7.1 Reciever vs 5.1 Speakers

I am in the market for a new reciever with HDMI passthrough. Most of these recievers are 6.1 or 7.1 channel recievers. Can I connect my 5.1 Bose speakers to a 7.1 channel receiver? Will I miss audio, that is split out to the 2 additional channels?

Re: 7.1 Reciever vs 5.1 Speakers

Are you gonna miss audio, well that is up to you, this is individual. 7.1 has two additional speakers - center left & right. My personal opinion is that it matters when you have your system installed in large space. Or you can by another two speakers an ad it. Good luck

How do i hook up my tascam 122 cassette deck to my Nad 7155 reciever i tried

The RCA outputs sockets on the 122 connect to either tape 1 or tape 2 "PLAY". on the Nad.
The Line In Jacks on the 122 connect to the record of tape 1 or tape 2 rec of the Nad.
If you connect it to tape 1 connect both to that.

To listen to the deck you select either tape 1 or 2 depending which you have connected it too.

On a kenwood KR597 reciever, where do i hook up my KE597 graphics equalizer. Also must i remove my DP-R797 cd player to hook up my Maeantz PMD520 Cassette deck? Finally divorced

If you only have one set of tape in/out connectors, then hooking up two tape decks and an equalizer is going to be difficult. You could hook the "tape out" to one tape deck, that tape's output to the second tape, and the second tape's out to the equalizer, connecting the output of the eq back to your receiver....

A low hum that becomes louder as my Akai GX365 D Reel to reel Tape recorder warms up.

Capacitors are good at causing hum, but it could be something like a semiconductor. Since it's in both speakers you are looking for something common to both channels. So could be in the power supply part. Another possible culprit is an IC where both channels go in. IC and Transistors that cause problems as the get hot can be traced by blasting the device with Servisol Freeze Spray. You wait while it's at its worse. Then spray the suspected devices one at a time. If the hum, goes when sprayed you should have found the faulty part!

Do I need a new equalizer?

Karla, Equipment and water especially SALT water (AND SALT AIR) don't mix very well. The constant high moisture environment affects all the connections (the wires) the rca connectors (where one thing plugs into another, AND the switches. The wires may LOOK good but the connections may not be. When you say "all seems to be in good condition" tell me specifically how you checked them. Sometimes they LOOK good, but ar not making connection. While your stereo is ON, get in there and wiggle everything and see it the speakers come back on.

My first guess is your amplifier/reciever. Does it have speaker switches? If it does, move them up and down or click them many times to see if you can work the corrosion a little. This may help.

I'll try and help, let me know some of the stuff I've asked fo above.

Just connect you EQ to your receiver as if it were a tape deck: EQ's outs connect to receiver's tape ins (play) and EQ's ins connect to receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you hook the tape deck up to the tape ins and outs on the EQ: Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and tape deck ins connect to EQ's tape outs (record).

This will put the EQ in your receiver's tape loop. To hear the EQed signal with all receiver sources you'll need to engage the 'Tape Monitor' button or switch which will route the tape loop to the speakers.
