Question about Kenwood VR-707 Receiver

Linking DVD/CD to Receiver

Was wondering what is required to link the Kenwood Receiver VR707 to a 5 disc Sony Carousel that appears to only have two output ports from the DVD to link to the 6 ports for the Dolby Digital 6.1.


Can anyone share how they were able to do this?


I can only seem to get two speakers working at a time.

Re: Linking DVD/CD to Receiver

You use rca cables to hook them up to each other. On the back of your Reciever make sure it is hooked to the cd. There should be speaker outlets in the back of the reciever. You should have suroundsound, Center, left and right speaker ports. I've never seen just 2. Crazy

If the CD player has left and right outputs and the receiver has those inputs for a CD or DVD then there's a start.
Speakers...match them up to positive and negative with no power to either component.

Kenwood vr-405 receiver

I have the 405 as well. My TV has an optical out and I run that straight to the 405 optical input. I set the input selector to DVD/CD (not DVD)and presto! TV audio out my speakers. It all comes down to the audio connections on your TV.

Since the receiver eventually works, the delay circuit is failing. This is a circuit that allows the power supply to settle down before kicking in the output relay. This prevents the "pop" that was sometimes heard on older units. This should be a simple and inexpensive repair probably requiring the replacement of a couple of small capacitors in that delay/protection circuit.

SX-1600 + KD-491F

Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

The main purpose of that "Protection" mode is to save the electrical circuits placed inside of the amp. Therefore; I think even if a case of short circuit caused by touching wires can not damage your amp completely but maybe a bit. You had better contact with a Sony service which is close to you. The second point is that your 5 disc Sony dvd must be fine. Don't worry about it.
