Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I took my Pioneer SX-450 Receiver and Pioneer CT-1040W Tape Deck apart to move it. Put it back together. Now can't get a tape to play.

Attached L&R cables to the Input (REC) connectors on Tape Deck (I hadn't changed these) and other ends to L&R connectors on the Receiver (these had been disconnected). Attached L&R cables to the Output (PLAY) connectors on the Tape Deck (I hadn't changed these) and the other ends to the L&R connectors on the Receiver (these had been disconnected). Plugged Tape Deck in the "Switched" plug in on the Receiver. Turned Receiver on, Turned Speaker switch to "A", Turned Function switch to Aux. I get a power on light on the tape deck. But when I hit "Play" button, I get no movement in tape or sound. Tried two different tapes, and tried turning them around. No Luck. Any ideas? Thanks, Dan

After putting a known good tape in the deck, push play, if the tape doesn't move, try rewind and FF. If nothing happens, the deck has a problem. I assume this is a cassette deck. If so, I always try the thrift stores for a new(used) one. There are good bargains there.

Where is pre out im having trouble hooking up amp and eq


You have to use the TAPE 2 (or monitor) on the receiver. It will take two sets of RCA cables. Both the receiver and the EQ will have an input and an output.

  • Run the output/REC (from TAPE 2) to the input on the EQ.
  • Then, run the input from the receiver (TAPE 2 again) to the output on the EQ.
The EQ will have another 2 sets of RCA jacks to hook up a second tape deck (because you used the jacks on the receiver for the EQ). You don't have to hook anything to these if you don't want to, or don't have a second tape deck.

The receiver will have a monitor button, which most of the time is labeled as TAPE 2/MONITOR. Select whatever input you want to use (CD, Tuner, Aux, etc.), then press the MONITOR/TAPE 2 button. When that is on, the EQ will be in the audio chain - you'll be able to use the EQ to adjust the sound. If you turn the MONITOR off it will take the EQ out of the audio chain - the EQ settings won't affect the sound.

Keep in mind, the EQ will also have a button to select the TAPE 2 input. If you have a second tape deck hooked up to the EQ, this is how to use it. Make sure that the tape input is off on the EQ, if you aren't listening to that second tape deck.

Do I need an amp for my 3head sony real to real tape recorder


You do need an amp of some kind. On the back of the deck will be RCA sockets, in the red and white ones you plug a line cable to the audio in sockets of an amp or receiver. The other two sockets are record. They go to the audio out of the amp.

Hookin equalizer to tape deck and recever


The equalizer I have seen have Line in, line out, tape in, tape out and that is how you utilize a unit like this. The line IN goes to the receivers tape record out. The line out goes to the receivers Tape play in or monitor, The tape deck hooks to the equalizer. The record or input of the tape deck hooks to the EQ record out, the Tape decks output hooks to the EQ's Tape in connectors. All these are stereo so there are left and right sides which you need to keep consistent. Red on a cable means Right, the white or black on cables mean Left or the top RCA connector on most equipment.
When playing back a tape the tape monitor is turned on with the receiver and left on. The way you record on tape from any source of the receiver is to select that source and it should go to the equalizer. Then the deck should record that source. To play a tape of the deck hooked to the equalizer then just press the tape monitor button on the EQ otherwise the Equalizer will just act as a loop and equalize any signal source that is coming from the receiver and the tape monitor on the receiver should stay on most of the time. Some equalizers have two tape inputs so you would hook another deck to that input and the owners manual of the equalizer should say how to select buttons to transfer tape signals from one to the other. If you master the concept of inputs and output of audio equipment then this hookup becomes another easy thing to do.

Looking to hook up an audiosource EQ100 to an a sony cass deck


Simply place it in line with the analog input. Or install it in a Tape Loop on your integrated amp/receiver and attach your tape deck to ITS tape Loop.

Ins to Outs


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.

Be advised, using analog processors on digital-capable multichannel elcetronics will only work for analog 2-channel sources.

Trying to hook up numark eq2400 to pioneer sx-255r


You have to select any available 'tape loop' .


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to INPUT

Receiver Tape In (Play) - from OUTPUT 1 or 2


A tape deck would hang off the back of the EQ using ITS tape loop.

Amp out and amp in for bose eq.hook up


  • 1

    Examine your receiver to be sure it has a tape monitor loop. Receivers with a tape monitor loop will have a button or switch on the front for "Tape Monitor," and have two sets of RCA connections on the back, one labelled "Tape In," and the other "Tape Out."

