An equaliser is, put simply, a more complex tone control, giving you the ability to cut or boost more specific frequencies than a tone knob, or bass & treble controls.

It comes in handy for tweaking the sound from your hi-fi to just the way you like it. But beware, as it can make your hi-fi produce sounds that are so bass or treble heavy, that you can damage your speakers if you're not careful.

Adding another compnent into the chain (like a graphic EQ) can add a little background noise but this Technics EQ is a pretty quiet one & you probably won't notice the noise apart from when there's no music playing & you've got the amp turned up high.

Hello....spectrum RS232 cube speakers vs bose red line double cube speakers sound wise what can i expect.....tkx.......scott

Bose Redline day in and day out, twice on Sunday. Spectrum RS232's are "Flea Market" quality speakers. If you really want to spend money on speakers go to a "Boutique"! I hope this is helpful.

Hookingup equilizer to tape deck i dont know i am trying to help my neighbor but of coarse he not home at the moment can i get get back to ya later tonight thankyou todd waddles97@hotmail.como or...

OUTs to INs. Record is IN, Playback is OUT.

Be advised that any analog sound processor on a multichannel AV will ONLY work on analog sources and activation of the Tape Loop will disable digital sources.

SECURE line? Nothing is secure anymore.

I will be upgrading my av receiver soon. The latest editions seem to have an in-house equalizer feature. Should I still use my Technics equalizer, which will give greater benefit ??

If you use the amp for music most of the time I would certainly keep the older eq as I am assuming it is most likely a good quality analog device.

These modern ones are almost all digital and are not as nice or easy to use and probably introduce latency to the signal path. Sound is all about what you like and I would bet that you will prefer the older analog sound over the new digital version.

I am not sure exactly how this would affect the other uses of the new kit such as cinema etc.

Hope this helps Thanks for using FixYa.

How to connect jacks from gemini stereo graphic equalizer eq2010 to harmon kardon avr40

I couldn't find the manual for this receiver, so you may have to adjust some of the terminology below to the labels used on the HK.

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.

The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.

In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).

Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.

The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.

EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Mon as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.

In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Mon is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

Okay, back to the hook-up: Receiver Tape- or VCR Out to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-In; Receiver Tape- or VCR In from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-Out.

If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.

Piuoneer DJM600S feedback and cd input problems

Check List :
CD Deck 1 to Channel 1 CD Input
CD Deck 2 to Channel 2 CD Input
Mixer booth output to AMP's AUX or CD input.
use the BOOTH rather than the MASTER
even if you think you've done all these checks, check them again.
trust me I've been a DJ for 15 years & wired up **** loads of systems & still manage to ******* the wiring now & again lol.
you mite need to run an earth from your mixer to your amp.
One more thing, just out of interest you don't happen to have an amp with surround sound do you?
because if you do then switch the effects completely off this should sort it.

If i am foing to do home recording do i need ............

Not necessarily. You have a built in mixer in your computer, and depending on the source of the input you may not need amplification to record. Playback is another issue, entirely.
There are excellent utilities and hardware for computer recording available, some such as sound cards for purchase and some freeware or shareware (like Audacity). Just google "computer recording" and you'll find links to a lot of helpful information to get you started. If you have xp or vista, you have a built-in sound recorder. But it will depend on your system and the quality you expect to turn out as an end product.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
