Question about Yamaha RX-V2090 Receiver

1 Answer

No Sound Just picked up a yamaha rx-v2090 at an estate sale...bought new 16gauge speaker wire but not sure how they attach to the receiver. Do I need to purchase another part; an adapter of somesort to insert the wire into first, or do i just simple insert the wire into the speaker connections on the receiver (there are some many connections/which ones do I use). tried searching for a receiver manual but no luck yet. Seems simple but maybe I am connecting something wrong.

Re: No Sound

Three things to look for for the no sound problem:
1) Make sure the pre-out main-in couplers have jumper wires in them
2) Make sure the mute is not engaged
3) make sure the speakers wires are inserted properly. you need to unthread the five-way binding posts before inserting the wire between the post nut and receiver.

Hellow, I own a rx-v2090 , everythings works, the problem is if i crank the volume to 11 to 12 O' clock position, it looses the base and half a minute later it shut itself. please can you explain to me...

Sounds like from what you describe is that your speakers ohms might be to low for the Receiver and making it over heat.Take a look at your speakers ohms rating and then look at what your Receiver is rated for most receivers can handle down to about 6 ohms nothing lower.There are some out there that can handle lower but from what I can see about yours it handles about 8 ohms.

Trying to install my new home theatre

Are you sure the wire is not damaged somewhere? Are you sure that you are connecting the wire to the correct terminal on the receiver? Is the speaker OK?

To test all of this, try different combinations. With Right speaker working, disconnect the wire from speaker and connect it to the left speaker. If it doesn't work, then the left speaker is faulty.

Now disconnect the wire from receiver's right-front terminal and connect to left-front terminal. If it doesn't work, you are either connecting to wrong terminal or the terminal/receiver is faulty.

At last, try using the "left" wire to connect the rigth speaker to right terminal. If it doesn't work, the wire is faulty.

P.S. The +/- doesn't matter for testing, the sound should go either. It is just needed to have all speakers connected in the same polarity, because else the sound waves would eliminate themselves.

Sound not coming through speakers correctly

Check that the speaker setting on the receiver is set to large not small. (if you have 6inch or larger woofers)

If you have only small speakers you will need a subwoofer.

Is there any DTS decorder player that suit with Yamaha RX-V 2090? Thank you.

Try the Technics SH-AC500D Digital Surround Processor. Its outputs should match the inputs on the RX-V2090. I own both units, though I am using a DDP-1 with the Yamaha receiver. I use two separate amps with the Technics to achieve surround sound using my good vintage stereo system (two of them actually - one for front and ane for rear). The Technics is a nice piece of kit.

How to run outdoor speakers from my in house receiver

If you have a button for A and/or B speakers on the front of your unit, then use the A (or B) speaker connections for the inside speakers and B (or A) speaker connections for the outside speakers. Then of course you just select either A or B depending on where you want the sound to come out. If you select A and B then it will come out at both locations. If you don't have A/B speaker selection available on the unit, then you will need a speaker select switch (from Radio Shack) or else wire up a four pole double throw toggle switch to do the job.

Main speakers A and B not working...

Two possibilities for the no sound on the main speakers:
1) May be caused by the lack of the pre out main in jumper on the back of you reciever.
2) Check to make sure the -10db selector is not stuck between positions.
