Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

I have an integrated amplifier ( NAD 314 : 35 W PC) with a Main in & preamp out jacks. They have metal jumpers that are u-shaped. I wanted to know if I can use my NAD as a preamp for my Carver M-500t until my old preamp is fixed. I would also like to connect my Klipsch ( KG 4 & Ref 3 ) speakers. 
I am not sure on the procedure ?? I think I connect the pre-outs of the integrated to the output of the Carver but am not sure about connecting the  speakers ? Not bi-ampable speakers .
Regards Tim

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

    Sorry, you need to set the gain control on you power amp i.e Carver and not on the NAD.

How to connect bose 901 to yamaha htr -6090


Sorry, it doesnt look like you can hook up an external EQ while still using the amplifier section of the yamaha. Instead, You would have to use the preamp out to go to 901 EQ, out of the EQ into another stereo amplifier, then to the 901 speakers. Personally, to power the 901's properly, I'd use another external amplifier. You will barley get 35 watts per channel out of the receiver to power the 901's

Hi There, I have a Marantz SR7005 Receiver and Bose 901 Series VI speakers with the Bose equalizer. I'm struggling to figure out the best way to connect the Bose equalizer/speakers to the SR7005. ...


It sounds like you've read one of my many posts on 901 deployment in the AV world.

Functionally, what is the difference between one amp with 'x' channels or 'x' mono amps? Nothing. Pre-outs don't know or care what else an external amp does.

According to this link http://www.ecoustics.com/electronics/products/new/642968.html those amps are 2- and 5-channel, respectively.

There was a time when I had two bridged-mono Carver Cube atmps (at a real 400 watts) pushing one 901 each but that was big time overkill.

I now use a Carver AV-406 (functionally the same as your MM7055) with the 901 EQ in between the AV Receiver's front pre-outs and two 110-watt channels. Other channels on the AV-406 pull subwoofer and surround back duties. My AVR directly powers only the center and surround speakers.

The MM7025 would work for you.

hi,
check ur speakers first is it working or not. u said above that the sound is getting through the head phone. the headphone out is also coming from the main amplifier by reducing power using resistors. so amplifiers have no problem. also check is there is any switch for speaker A and B and is it OFF or ON.

Get a separate amp for the 901's and the rest falls into place.

1,2, 5) Place the 901 Active EQ between the pre/main front OUT of the receiver and the TFM-55X. Attach the 901's. Keep track of the jumpers you remove from the receiver. Or replace the jumpers with RCA splitter cables so you still have pre/main connection but can share the output with the TFM.

3) Pinnacle subwoofer (self-powered?) to the subwoofer out of the receiver.

4) Bose (AMS???) 5. As surrounds on the receiver. Place the sub module toward the rear so it mates sonically and directionally with them.

What? No center speaker? I'd get something more robust with bass capabilities, like a pair Bose 301 series 1's because the tweeters face in one direction only.

Except for the amps and the cube stuff that is essentially what I have. 6.1 with full-range speakers everywhere.

Center channel dosen't work on 10 yr old marantz 500$ receiver. Should I just buy a new one?


I'd do some more investigation first. Have you determined if the amplifier for the channel works or if it's a preamp problem using the built-in speaker setup controls?

With this unit's great audio processing features you might be able to bypass a failed amplifier using the pre-outs and drive an external amp for the missing channel.

You could always just get a modest stereo amp (like a Carver M-100T and bridge it), or use the extra channel for another center speaker or a subwoofer, for example.

Need to connect yamaha htr6130 receiver to an elan amplifier


Why don't we deal with the issues separately?

What are you trying to accomplish with speakers all around the house. Or did you mean around the ROOM?

You can't slave other amps off of this unit and have volume or source control at the receiver. It lacks any Preamp Outputs.

Tell us what you want to do, how things are connected (in detail) right now and maybe we can help you out.

It might also be helpful to know WHY you need to have multiple amps.

Bose 901 Active EQ Loop


There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. For one thing, the other speakers around the room are not designed to recieve its Active Equalization and for another, if you engage your Tape Monitor you will not be able to play digital sources. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on my receiver it disables any digital inputs.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers. You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

Run the dbx and BSR in tandem with each through the tape monitor loop on the receiver but be advised you can only use them on analog source stero material. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread the sound around the room.

At my PC workstation across the room I have a stack of analog processors and sources including dbx 3bx-ds, dbx 120x-ds, BSR Spatial Enhancer, BBE 462 Sonic Maximizer, SS-525x EQ, Carver C-9, dbx-224x, JVC cassette deck, Dual 1249 Turntable running through a Garrard MRM-101 Preamp, Pioneer PDR-509 CD Recorder and the Media Center PC stereo analog channels all running through a dbx 400x Program Route Selector (a godsend) which is attached to my ONE TAPE MONITOR on my Pioneer VSX-36TX Receiver. Of course, I have some of my analog processors running in tandem, too, since the 224x only has three processor and three tape loops.

For listening/recording anything 2-channel analog I engage the stack through the Tape Monitor. For everything else I turn the Tape Monitor off. The nice thing about the stack being separate is that I can doodle with recording and use headphones while the TV/DVD/Blu-Ray do something else.

Looking for a good amplifier


Any 2-channel (or greater) receiver or integrated amp with at least one Tape Monitor loop; or any separate amplifier - will work. I would look fror one with true > 100 watts per channel, all channels driven, 20-20000kz + a few dB, with less than 0.5% Total Harmonic Distortion (in other words clean and powerful) should suffice. Specific brands don't matter. I'm partial to old Carver amps.

-----

However, should you get a multi-channel amp for the 901's you will be limited to using only 901's on it as the required Active Equalizer would affect all speakers attached to the amp, and conventional speakers would not sound right and could possibly be harmed by it's drastically-altered frequency response. Since using the Tape Monitor on modern DSP Receivers disables their digital inputs, that would limit what you could listen to, should you later decide to go with Cable Box, DVD, SACD, DVD-Audio, Blu-Ray, DTS etc.

* There are no some multichannel receivers out there that allow separating the preamp-amp circuitry for each channel to allow for differences in speaker processing. I think Marantz had one.

However, having a 901-based multichannel setup myself, I would highly recommend getting the Full Monte for video listening (below)...

In that case a separate stereo amp for the 901's would work. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.


Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Write off the Tape Out as an input if you use it to extract the Front L&R channels. DO NOT monitor it or you'll chop the 901's out of the signal path AND kill any digital source audio in the receiver.

---------

So to sum it up, I think you should start with a powerful, clean amp with few bells and whistles for the 901's and maybe later add a multichannel receiver with all the magicfor source control, DSP and to drive the other channels.
