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.

Carver TFM 35 amp what is the best way to hook it to a Marantz AV8003 pre app


No. You should use the line(or preamp output) to the Carver input. The only way you could use the tape output is if the Carver has input volume controls.

Why does my carver receiver keep blowing the 4 amp fuse??(4amp 125v)


check speaker wires for shorts. verify correct speaker impedance (if amp if for 8 ohms, don't use 2 ohm speakers. Make sure not overheating issues with junk on top of amp.

What is the maximum speaker wattage for a NAD c340 integrated amplifier?


The specs say 2x50W into 8 ohms. I could not located the 4 ohm specs, but it is logical to assume that you can run 2x100W into 4 ohms.

The back panel seems to imply that 4 ohms is a limit for speakers.

So any speaker over 100W capability should be fine, either 4 ohms or 8 ohms.

Best amps for bose 901


You need an amplifier with at least 200 wpc to get the most out of your BOSE. Look into getting a NAD, ADCOM or CARVER amplifier. I prefer CARVER myself. I am running a CARVER M-500T(251 wpc) on my 901's and they sound incredible.

Connecting NAD 2600a amp.


Never connect incompatible connections. Speaker outputs are for speaker inputs. Period.

The various inputs on this or most any amp are for Line Level signal with the exception of anything explicitly labeled "PHONO" as that would be for a non-preamplified turntable ONLY.

From what I have found online, Lab-In was a NAD feature that restored the frequencies that were rolled off when turntables were being used in the (assumed) preamplifier that fed this amp.

http://web.295.ca/~peak//audio.html

"NAD belleived at the time that practical PHONO stages and the preamp and power amplifier stages be rolled off at subsonic frequencies to prevent subsonic wow and flutter from Turntables and supersonic frequencies (EMI/RF/Radio) signals from getting into the system in the first place. Their notion was that if your ears cannot physically hear it, then why amplify it. For the PURIST, there were a set of LAB IN amplifier inputs with more extended response called "LAB IN" inputs"

Use the Lab In's UNLESS you have a turntable source.

Latest model surround receiver for bose 901 speakers VI


I can think of no reason any amp pushing 120 watts would not work with 901-VI's. They're very efficent and will probably play louder and cleaner than you would ever need. As I recall, my old series IV's have no maximum amplifier rating specified, but I did blow up a bridged Carver M-400 Cube (pushing 400 watts to one speaker with a DVD-Audio of Yes - Fragile cranked dangerously high) with them. I'm convinced my speakers are indestructible in any home application.

Keep in mind that whatever you decide to use as your control/amplifier section, a pair of 901's need a dedicated stereo amplifier. I suspect you're thinking surround sound so a receiver with separable preamp/amp channels, due to the Activbe EQ, would be needed and as far as I know they don't exist. 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 and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surrounds.

Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. 120 clean watts is good. I'm using only 110W for mine.

A Carver M-200 is a fine, efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

PreAmp to Amp problem


Sorted it. You have to put the plugs back in the PreampOUt/Main in or it cuts out the pre-amp.

It is most probably a dirty speaker protection relay. gently tap the relay(the one that engages shortly after turning the amp on) when the fault is occurring and see audio returns. This should ascertain the problem. Replace it if it is a sealed type, or if it has a "lid" you can get off, burnish the contacts with a white business card, and give it a spray with contact cleaner/lubricant. Good luck and a "fixYa" rating would be great for my profile :)

possible short in speaker system. Disconnect the speaker to that channel. if it does not click off then you have a short outside the amp in your wiring or in the speaker.
