I have a sony STR-DE705 receiver purchased in USA. I am moving to another country where the voltage is 240 volts/60Hz power supply. My question is: Is it possible to use a step down voltage converter and use this receiver while I am temporarily there? Thanks for your response. Regards,

Yes you can use a step down converter,but remember to use a higher rating converter.if your receiver need 100w ( or 1A )then you need a converter at least give 150w ( or 2A ).

Can I and how do I hook a subwoofer to my Sony str-de705 receiver

It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including .

Here is an example of an active subwoofer: . This is the Yamaha YST-SW012.

I hope this helps.

If you are using bare strand wire for your speakers, check all terminals on both ends to see that they are tight and there are no stray copper strands.

Soon as i turn power on my sony receiver goes straight to protection mode can i disconect the fuse to reset it

Resetting probably won't fix it, Sounds like it needs output transistors and some resistors and/or fuses

How can i use Sony 5.1 Receiver STR-DG520 in India (120V to 230V)

Sorry, but according to Sony this set operates only on 120 volts at 60 hertz. As we have no real need for up converters here in the USA, I cannot recommend one for your application. The best course would be for you to visit one of your local electronics stores and provide them with the specific current requirements. I'm certain that an appropriate converter is available in your area.

Hello. my sony receiver is flashing protector mode and no sound is coming out. how do I fix this? thanks, Suzanne

More than likly the built in amplifier is dead and its time to lay it to rest. Before you do that, make sure all your positive and negitives are correct and that none of the wires are touching one another.

No right channel output

Broken wire, or bad connection to the head unit.
