Question about Yamaha RX-Z9 Receiver

1 Answer

Zone 2 issues

I have an amplifier hooked up to the zone2 outputs on my Rx-z9, outputs are going to the main-in on the external amp. When I go to use zone2 (audio only), which as I understand, I should be able to hear any other separate available source than the one playing in the main source, however I cannot hear any other source other than the Tuner which is a source internal to the Z9, all other sources which are external (DVD, cable, satellite) do not play through Zone2. I have followed all the instructions in the Z9 instruction book (however limited), but cannot figure out why I can only hear the Tuner, my other available sources will not play through zone2. All other sources are connected to my Z9 through a Toslink connection. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

HOW DO I USE A EXTERNAL AMP LIKE A YAMAHA M-85 FOR MY CENTER CHANNEL ON MY RX-Z11 AV AMP


You should have preamp output jacks on the back of the receiver. Hook that up to your external amp input.

I have a Yamaha RX-797 reciever and wish to install an outdoor speaker system through the zone2 outlet. Do you know if I can go from the zone2 outlet through the coupler jacks to the speakers so I can...


Hello sounds like you want to take the low level zone 2 output and run it to the PRE AMP in?

If that is correct the onboard amplifier will power your speakers but will no longer provide sound for your main channel as you are removing the "loop" which send the front L & R signal to the amp.

Your best bet is to find an inexpensive secondary amplifier.

Sonance makes a sonamp 260 or 260x3. These are available on ebay for under $100 and work great for multiroom applications.
A 260x3 would give you 3 speaker outputs allowing you to run not only to your patio but also to two other locations and includes a switch to turn each zone on/ off.

Hope that helps

No Audio when disconnect from external amp and hook to speakers


In a radio like your Pioneer and all similar units there are always a pre-amp circuit that feeds a power amp circuit,In some players there are more than one pre-amp circiuts. It is possible and highly probable that the power amp circuit in your Pioneer is shorted, so you still get some audio output , but very little. I believe this is your problem and I suggest that you bring it to a repair shop for an estimate or replace the unit. Good luck and please rate this answer, Thanks.

Yamaha rx-797 w/Yamaha ge-60 eq utilizing prein/main out ..and ad


It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

Zone 2 connections


go into your amp settings menu then to speaker settings,set zone 2 on and main on, turn up the volume for zone 2 about half way then connect phono cables from zone 2 pre out to a input on the external amp (eg cd input )
never use the phono input this is for turntables,connect this amp to your speaker switch/selector then to speakers.

hope this helps

Zone2 problem


I had the same problem.  Yamaha's web-site states that the zone 2 and zone 3 can only be driven from analog inputs (RCA stereo input jacks), not digital inputs.  If your media center is hooked up with digital connections (such as HDMI), it will not feed the zone 2 or 3.  Yamaha's web-site suggest hooking up both analog and digital feeds.  It claims that the digital will drive the main zone and the analog will drive the other zones.
Good luck...
