How do I connect my 901 equalizer /speakers to the yamaha rx-v633 receiver?

Sorry, it doesnt look like you can hook up an external EQ while still using the amplifier section of the yamaha. Instead, You would have to use the preamp out to go to 901 EQ, out of the EQ into another stereo amplifier, then to the 901 speakers. Personally, to power the 901's properly, I'd use another external amplifier. You will barley get 75watts per channel out of the receiver to power the 901's

What connection do I use to connect a sony blue ray disc to on a Yamaha htr 6030 reciever to play music cd's

You said "...on reciever cd out in the audio box..." but it should the reciever IN that you connect to. Also is the BlueRay player capable of playing CD's ? When you press play on the sony remote, do the seconds start counting on the screen ? (ie: is it playing, but no sound is coming out?)

How do i connect an equalizer to a Yamaha rx-v995 reciever?

Connect the EQ to the Tape IN and OUT jacks and switch the Rec OUT/Zone 2 to Tape/MD. That is my best guess without having the owners manual....

How to connect dvd player to AV reciever

S-Video is a media type that only carries video. Unfortunately the LG unit was designed only to be a self contained surround sound unit. There are only video outputs to the television on this unit. Because of the unit having surround sound capabilities, LG felt that their wasn't a need for audio output. You would need to buy a new DVD player to allow audio from the DVD to your new Yamaha unit. Good Luck!

you can do it passive. no idea with your ampli, but if it does have a bridge then you can hook your eq there, series. if it doesn't have then via tape monitor 2 of your kenwood.

onkyo recvr tape 2 record to - kenwood eq in
onyo recvr tape 2 playback - kenwood eq out

that's all. if you want your eq to be active, then switch your reciever to tape2, all selected input in your reciever will by pass through your eq then back to kenwood. you dont have a function for tape 2 input then but your eq will have an extra input for tape, that you can use for your second tape, it will be active only if your reciever is set to tape 2. i hope you got it right.

post back if you got it done
