I have an audiosource eq-200 and am looking to connect it to my denon avr-2807. i ultimately would like to fine tune anything listened to through the receiver...or is this not the best way. i listen to music, watch dvd's, watch t.v., & still use my vcr. how do i hook this all up to work through the equalizer?

Re: hooking it up!
If the amp has PreIn PreOut connections, then thats the best way to go. Home theatre amps however, have 5 InOuts, and this makes it hard. You can use the tape loop. Hook up the rec out on amp to inputs on EQ, and output of EQ to tape in an amp, then engage the tape monitor function whilst ensuring that the rec selector has the source you wish to use the EQ for.

Traditionally, the EQ would be in one the tape loops and the D (and all other sources) would be attached to your receiver and a tape Deck would be on one of the EQ's Tape Loops so you would have flexibility to use the EQ with ANY source; and before or after a Tape Deck.
Bear in mind that an AVR (digital multichannel receiver) will NOT pass any digital audio to or through an EQ and that activation of a Tape Loop on an AVR disables all digital sources.
Treat each EQ (or any processor) as as Tape Deck and place it on its own Tape loop on the Denon. Tape deck(s) can attach to external processors because they always have tape loops to replace the one they use.
Rule of Thumb: OUT's go to IN's.
You can have as many processors as you want. I have five.
You can serialize processors if they would logically be used together or you could get a dbx-200 or dbx-400 Program Route Selector which provides connections and switching facilities for 3 processors and 3 tape decks but uses only one tape loop on the receiver.
Individual processors can be engaged or disabled, and the whole mess can be placed in the record OR the playback end of the chain - all via front panel switches. Very versatile.
You need to connect the THX-44 Between your processor and power amp
If you have a reciever you need to use the pre-out / post in order to loop
I also suggest using ROOMEQ WIZARD to determine what frequencies to correct.
FOR EXAMPLE IF YOU WER HOOKING IT TO A CD PLAYER,, YOU WOULD PLUG RCA JACKS IN THE LINE OUT ON THE CD PLAYER,, THEN PLUG THEM IN THE EQ WERE IT SAYS LINE IN OR AUDIO IN,,THEN TAKE SOME RCA JACKS PLUG IN THE EQ TO AUDIO OUT, THEN TO YOUR RECIEVER,, IN CD ,,AND VISE VERSA ,,WETHER ITS A TV OR PHONO,, ANYTHING,,
