You need a "y" cable to bridge the output of the tv to the speakers.

Will the Marantz SR5004 work with the 901?

By itself, yes, in stereo for stereo analog source material only.

There's good news and bad news for the multichannel hopes you must be harboring.

The bad news is that a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. For one thing, the other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization (unless they, too, are 901's of the same version) and for another, if you engage your Tape Monitor you will not be able to play digital sources. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on most (all?) AV receivers it disables any digital inputs.

The good news. I have a 7.1 setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers. You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Just draw the Front L and R analog pre-out from the Marantz to the Bose Active Equalizer then to the new amp. Adjust your speaker levels and enjoy.

How to switch on Sub?

surround and subwoofer may not work if there is an additional graphic equaliser operating.
1. check in your receiver speaker setting ensure your speaker setup doesn not have subwoofer set to NONE. this will block any signal to your subwoofer socket.
2 when you select your surround sound setting setup, ensure you select the speaker mode you want, if there is a multicontrol knob, cycle through the choices
select subwoofer mode and set it to yes.
if you have set-up small speakers S in your speaker settings then it could be that subwoofer is set to yes automatically if you have large speakers L, subwoofer has to be set additionally in the subwoofer setting.
3 test subwoofer on alternative device to test it is working ok
consult manual on enjoying surround sound and adjusting the speaker settings.

We have a Denon AVR Surround Sound receiver, a Samsung HDTV, an XBox 360, an ASD-3W Denon Ipod Dock and Klipswitch speakers with a subwoofer, center channel and too bookshelf speakers. We need help...

HDMI input connect as follows:

1. Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon.
2. Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon.
3. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung.
You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition to the HDMI cable and last,

4. On front of denon after you setup and assign your optical connections, if you use them, once you select TV/CBL or DVD/HDP as a source, press the input mode button to select auto

Not all speakers work in a LD 220 Surround sound receiver

Yes all speaker must be connected in order for them to work properly.  Also note that the audio that you are playing through it must be dolby digital 5.1 or higher or DTS.  If you are simply watching a tv program most of them will not be in surround sound as well as music discs.

Friend gave me a jbl surround system to go with my 52" sony hd tv. It has four speakers. three sat 20 and one bass 20. going to a rca stva 3970 receiver. didn't have instructions to go with it.

You need two more speakers to get surround sound,ie> two front one center and two for surround,then you need a home cinema amp to run the speakers and decode the sound from your tv,sky,dvd etc,and the sub gives you your bass.

Hope this helps.

4 speakers with games

For the rear surround speakers to work, the sound must be encoded in surround sound, and most games, if any, are not. The amp doesn't 'see' and information encoded in the sound signal for the rear speakers, therefore you get no sound.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
