Re: Graphic equalizer

In general all equalizers, being designed to be in a Tape Monitor loop, have the option to Equalize either the Source or the Tape or nothing. Check for that control and toggle it. My old ADC SS-525X has pushbuttons whose settings (Tape/Source) are not easily determined. I always have to play around with it to know which is selected.

I'm betting your EQ is processing the program that would head out to an attached tape deck.

How do I turn on the tape monitor on my Onkyo TX-NR901 to use the equalizer I hooked up?

I don't believe you can use the tape monitor (or any recording output) when using the optical inputs.

I plug in the receiver and nothing happens; no light indicaters, no sound

Some commonlpace questions, ok, you don't need an expert for that:
Did you try another electric outlet?
Did you check plug, cable and connections to your receiver?
Did you try pressing on - off several times?

Tx-sr575 7.1 - is there any use in connecting and old power amp and equalizer to this receiver? If so, how?

Ya mean like to hook up Bose 901's? Nevermind.

Utility is in the imagination of the dreamer.

Any analog processor can occupy the Tape Out/In loop. However, it will only affect stereo analog sources and, once engaged to monitor, it will disable any digital audio source.

An external amp COULD be slaved off the tape Out (or the anticipated EQ Out, but it won't be volume-controlled by the Onkyo. You would need an AVR with at least Front L/R pre-outs.

I have just bought a new Onkyo TX-NR808 and set it up over the week end with new 'accusound' surround sound speakers. Have bi-amp the front speakers. I don't think I am getting very good sound out of it?...

Depending on the amplifier, it might not provide enough power (in Watts) to the speakers. If the speakers require more power, it won't be as loud.

My onkyo tx-8222 suddenly stopped amplifying on both speakers and headphones. I can hear music faintly with the volume at max (just the pre-amp?). Time for a new amp?

Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Look for a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

A channel speakers not working on this unit - every other channel works (center, rear and B channel) . All connection have been checked.

The problem is the jumpers in preout front amp in, is where you connect an equalizer or auxiliary amp.You most connect the jumpers if you didnt use the equalizer or the A channel didnt work.
