"Technics SA-AX720" and usb

I have found my old reciever Technics SA AX720 with its matching cd player. The only problem I have now is that it don`t have an usb input... I put most of my music in ordinary memorystics theese days and just plug them in our (oh so cheap) stereo.. Is it any point still using my old reciever? I miss it, the sound was good and I sure have as lot of memories with it lol
Any idea what to do?

    It sounds a bit difficult this..

  • karolineri May 28, 2009

    It isn`t possible to just use an mp3 player and in some way use some sort of wire between theese two? hmmm

    well, back to googeling hihi

  • karolineri May 28, 2009

    hmmm they are all mono and is for tv..

  • karolineri May 28, 2009

    oki, what kind of wire?

    (Must thank you again for answering my question :) )

  • karolineri May 28, 2009

    use usb rf modulator, it has remote too, you can change the songs by remote

    But this sounds really cool, you don`t have a link?

  • karolineri May 28, 2009

    oh, so if I throw away the technics cd player and buy a newer one I`m off to go? That is sure a solution!

  • karolineri May 28, 2009

    Wait a minute, I want to use this reciever in a room where it also is a tv with a dvdplayer in it! Maybee theres the answer (running upstairs to check if the tv have an usb input :D

    (This is one of those days I wish my man was a bit technofreak, wich he is not, totaly useless lol )

  • karolineri May 28, 2009


    the tv has a card reader and a usb input yeah!!

    Wait a minute.. then I HAVE to have the tv on all the time.. And it is something nostalgic over the reciever and cdplayer together..


    maybe the mp3 player is the best solution, but then again, which kind of wire..

    phono cabel vs. mp3 (which also use usb...) theres a jungle of technostuff out there lol

SOURCE: Technics SA-GX490 reciever

Disconnect receiver from power and open the unit. Localize fuse that is placed on small PCB between main transformer "big one" and rear panel.Fuse's amperage is 1.6 A .I'm quite confident that fuse is gone.If so, replace it with the one of same amperage and try unit.
My unit has done exactly the same to me with no reason.

SOURCE: Max. wattage for speakers w/ Technics Receiver SA-GX100?

I too have a Technics SA-GX100 and it's rated at 2 x 40W @ 8 Ohms. I have the Technics SB-2840 floor model speakers hooked to it, which are rated at 200W Music Input - 8 ohms. It sounds very nice just to be a 40W receiver.

SOURCE: Technics SA DA20

I have a Technics SA DA20 control receiver. I was given it by an electronics workshop and it has this same error of OVERLOAD coming into the display when switched on. I removed the plates from underneath and re-soldered as far as I could all the points along the stereo amplifier ICs and as far as access would allow. The unit then worked normally for several hours. I was very pleased, and went out shopping!. But on my return after it had been off for about an hour, the same problem has come back. But my boss at the electornics workshop thinks it it just a dry joint, or series of dry joints. The unit is complex to dismantle, so patience and care is required in taking it apart and making a note or diagram of how it comes to pieces and how to re-assemble it after the board has been re-soldered. It does not appear to be a component problem or fault with the SVI power amplifier ICs.

Trying to hook up SH-AC500D to SA-AX720 Receiver. I wanna know the right wires to use. Thank you

Connect the 6-channel analog outputs of the AC500 to the 6-channel analog inputs on the AX720 using 3 RCA cable pairs.

Digital sources will enter the AC500 and be converted to 5.1 analog output.

Be advised, that input on the receiver will not allow any internal DSP manipulation. WYSIWYG.

My Technics SA-GX100 Reciever worked for a minute, but when i set it up with all the speakers and attachments, it says "muting". i dont have a remote, so how do i UNMUTE it?

According to my Technics SA-R210 manual to UNMUTE without the the following......PRESS BOTH THE VOL UP & DOWN CONTROLS & THE LOUDNESS SWITCH ON THE UNIT AT THE SAME TIME......Not sure it will work for your model but that is what it shows for The Technics SA-R210 model, so it should be pretty much the same

Technics SA-AX720

Look for lossing solders points or bad conections. Start to look on those components of hi wattage and components to get hot alot, those are the most common to have weak solders spots.
Also some equipment need to be clean because the dust can make problems.
good luk.
