Question about Technics SA-DX930 Receiver

1 Answer

Technics SA-DX930. I ran digital optical cable from the TV to the receiver using the tv/dss mode. It worked well for 4 months. It stopped working. I can get sound out of the receiver and speakers using other audio cable. No sound/nothing in the tv/dss mode thru the optical cable. Do I have a bad cable.... blown fuse or what?

If the only thing not working is the optical input, it is possible that the optical converter is defective. Without seeing the actual unit and testing the IC, I can't say for sure. If you have test equipment, let me know and we will attempt to track this down.

I moved and cannot find manuel for sa-dx940 need instruction on how to reconnet wire to t.v. and speaker


The Technics SA-DX940 is made by Panasonic. The manua as a PDF is available here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SADX940.PDF . The directions for connecting the speakers start on page 14. The connection to the TV is on page 10. To use the SA-DX940 as just external speakers for your TV, connect either the digital audio out from the TV (if it has one) or the RCA audio out from the TV to the matching TV audio in on the SA-DX940.

I hope this helps.

Technics SA-DX940 Digital optical audio input


When you say you have sound from the BD prior to disc load... where (TV and/or receiver)? Initial wake-up audio is usually 2-channel.

Describe the optical audio connection input to the receiver and any other audio paths that are attached.

Do you have other multichannel sources you could use to test this, like a cable TV box?

There's an obscure setting in the receiver called PCM Fix (on Page 21). Give that a look.

I have a technics sa-dx930 receiver and want to hook it up directly to the tv without running it through the dvd/vcr... How would I go about setting it up and what cables go where... Sorry woman here not...


It would help to know some details about tour TV - like its make and model. Or do you mean the CABLE BOX?

And there are TWO signals to consider - audio and video. WHICH is the one you need to hook up without involving the dvd/vcr?

Let's start with basics:

1) TV's are not audio sources. They are end-units for video and its medium-fi audio.

A TV's internal audio capacity is more a convenience for stand-alone listening than a serious approach at hi-end audio. Many of us have monitors with NO audio capability.

TV-related audio and video are best VIEWED via direct video connection to the TV; and HEARD through direct digital audio connection to the receiver.

2) The one NECESSARY connection you need from the receiver to the TV is the basic VIDEO that let's the receiver communicate with you through the TV.

Connecting sub speaker to technics sa dx930


Yes, if it only has speaker-level inputs it would require an amplifier to properly drive it. Name the sub and maybe we can answer the second question.

Digital optical output for technics 5.1 surround sound receiver


I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

Input signals Marantz SR4003


There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

I hooked two Receivers up in series a Technics SA-DX930 and a different kind I'm not sure wut kind. They worked great for a while, but when they got turned up a little louder they both quit puting out...


you blew your power amp board, you cannot hook them in series due to impediance matching and improper input levels, cheaper to replace reciever than the board
