    There is no Line out to use the Amp as a Pre-Amp for the Turn-Table. Because i bought a new Yamaha RX-V 500D, but if i connect the Phono direktly on the Yamaha, (Audio-In), it sounds thin and low.

SOURCE: how many watts onkyo p3300 amp & pre-amp home stereo audio

Sorry I don't know the answer to your question because I don't know the specification of your amplifier but like a car engine that might have a capability of, say, 200 horsepower, in use and for practical purposes that figure is completely immaterial because most of those horses would never be used by a responsible driver. It requires only about 20 horsepower for an average car to maintain 50mph so it hardly matters what the potential power output is as long as it is capable of doing the work assigned to it.

The average person listening to a hi-fi in an average room requires an average power output of around half a watt. It is immaterial if the amplifier is capable of 50, 150 or 500 watts because for comfortable distortion-free listening most of that potential power will never be used.
With hi-fi the problems start with the speaker systems. It is a mistake to use a high power speaker in a domestic environment regardless of the potential amplifier power output. The amp will only produce the power it is capable of if it is driven hard (the volume turned up) and because doing that is anti-social, wasteful and harmful to health and comfort that should not happen but high power speakers tend not to reproduce sound efficiently at low power and so more power must be provided than would otherwise be needed with good low power speakers.
Fashions have changed and it is now difficult to find good hi-fi speakers for the domestic environment that reproduce sound efficiently at low power levels and speakers with a 10 watt rating, the ideal type for small to moderately-sized accommodation, are almost impossible to find these days but it is still possible to find good drive units rated at between 20 and 50 watts that perform fairly efficiently at social volume levels.

How to hook up bose 901 active equalizer to onkyo grand integra pre amp?


You don't.

If you have a pre-amp/power-amp combination then the Bose equalizer connects between the two. If you're using the Bose speakers as front L&R, then the connection is between the front L & R pre-out and the power amp's front L & R pre-in.

I have 2 qustions?


my guess is that the yamaha has pre-amp outs, most yamaha stuff does, and that is the one you should be using for the main, and hooking up to the onkyo, and letting the yamaha be your zone controler, and the onkyo be your remote amp for your second zone (if your onkyo had pre-amp outs it would work how your trying to do it, but it dont) so exchange there places, and run a pre amp out to any input of your onkyo, and you'll have total volume control of your outside speakers

Hookup Blu ray player to Onkyo pre-amp for speakers


If you have audio out jacks from your tv, you would be better served hooking that up to the preamp. If you hook up the blu-ray player separately to both the tv and amp, the audio probably will not sync with the video correctly. The tv takes longer to decode the hdmi input and the audio will be ahead.

Iv connected a set of citronic pd1 dj turntable to aux on my onkyo av amp and the sound is really low volume is set at max.if this is because iv got the wrong kind of amp what connections would i need on...


Turntables that have magnetic cartridges must be connected to an amp that has a "phono" connection otherwise the sound will be too low. I have an Onkyo and that doesn't have one, so I suspect yours doesn't. So what you need is what's called a cartridge pre-amp. This will amplify the signal to the Onkyo. Search online, try Amazon for one.

I have 1 center channel pre-out on back of my kenwood receiver. how do i hook it to the inputs on onkyo m-282 amp and then to center channel speaker?


Unfortunately can't connect it that way. The pre out is only meant to go directly into an amplifier that has all of the same inputs (front/rear, center and surround), not a standard receiver. (Pre amp to amp only, not pre amp to receiver) If your Onkyo doesn't have all the same inputs as your Kenwood preamp has outputs you will just use your standard left/right outputs from the Kenwood to your Onkyo input (CD, Tape, Phono,DVD etc) then use the outputs (front/rear, center and surround) from your Onkyo receiver and connect directly to your speakers..

P-301 onkyo pre-amp


Hi juicer, If you use the switched outlet, then everything will be turned on/off when you operate the preamp power switch. Use the unswitched, then you have to turn off each unit separately. You choose which one you want. It wont matter.

What connection do you intend to use to connect the LBT zx6 to the Onkyo preamp??
