Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Why does the volume fluctuate when playing any connected equipment to my receiver?

I have the Kenwood KR-A3060 AM/FM Stereo Receiver and no matter which of my connected equipment that I play, I notice that the volume would get louder on its own for a minute or so and then go back down to the volume I set it at. This problem is most noticeable when playing my turntable and the volume increases where you can also hear a rumbling noise that distorts the sound until the volume lowers again. I also have a CD player, a cassette deck and an 8-track player connected to this receiver.

You are describing one of the inherent problems in assembling various pieces of equipment into a complete system. Unless your Kenwood receiver has some provision for equalizing the various input levels, you will just have to adjust each one manually.

SOURCE: No Sound from Turntable

It definitely has to go through a preamp (a PHONO preamp that is...) something like this: http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html

SOURCE: Kenwood KA-72B Stereo Receiver HELP NEEDED.

Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.

SOURCE: technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

My TV has audio (left & right) & video jacks (red,white &yellow) can I connect my Kenwood KR-V5580 to it for stereo sound If so what do I connect it to video 1 or 2, phone,etc


Audio can usually go either way to a TV. In or Out. Why someone would want to hear external audio through a TV's marginal audio electronics and speaker(s) is beyond me, but sometimes that is what they want.

Take the audio from the receiver via whatever unused Tape or Video function connectors you like to the TV's Audio L & R IN. Anything the receiver processes will be audible through the TV as long as you DON'T select that function for listening on the receiver.

Listening to TV-related audio through the receiver and its (presumably better) speakers makes much more sense, but again, the TV's marginally audio capabilites place a serious limitation on sound quality expectations. In your case, stereo is as good as it could be.

If your TV has Audio Out jacks, just run them to any convenient Line Level input (NOT Phono). If your TV has internal audio controls for volume, set it to Fixed so the TV's volume control doesn't affect the sound going out to the Kenwood.

A better TV-related audio solution would be to connect the BEST audio of whatever source you're watching directly from that source to the receiver. Cable, DVD/BD, SAT always have 2-channel analog RCA connectors as well as (unusable on the Kenwood) digital audio outputs.

VIDEO from the Kenwood to the TV:

You describe your TV having Composite (3 -RCA-style cables). The Kenwood is limited to Composite (Lower-quality, single Video RCA-style cable). Check your TV for a single Video In connection and run THAT from the Kenwood's Monitor Out so you can pass other video through the receiver.

In its day this receiver was pretty high-end but to really enjoy modern multichannel audio from video sources you might consider an upgrade to a true multichannel Audio Video Receiver. For one thing it would support digital audio and probably Component and HDMI video. You could still use the Kenwood's amplifiers to drive speakers or as a secondary system.

My xm plays extremely loud thru my car stereo.no matter what i set the volume at.it is either off when volume is set to zero or loud at any other setting.changing the output level on the xm receiver does...


Are you playing it directly thru your FM antenna connection, or using the RCA jacks? You have to set the FM modulator level. It is also possible that you have a new FM radio with a type of ALC that will raise the lever regardless, but your regular car radio volume control should work. do not wire this directly to a power amp, as you won't have the control that you need. Good luck, let me know more.

Something in the unit is smoked and potentially dangerous. Get that puppy down to a repair shop. Don't leave it unattended if you turn it on. Got a fire extinguisher handy?
