How do I connect a cd player to both a tv and an audio amplifier so Ican play either Cd's or DVDs?

Does the TV have a line audio outpot (red and white jack)? If so feed the amplifier input from there.

Wish to run sm450v2 Mackie powered speakers thru a Peavey XR8600

The Peavey XR8600 is NOT just an amp, but a powered mixer.

To SAFELY use this with your powered speakers, connect those speakers to the MAIN and MONITOR outputs on the front of the unit with 1/4 inch INSTRUMENT rated cables (NOT speaker cables).

To safely leave the power amps in the XR8600 with no output loads, plug GROUNDING plugs into the POWER AMP 1 and 2 input jacks on the front. This will prevent the power amps in the XR8600 from running with no load which COULD damage them.

Make the grounding plugs from 1/4 inch mono plugs by jumpering the centr aand sleeve terminals of the plug.

Do you have the Impedance switch set for the right cab?

Are you using a guitar cord to connect to speaker cab ?...If so, dont. Use a speaker cable.

Is the damping switch loose?

SUV500 2-Channel Amplifier: Hi! can I connect another technics cd-player,sl...

yes you can connect another cd player to the DAT input of your amp.
input connections like DAT, TUNER, CD, AUX etc (except phono) is just to differentiate between what sources are connected, the amp cannot tell what source is connected and will output the sound no problem.

as for the remote operation, if the 2 technics cd players are switched on at the same time they're going to do what you command from the remote together but you'll obviously be listening to 1 at a time.

I don't know where to connect the main in & pre amp jacks??? to the EQ???

Not sure I understand your question, but I will try.
Your CD players, tape decks, etc., connect to the INPUTS on the preamp.

The LINE OUT on the PRE AMP connects to the LINE IN on the POWER AMP.
The pre-amp does some amplification and then it passes the signal along to the power amp, which will do the heavy lifting - driving the speakers.
The connection is usually through a shielded RCA plug cable. THere will be 2 cables from the Pre amp to the power amp - one for the left channel and one for the right channel.
The OUTPUT Of the power amp will connect to the speakers using large, stranded wire cables, sometimes with "banana" plugs that simply plug into the terminals on the power amp and the speaker.
Let me know if this gets your started.

I have recently purchased a arcam alpha 10 amp to go with my arcam alpha 9 cd player and my monitor audio rs8 speakers. I am pleased with the amp and i am thinking of adding the power amp, the problem is i...

A better solution is like I have mine; use the Arcam 10 connected to the tweeters of your speakers & the power Amp connected to the woofers & link the pre out's on the 10 to the power Amp. using phono cables. The Manual can be downloaded from Arcams discontinued section of their website.
This Bi-Amp method gives a far superior sound than just using the 10 as a pre Amp.

Connection of Amp to Equaliser

Thanks guys, but i solved my problem, i experimented and decided that i would run my DVD player (Aux Out) as a CD player through the Equaliser in [Rec] and from equaliser out [Play] i went into Tape Play on Amp, then i connected my Turntable CD Radio System to the Tape 1 Rec on Equaliser and then from Tape 1 Play on Equaliser went into the Tape 2 on AMP then i could use Aux in on Amp to connect my Laptop via my laptops headphone socket my laptop has an equaliser so i didn't need to connect to pioneer EQ, i also connected a small 5.1 to the DVD's 5.1 and connected 4 *45w Speakers to the AMP. and i can say it was FANTASTIC i couldn't get to 5 on my volume it was un @$#%believable.

Using a tube pre amp with my CA Azur 640A?

There are many answers to your questions but Ill have a go with the basics...
Audio connections should be matched.... its called Frequency impedance,.... to get a signal along wires or cables (or Fibre) the Impedance of the cables and wires must be matched to the device they are connected to transfer the signal along the cables without distortion...

Manufacturers provide many sockets on the input side of amplifiers and preamplifiers to allow the consumer to connect various devices of different impedance.

They label these inputs like CD, or Tuner, or PHONO etc etc,

That means if you have a CD player it must be plugged into the CD input socket then the impedance will be correct and the sound will transfer along the CD cables correctly, without distortion..same with the Phono input etc...
You will find on the sound output to the speakers terminals are also labelled 4-6ohm, or 8-10ohm, these are the impedance expected for the coil ratings of the speakers them selves and its important to get the correct speakers to the correct out put terminals...

In your case all you have to do is follow these simple rules and all will be say you have a squeeze box well there probably isnt a port labelled squeeze box so you need to experiment and try out each input port for the squeeze box to see what input gives you the correct sound output...Watch the Phono inputs as these are very sensative to input sound levels and must be treated very carefully as they have a double stage of sound amplification and as such you need to have the volume right down when connecting up the Phono inputs then increase the volume carefully after the cable connections are completed.

If you follow these rules then all will be well,,,,there is no difference if the Pre amp or Power amp is valve or transistor or FET or has IC outputs to the speaker the same impedance rules apply..just treat it as a box with input and output terminals and all the impedance will be taken care of for you...if you read the lables...

You need to connect you signal source to the Preamp inputs the out put from the Preamp connects to the power amp input then the power amp output goes to the speakers. this is a basic configuration for sound systems, there are other variations but are outside this discussion.
