Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

I am looking to add 2 speakers onto a HTR-5590 by utilizing the Zone B. I would like to set the volume just for the Zone B speakers so that they are at max volume. This way I can control them with the outdoor volume control I have. How would i do this.

If you want separate volume control on a different zone you would have to have a separate gain control available, such as with your center and surround channels for example.
If that option is not available and you have only the master volume control for both zones then you could use active speakers connected to the zone 2 preouts, but being able to control the volume with your extra remote with that setup requires more equipment.

How can I connect Senheiser wireless headphone to Yamaha RX773 without using front headphone jack as this mutes speakers, I have hearing problems, my wife doesn't, I tried both av audio outs in the back...


Your receiver has Zone-2 functionality. For Zone-2, it has both speaker (powered) output and pre-out line outputs. According to Yamaha FAQ, these pre-out outputs are independent on the main volume settings. So if your wireless headphones have their own volume settings, you can change the volume independent on speakers volume.

If you want same volume for speakers and headpohones, use the PRE-OUT FRONT outputs on the back. If you want different volumes (and listen to headphones even with speakers muted), use ZONE-2 OUT outputs on the back.

Hi- I have a Yamaha htr 5990, I am trying to set up a 2nd set of speakers to run off zone 2 or 3 that will power speakers at the patio; but I cannot figure out how to get it to run. Any suggestions as...


to set up a zone 2 or zone 3 set up you need the yahama amps that receive the signal from the main amp, and from that zones amp, you can control that zone, If you check out page 102 of the manual, you will see where it shows these external amps that control that 2 nd and 3rd zone However, if you look at page 85 of the manual, you can just run the speakers off the main, and select B on the speaker selection, leaving main and B on will have sound coming from all the speakers, turn off whichever you want to cancel the sound in either room

I accidentially hit a button on the remote on my Yamaha receiver, now there is no sound coming out of the speakers on the surround sound


Examine the indicators on the panel carefully. I'm sure a clue is there. Maybe a wrong source, mute, speakers off, tape or 6-channel input activated?

Select FM, tune a station, leave the volume set midway and use THAT as a troubleshooting tool. Eventually, you'll find the switch or button.

My htr-6090 wont let my dock be on zone2


Zone 2 will only work with an analog signal (RCA) If you use a stereo mini to rca adapter from the ipods headset jack and plug it into the VAux on the front of the receiver it will work. Downside to this is the audio is "dual controlled" Volume from the iPod and Volume from the Receiver. Set the volume no further than 70-75% on the iPod then adjust to taste with Zone 2. Hope this helps

Hello i was wanting to know if i could hook up my AX-596 amplifier to my Yamaha HTR-5860 reciver


I assume you want to slave it to the receiver and drive some more speakers with it.

Connect some RCA cables from whichever channel pre-outs you want on the HTR-5860 to any input on the AX-596.

Set the AX volume to something sufficiently high, run through the HTR's speaker level setup and match the AX volume to match the channels on the receiver. Then leave the AX's volume alone.
---

If you just want the AX to have access to program sources of the HTR, run the RCA cables to it from one of the VCR1 or 2 Out (but DO NOT select whichever one you use via the front panel). These are not affected by the HTR's volume controls.

I have a yamaha htr 5890. I would like to hook up


You are probably connected to the pre-out jacks. These are not amplified. Connect them to the B speaker outputs(screw down connectors). If that won't work (and it should), you can connect to the "Presence" speaker connections(spring loaded connections).

Denon AVR 1609 volume Zone 2


Logitech recommends that zone 2 is controlled using device mode on your Harmony remote. Controlling zone 1 and zone 2 simultaneously within activities may lead to the AV Receiver turning on and off unexpectedly as you switch between activities. For example, if you try to turn on zone 2 within an activity, it may turn on or off zone 1 and vice versa. Controlling zone 2 in device mode will prevent this from happening.

Zone 2 connections


go into your amp settings menu then to speaker settings,set zone 2 on and main on, turn up the volume for zone 2 about half way then connect phono cables from zone 2 pre out to a input on the external amp (eg cd input )
never use the phono input this is for turntables,connect this amp to your speaker switch/selector then to speakers.

hope this helps
