Yes when I try to hookup my adc soundshaper two mark 3 equalizer to my sony str-de 197 receiver it doesnt work.Is it because the receiver doesnt have any tape monitor buttons?I had it hooked up before to an older 70s sanyo receiver which had monitor buttons and it worked fine.But that receiver quit working.So now im trying to get it to work with my new sony but with no luck yet.
This might work fish76, The EQ needs a in & out source to operate correctly? If you have audio device connected to an aux input disconnect that & connect the EQ to that audio device & then plug the EQ to the Sony receiver AUX input. The tape monitor is the most important source for hooking up an EQ device, so you are very limited on a total receiver or amp tonal connection source. The bottom line is you can only use the EQ if another audio source to plug into it & the EQ plugs to your pre-amp input on the back of your rec or amp

Failure of the the power source. To see if it's fixable the receiver will have to be opened and the power board tested . This job requires at least a basic experience in electronics - if you don't posses it all you can do is to look for a burned fuse or damaged capacitors. For them follow this
the ir feed receiver amplifier has failed a common sony fault on older units a fix is about $100.00 or use a repeater ir blaster from circuit city for $40 and try that you can return if no success the repeater eye covers the receivers originaland pumps up the out put into the unit
Simply run an HDMI cable to the LCD from the DVD player. Now, use the digital audio output of the DVD player to run to the receiver. I know the Sony has an optical input which i recommend over the coaxial input as the optical cable doesnt waste any energy as a medium transferring sound since its only light.
Could need a new ir sensor or repair solder connections on the display (ir) board. You can check that the remote is putting out a signal by viewing it with a camcorder, turn the camera on look through the viewfinder and point the remote at it push a button. If it is working you will see a flashing light on the remote.
Usually you hook your equalizer between the pre out and main in RCA
jacks and then open the connection between the pre and main with a
switch. If your unit doesn't have pre out/ main in jacks then I
have seen it done by putting your equalizer between the tape in and
tape out jacks and then select that tape function on your front panel.
The tape out goes to eq. in and the eq. out goes to tape in. Good
You will need either a pre-in pre-out connection on the amp to use, A vcr in/out loop can be used in lieu of a "tape" loop. Or alternatively you can put the EQ in line with the bit of gear you want to EQ. In this day and age, of "many more than stereo" systems, a 2 channel EQ has much less application. Although this seems to "outdate" a piece of gear, most stuff from yesteryear still sounds great, so why stop using it. Good Luck and happy listening. A "FixYa" rating from you would help my profile.
