Question about Pioneer Audio & Video Receivers

7 Answers

I'm trying to use wireless headphones with my Pioneer VSX-810 by connecting the RCA (red+white) into one of the audio outs in the back (ie. CDR, or VCR) but I"m getting no sound. The headphones connect well through the front headphone jack (using RCA-headphone adapter) but I don't want to have to turn the speakers off everytime I use the headphones, I'd rather just be able to mute the receiver and control the volume with the headphones. All my audio into the receiver is digital optical, can't my receiver switch the digital in to analog out?

    all power works. As I said, the headphones function normally when plugged into the headphone jack but I want to plug them into the RCA out of the receiver.

    I'm not sure that's right because both my receiver manual and headphone manual suggest that it should work. Are there any other solutions I could try to plug the headphones intot eh back of the receiver?

  • Michael Smukler

    it still doesn't work, even when volume is up

  • Michael Smukler
    Michael Smukler Feb 28, 2009

    I have done this, but it is ugly plugged into the front of the receiver (where the headphone jack is)

    the headphone are analog

    "3.5mm Jack to RCA converter will work in analog as well. You can buy the coverter from the following link:"
    As I said, I've done this. I don't want to plug into the headphone jack in the front, I want to plug it into the RCA output in the back. Is there a configuration that my receiver must be in to do this?

    is the "line out" different from the audio outs for devices to record through the receiver? Cause that's all I see, and those aren't working

    "you can get the normal head phones instead of analog head phones and they will support as for what you really wanted.the sound will be clear and sharp in normal head phones.just try that it will work for sure"
    -this doesn't make sense to me. Forget it. I'm already trying to get my money back from FixYa, I'm pretty sure I've soveled the problem myself with no help from "experts". Thanks anyway.

    problem not solved, but I'm going to ask elsewhere. Not interested in advice like "is the power turned on".

  • Michael Smukler
    Michael Smukler Feb 28, 2009

    I was wrong, i didn't solve the problem. I tried using the preouts set for an extermal amp but they are subject to the turning the speakers on/off as well. So I've deceided to live with it or buy a digital to analog converter (if I can find one under $70).

  • Michael Smukler

    and I paid for a solution which I didn't get.

Hi,

What you need is a simple A/B switch. Connect it inline from your Surround Output (Right and Left) on the back. Connect your speakers to output A and your headphone cable to output B. Then all you have to do is move the switch to have the sound go to your speakers or to your headphones. The switch can sit behind the unit so it's out of the way. You may have to work on the configuration to suit your needs, but a switch will work for you. Have fun with your headphones.

Hi

You can offcourse do that by using a 3.5mm Headphone Jack converter which converts RCA to 3.5mm Stereo Jack.

Please revert for any clarifications.

    3.5mm Jack to RCA converter will work in analog as well. You can buy the coverter from the following link:



    RCA Male to 3.5mm



    3.5mm Mini Male to RCA Female

If you MUTE main signal / output, you will not get any sound in wireless headphone.
You should lower volume of receiver only to get sound in headphone instead of putting the receiver on mute.

    Regarding digital and analog audio issue, please find Line Out RCA terminals on receiver to hook wireless headphone there.



  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Feb 28, 2009

    As I said before, your Pioneer receiver should have RCA jack at rear called LINE OUT.
    Wireless headphone base unit will be hooked there to get sound and transmit it to headphone.


  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Feb 28, 2009

    May be its written as MONITOR AUDIO OUT, words can be different but basic thing is that jacks have same audio out what you listen in speakers through volume control.

  • Shahid Electronics

    You got every possible info from experts and now saying you solved it yourself?

    If you want to receive digital audio into your wireless headphone, than make sure the wireless devices only support analog audio.

How do I get the powered subwoofer to work with a pioneer VSX-D510


You plug a subwoofer RCA cable into the Subwoofer Preout from the back of the VSX-D510 and to the input on the back of the subwoofer. If there is a red / white connection don't sweat it, just use the red. Should work fine.

Im having trouble hooking up my equalizer to my Pioneer audio/video multichannel receiver vsx-814


Looking at the back..bottom right corner is CDR/Tape in and out. Connect the in on the eq to the out of CDR/tape, connect the out of the eq to the in of CDR/tape.
You should then be able to use the CDR/tape monitor button to switch the equalizer in and out.

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

How do i connect a subwoofer to my vsx-9700s


on the back of the pioneer, you have a subwoofer preamp output jack, probably colored black, as opposed to red or white. stretch a rca cord between there and the red and white (or lfe) input of the sub. youll then have to check the amp setup menu and make sure it has the output activated. good luck

No Sound on TV/SAT setting on Receiver.


Most TV has Audio Out RCA jack at rear and it gives same TV Sound as coming from its speakers.
Hook audio wire red white RCA pins at TV Out and plug these pins to TV/SAT input of receiver. Select TV/SAT input in receiver to get TV program sound coming out from TV.
Hope that info will help you.
