Question about Denon AVR-3806 Receiver

Computer to Denon via Monster Headphone cable to V.Aux (Front) RCA inputs

I'm using a Monster cable (Headphone Jack to RCA) to play CPU sound on my Denon AVR 3806. Problem is I get all kinds of feedback....

I looked in the Audio-In setup menu and the only options for V.Aux (Front) are Opt (Optical), COAX or OFF?? No option for RCA??

I've tried them all but I still get tons of feedback and can barely hear the CPU audio -- - Is there a setting I'm missing??

THanks for the help

Re: Computer to Denon via Monster Headphone cable to...

Are you using a stereo-mini to RCA cable that has a red and a white RCA plug? What I mean is, you should have the one cable coming out of the headphone jack on the computer, and two (left and right) cables going to the receiver. The only other thing I can suggest is making sure the cables are tight. Maybe try another input on the receiver. There really shouldn't be any feedback unless there is some underlying problem.

I have a denon avr 2000 dsp and want a manual which nobody has and I want to hook up my ipod classic. There isn't any AUX front or rear and I don't have a dock.

To hook up your ipod, get a 3.5mm to rca cable and use your ipod's headphone jack. Just don't turn the volume way up on the ipod otherwise the input signal may to at too high a level for the receiver.

How to hook it to a computer

You have to get a 3.5mm phono jack to 2 RCA cable. Connect the phono jack to the audio out socket of your PC ( green socket at the back of the PC if its a desktop or headphone out socket of your Laptop ) and then the 2 RCA plugs to the CD or Axillary input of the Receiver.You can also use the Video Aux input on the front of some Receivers. Just ignore the yellow socket.bobhifi_2.jpg

Configuring the Aux Input terminals to play my Ipod Nano


You need a cable which goes from RCA to mini jack. The mini jack goes into your ipod and the RCA cable goes into the back of the amp under input heading. Then you just need to set the amp on input via remote or manual and you should be set. Please rate this.

How do I play music from my lap top on this sound system?

your laptop has an audio output jack that is 1/8 inch sterio .. your sound system likely has RCA input jacks .. you can get a cable from radio shack that has a 1/8 inch (3.5mm) sterio plug on one end and two RCA plugs on the other ..
plug the 1/8 inch jack into your computers audio output (headphone jack) .. the RCA plugs will connect to the AUX (analog) input on your sound system .. select AUX on your sterio system to select the computers input .. now you should have great sound from your computer . the computer likely provides only sterio information so the multi (7) channel feature of your sound system will have to fake it ..

Connecting new tv to DRA-685

you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).

Pc to denon av 2802

You can use an auxiliary input on your Denon. What type of connection is available on the sound card? Some models have toslink while most have the mini-jacks which will require an adapter (mini-jack to RCA) which you can connect to the AUX input on your Denon. On the computer, make sure the LINE-OUT of the sound card is activated.
