Question about Yamaha RX-V1400 Receiver

Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver powers off, in case it becomes louder

I have a Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver. I run the Genesis 300 Watt speakers as front speakers with it. When I crank up the volume to about +2db, the receiver powers off.
Any ideas of what might cause this?
Don´t come with ideas like check the wires because I checked them 1000 times

Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.

When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?

Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.

P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.

I have a Yamaha RX-V1400 AV Receiver and would like to pair with Technics SL-1300 turntable and pair of JAMO speakers. How do I proceed?


Having looked at the manual it says you can connect the turntable via the phono jacks at the back, with the earth wire to the earth terminal. It's likely you have a magnetic cartridge that needs amplification. But if you put it into the jacks as it stands, it will soon become clear if you need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. For if you have to really turn up the volume to hear it, then you need one. But if the deck plays at normal level to everything else then you don't.
As this is a multi channel receiver you will need more than just two speakers! You can connect the Jamo ones to the front right and left settings. If they are only 6ohms you have to set the speaker setting to 6ohms before useing them.

The unit probably has a setting to just use the front speakers if you just want to use them only. But I suspect it will have an All Channel Stereo setting you can use. Then all the speakers will work and it will give you a much bigger sound.

Why is the rx v475 sending more power to one speaker than the other? It is about half power.


Is the channel distorted, or just plain low? If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your Yamaha, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

I want to hook two speakers on each terminal (L/R).


The correct way would be to hook only one speaker to the powered outputs and use PRE-OUT outputs to connect separate amplifier (or active speakers).

For 2 speakers to work connected to the same powered output of receiver, their impedance would need to be high enough. Yamaha receivers officially support impedance >= 4 ohm for front speakers. If you would connect 2 different 8 ohm speakers, the combined impedance could be theoreticcaly 4 ohm, but that depends on many parameters. On low volumes it should work, but could overload the receiver if used for louder volumes.

Also note that the impedance is a function of frequency (specific to every speaker), so for different frequencies the power from receiver would be devided differently between the speakers and the sound would not be good.

First things first... Disconnect all speakers from the receiver and then turn it on. If it still shuts off, there is an internal issue, if it stays on, its an external issue. Post a reply with your results and I can help you with great detail if needed. Hope this helps.

Yamaha rx-365 reciever not showing all speakers


I,m not familiar with the Yamaha but most receivers are set up the same way. In your setup menu are the speakers marked on in the display?. Your DVR needs to be transmitting in 5.1 to start with. If this is the case then make sure you select the correct audio function on the receiver.

I would like to know how to connect my Bose 901 to my Yamaha RX-V765 AV Receiver.


Ahhh, the good ole Bose 901. (I like those)... And you want to connect them to the Yamaha RX-V765 AV receiver. That should be a piece of cake. I assume you only have two Bose 901 cabinets. If so, you simply need to connect one end of your speaker wires to the terminals found on the 901 cabinets, and the other end of the speaker wires need to go to the Front Left and Front Right speaker outputs of the RX-V765. The RX-V765 is a 7 channel surround receiver. Weather you run it as a 7 channel theatre or as a more classic 2 speaker configuration, you will want to run the 901 cabs from the Front L and Front R speaker outputs, unless for some reason you want to specifically use them for any of the surround channels in which case it will not harm anything if you use them for surrounds - it's just that if you're simply wanting to use them as your principal speakers, you want Front L and Front R.
So connect them as I explained, power the receiver up, put on your favorite CD and enjoy!

With my RX-V663 can I use presence speakers less than 8 ohms?


Basically you can use any speaker as long as you use the volume button wisely. Damage will only occur if you raise the volume level to the extremes. Bigger speakers should be no problem, if you want bi-amping, your speakers should support that as well.
