivate it to get back to normal volume on both speakers, and would suggest you to clean the switch with WD40 and it should resolve the issue

AV-2 surround receiver. No sound

This may sound silly, but make sure that the tape monitor switch is not turned on. If it is not, let me know and we'll look elsewhere.

Nakamichi AV-10 loud thud from subwoofer

I don't know the design of this reciever, and do not have any schematics or engineering information to know the design.

This is a general comment:
In many of these recievers at this level they don't have very good muting designed in to their system. When switching sources, the audio is not being muted.

This is a theory of why the noise is not on the main speakers, but present on the sub woofer. Because the switching noise is of very low frequency, this is why the sub woofer is making noise. The main speakers lack the low frequency sensitivity that the sub woofer has. This is one way of looking at it. It is also possible that there is muting for the main speakers, and none for the sub woofer.

If the reciever does have muting in to its design that is supposed to mute when switching modes, then there is an obvious defect. When a source is switched, or a mode is changed, the output would mute for the duration of the switching interval. This is usually for a period of about 100 ms.

Your best bet is to contact the service rep for nakamichi and ask the question there.

I have serviced many recievers made by other manufactures. The higher end models all had muting in their design. This way, the output was muted when the source was changed, and when the reciever was turned off or on.

Nakamichi AV-10 very little sound on the center speaker

could be the speaker, try connecting another speaker and cable and see if it improves. If the problem is still there and you've checked all the settings insuring that its not turned down, then could be an internal problem with the receiver.
Hope this helps a little at least.
