Technics SH-AC300 Connection to Power Amp & Pre-Amp

I have a Technics Processor SH-AC300 & a Technics Power Amplifier (SE-A900s) & a Technics Stereo Control Pre-Amp (SU-C800U) & I want to connect these components together to work properly.

I have 2 Front Speakers, a centre, 2 Sourrounds & a subwoofer, so this Power Amp of mine don't have the outputs for the surrounds, sub & centres so I thought the processor would help but It doesn't seem like.

Please help.

Re: Technics SH-AC300 Connection to Power Amp & Pre-Amp

The problem is, that your SH-AC300 needs an amp with 5.1 input (but no decoder). For this purpose technics delivered SA-AX710.
So if you'd like to use your current equipment it would be impossible.
The only option is for you to buy 2 more Power Amps (SE-A900S), so that each of 3 amps would take care for one part of music. (one for FL, FR; one for RL, RR; and one for sub and center).
Another option is for you to buy SA-AX710. Then all the problems would be solved with it.

Would I be able to connect an external Technics SH-8036 Stereo Graphic Equalizer to my Technics SA-500 receiver?

Yes, it is hooked up using the (cassette) tape inputs and outputs. Use the tape monitor switch on the receiver to switch the EQ in or out.

Is the Phono output on the RX4109 considered a preamp output in to a Power Amp?

The phono connection is an INPUT and it is a low impedance circuit. It is easily overdriven because the signal that goes into it is very small. You plug a record player into it. Any pre-amp connections on an audio device are in place after equalizer controls. There are no pre-amp connections on the Sherwood.

Can i hook up a power amp to my denon avr-3300 with out a pre-amp

Yes. Your receiver has the required pre-out connection terminals needed to go to an external amplifier. That would make your receiver operate as the pre-amp/processor.

I have got the technics SH-EH550 UNIT, but i want to utilise the suround sound functions of the SH-EH750 unit on my system. is it just a case of unplug the EH550 unit and replace that with the EH750 unit...

As you stated technics SH-EH550 UNIT can be replaced with SH-EH750 unit ,
Since this unit has the main power Amplifier with suround sound functions in it,you do not need the other units unless you do not plan to use..

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.

Hello i need help please..... I have a Technics SU-Z550 and SH-8055 Graphic Equalizer My amp has lost power... lots.! its working one channel louder than the other but the one which is louder still has...

If the same channel is dead on the EQ as is dead on the amp there may be a correlation.

Let's break this into its two parts.

1) SU-Z550: You don't say WHAT source(s) you tried to use on the CD/AUX, TUner and PHONO inputs. The external device itself could be the source of the low volume. Try swapping the Left and Right cables to see if it follows the source channel or stays with the amplifier channel.

Check the controls on the amp to make sure you understand each one's effect on the sound.

"PHONO" is literal and exclusively FOR A TURNTABLE - NOTHING ELSE - EVER.

2) SH-8055: Equalizers don't 'boost' sound, they modify its levels at various frequencies. To do that they should be connected into a Tape loop on your amp. OUTs go to IN's. Then you select the Tape Loop on the amp and that inserts the EQ into the signal path of whatever source you're listening to. It's actions are BEFORE any other amplifier controls such as volume, tone and balance. The EQ itself also has a Tape Loop to replace the one it occupies. Make sure it is not enabled unless you have a Tape Deck on it to use. Choose "SOURCE". The blue LED display is to show you frequencies are present in the program material.

Set all of its lighted band controls at midpoint prior to declaring it defective. EQ is like any spice - a little is good, a lot ruins the recipe.

Since you have so many items in your music system, it is the correct connection that matters. Any wrong connection (sequence wise) will give errors. So, follow the instructions that came with each one of them.
