SOURCE: Denon AVR-2105

If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?

HOW TO CONNECT A ONKYO TX NR535 TO AN EQUALIZER


First this solution will be fraught with potential problems:
1. There is no simple monitor outputs and inputs on the NR535.
2. The NR535 analog inputs/outputs are unbalanced, where the Behringer EQ is completely balanced (TRS or XLR)
3. Insertion of the EQ is analogous with inserting an effects device in an audio loop which in the case of analog surround will cause de-correlation or the companding sidechain making for non-compliance/performance issues.

OK, now the solution can be as follows:

Since the NR535 has a Zone 2 channel, you can use these L/R RCA outputs to make an effects loop. To do this you will need to make or buy RCA to TRS (1/4" phone Tip Ring Sleeve jacks) that you will connect from the Zone 2 outputs to the CH1 and CH2 inputs of the EQ. You will need another pair of the RCA to TPS to connect the output of the EQ back to one of the RCA analog inputs on the back of the Receiver.

Now once this is done, you will be able to Map Zone 2 input to any of the inputs other than the one you are using for the output of the EQ. Let's say you have mapped Zone 1 to your gaming station. This will patch the audio from your gaming station into the EQ and back into your previously connected analog input. At this point, you can leave Zone 2 and select your analog input which is your EQ output, which is your Gaming station. If you don't have any output, you may need to go back into the Zone 2 setup and adjust the volume level.

When you don't want the EQ in the signal chain, just select the input source other than the input used for the EQ's Zone 2 output.

I am not sure if this will work for all situations as you may have technical conflicts between analog and digital audio on some inputs. In any case, this will work with analog signals and I don't see any other simple solution for your case.

I hope this solution can help.

I can not get any source audio to play to my zone two speakers. no tv,cbl signal, blu ray sound, aux Ipod etc.


What brand/model receiver do you have? Most receivers will only output an analog signal to zone 2. You cannot use hdmi or optical inputs.

Is there any way to get Zone 2 to take the same source as Maine 1? My Zone 2 does not paly anything from cbl/sat even if zone 1 is on tuner


What kind of signal are you using for the cable/sat? Most receivers cannot use a digital input (optical, hmdi) to output a signal to zone 2. You may have to make an analog connection to get it to work.

My Onkyo TX-SR506 plays cable and CD inputs to zone 2, but DVD won't play. Everything is connected according to the manual and I assigned zone 2 output correctly. What gives?


How are your cable and cd inputs hooked up? Analog connections? Alot of receivers cannot send an audio signal from hdmi inputs to zone 2.

Multi room will not play any digital input, just analog. I.e. Video 1 when analog connection plays in multi room, but optical 1, when set as input for vid 1 will not play in multi; works fine in main...


I have a Marantz 7.1 AV receiver (sr5500) and I run a 5.1 set up for home theatre and use the 2 extra channels to run a pair of outdoor stereo speakers... When I first set it up I also found I could not get a digital signal output, only analog, after reading the manual(!) I discovered that it can only output an analog signal...so I have used the phono outputs on my blu-ray player into the CD input of the AV amp and play CDs outside through this and it also outputs the optical digital signal into the AV amp through the DVD input...my iPod also plays through a dock and it's analog output to the speakers outside through another (CD-R) anolog input on the amp... Hope this helps

Zone 2 audio output is for analog only? The only reason I bought this receiver was to be able to play my ipod on our outdoor speakers.


David is wrong. My Onkyo is the same way. The receiver will only provide a signal to zone 2 speaker outputs from analog sources. I assume this was because of concerns with digital rights management, which caused some odd decisions for a while by hardware manufacturers. Newer receivers should not have this problem.

Can not get sound from zone 2 when playing cd's


I would guess you are hooking up the DVD player digially ie with digital coax or optical. The 307 doesn't have a D/A converter for zone 2. To fix this, simply run a set of analog audio outputs from your dvd player to whatever input makes you happy and set that to zone 2.

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers


Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

No digital to reciever??


This tv will only output the sound from a digital tv channel through the optical output when using the tv's digital tuner. So if you are connecting a DVD etc it will not output through the optical output on the tv. ONLY digital chanels through the tv's tuner will give you sound. Refer to the tv's owners manual for more info.

No output to Zone 2 from preout to 2nd power amp for second room speakers


OK, From what I am understanding is that you both are trying to uilize a digital audio source (HDMI cables are digital audio only) and hence this is the problem. You can only use an analog audio source (connection) to utilize the audio output to zone 2. A simple soultion is to use the analog audio in conjuction with the digital. Connect the digital (HDMI, Optical, Coax) to the main zone and the left and right audios to zone 2.
