Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I am assuming that you would want the sound output of a laptop to feed the Pioneer KEH-M5550. If you would hard wire the output of the laptop to the input stage of the amp where the tapehead goes into, the amp would be overdriven. This is because the output of the tapehead are very very low while that of the the laptop is high line level (enough to drive even a headset). What could be suggested is to use a Car Cassette Adapter similar to shown below available from most electronics stores such as here.

Alternately, if the KEH-M5550 has an AUX INPUT RCA to RCA (meant for MP3 players), then that may be used.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    I do agree on the poo sound quality of the cassette adapter; and technically, it would be rather difficult modding the circuitry of the Pioneer to accommodate a line in since a logic circuitry is used for signal source selection, volume & tone controls.

    A better option would be to use an FM modulator (stereo transmitter) where the laptop would broadcast its sound output to an unused FM frequency and the KEH-M5550 would pick it up as a regular stereo broadcast. Sound quality wise, it is very good to the point some trunk CD changer system uses this method. Below is a very good example while other versions/models may be viewed here.

    Cheers.

I have a Pioneer VSX-520 receiver and was told I need a pre-amp to hook up my record player.I purchased a technics integrated power amplifier from a flea market and was wondering if it is compatible with...


IF the unidentified new Technics Integrated Amp has a PHONO section it will support the turntable.

IF the unidentified new Technics Integrated Amp has, say, a Tape Output, that could feed any Line Level input on the Pioneer. OUT to IN.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D308 reciever and I have a EQ. How do I hook it up to this reciever?


I only know of one way to do this and here it is:

1. Plug your tape deck's output (cassette or R2R) into the EQ's "Line In".
2. Plug the EQ's "Line Out" into the Receiver's "Tape 1 Input".
3. Now plug the Receivers "Tape 1 Output" into the Tape Player's "Line In".
4. You have now made an "FX loop" for the Tape Deck. Now you just have to put the Tape Deck on "Tape Monitor".....put the Receiver on "FM"..... and turn on your favorite FM station and you will hear the FM Receiver THROUGH the tape deck's "Monitor Send" AND the EQ.............set EQ to taste....... and BINGO.......DONE!

Enjoy,

Need to know how to hook up my cd player to this vsx 456 pioneer reciever and the out to my 8 track recorder. Thanks Nick


Have you looked at the manual? It's basic hook-up.

Any source's Outs go to Ins on the receiver.

Tape recorders attach to tape loops (outs to ins).

Digital sources will not appear at analog outputs.

Trying to hook up numark eq2400 to pioneer sx-255r


You have to select any available 'tape loop' .


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to INPUT

Receiver Tape In (Play) - from OUTPUT 1 or 2


A tape deck would hang off the back of the EQ using ITS tape loop.

Pioneer SX-2300 powers up, but no sound.


Does the output relay click about 5 sec. after powering on? If it does check if the tape2/tape monitor is on. Check speakers and wiring. Try headphones.

There aren't any fuses for the output.

If no relay then it probably needs output transistors and a few resistors.

No audio output from Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver


If it's under warranty..get a new one.
It's an internal breakdown ...tech service only.

PIONEER VSX-1018AH NO SOUND OUTPUT


If this is a new hookup be sure this amp doesn't have pre-out/main-in jacks that may need to be bypassed. Otherwise, maybe look to see if any tape deck buttons are pushed. Good luck.