  • 2

    Take the two cables that are provided with the 901 speakers and insert one end of the first cable into the "Amplifier Input" jacks of the equalizer. Connect the red connector to the R input and the other connector to the L input. Connect the other end of this cable into the "Tape Out" connections on the receiver. Again, hook red to R and the other to L.

  • 3

    Connect the second cable between the "Amplifier Output" jacks of the 901 receiver and the "Tape In" connections on the receiver. Follow the guidelines in Step 2 for R and L connections.

  • 4

    Plug the 901 equalizer into a 120-volt electrical outlet. Your 901 equalizer is now installed.

    I need advice on how to connect my very old BOSE 901 (with active eq) to this device: Martin Roland MA 3000K I see pre-out and pre-in but cannot locate main-in. Please help here is the back of its image:...


    As you probably know, the Bose 901 Active EQ is there to modify the frequency spectrum fed to the 901's so they will produce a flat response. Without it, they sound acceptable in the midrange but lacking in bass. Since they have no woofers or tweeters, the modification is drastic and should never be applied to non-Bose-901 speakers or they could be damaged.

    This setup should work for mixing and playing but I'm not sure if recordings directly from the unit's REC Out or Line Out would have the Active EQ effect on them. You'll need to perform a few tests to see how it all works for playback AND recording.

    Remove the jumpers for Pre In >> Out

    Insert the Active EQ in their place by running:

    1. RCA cables from Pre Out to the Active EQ In (From Aux, Tape Out)
    2. RCA cables from the Active EQ Out (To Amp, Tape In)

    Use ONLY 901's on this amp with the EQ.

    The Bose Active EQ has its own Tape Rec/Monitor loop to replace the one it normally occupies in a typical receiver application, so if you wish to record your mix you should use those connectors for your tape deck and there will be no problems with the Active EQ effect being recorded. The Monitor Tape/Source switch on the EQ functions just like a typical Tape Monitor. For playback of the recording, switch it to Tape.

    The manual, available at http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/acekaraoke/MA3000K.pdf
    doesn't get into any detail on the innards of the mixer.

    In a typical integrated amp or receiver, the jumpers removed are between the Preamp Output and the Main Amp input, but BEFORE the amp's volume and tone controls, so manipulating them would not affect a recording. You should experiment with it by making recordings through both and adjusting speaker volume to see if it changes.

    I would be curious to know what the functional difference is between the designated LINE Out, REC Out and PRE Out jacks in that regard. Normally, Line Out and REC Out will not vary with amp volume, but I expect in this mixer it does, or you wouldn't be able to control the volume from it. Experiment.

    Of course, you probably want the mixed effects to be recordable, so I assume they'll appear at all outputs. Play back the test recording (at an initial low level, just in case) and see if you can detect an exaggerated low end (due to the 901 bass boost being applied in recording AND playback through the 901's. If the recording volume doesn't vary with speaker volume and the playback sounds as flat as the recording you're good to go.

    If there is are volume variations or an additive effect, you may have to draw the REC Out to the deck's input and run the deck's output to the Tape In on the 901 Active EQ, monitoring only on deck playback.

    UNIT HAS ALL POWER FUNCTIONS BUT OUTPUTS NO SOUND. ANY SUGGESTIONS. HAVE CHECKED THE SPEAKERS HOOKED TO ANOTHER UNIT SO I KNOW SPEAKERS ARE OK. MY SON IS BRAIN DAMAGED AND NEEDS TO HAVE SOMETHING TO LISTEN...


    This comes to mind:
    Did you perhaps connect the rca jacks to the record in instead of the play out?
    Maybe the rca cable is not plugged in at all on either the receiver end or tape deck end.
    Have you tried using a different rca cable?
    Did you select the right input on the receiver?
    You may try using a different input on the receiver.

    I know these sound obvious, but they may fix the problem.

    Connecting Pioneer SX-737 Receiver to computer problems


    I've been recording LPs for over a year now.

    I've got the turntable outputs plugged into the phono inputs on the receiver amp.

    I'm taking the Y cord (pair of RCA connectors at one end, mini plug at other) from the Tape Record (these are what you'd use to send a signal to the tape deck for recording) on the amp to the "line in" on the sound card. You may want to look up the specs on your sound card to make certain that you've got the plug in the correct socket. There may be a "line in" and a "microphone" socket. Use the "line in"

    What recording software are you using? Audacity is free and is ok. I'm using Goldwave (costs ~$50) and highly recommend it. MUCH better than any other package I've tried. Just google "goldwave" to find it.

    The recording software should have an option for selecting / specifying a source. If you have "microphone" selected and the y cord going into the "line in" socket, yoiu won't get anything.
