Question about ADC Kentrox SS-315 Home Equalizer

1 Answer

Can I still used this equipment

I bought an ADC Stereo Frequency Equalizer model SS-315x in the late 1980's. I just bought a Sony Multi Channel AV Receiver model STR-DG510.
Can I still use this equalizer with this new receiver or is the SS-315x too outdated?.
No tape in/out connections on this receiver compared to my old Yamaha Amp/Pre-amp.

Re: Can I still used this equipment

Hi Jerome

You will need either a pre-in pre-out connection on the amp to use, A vcr in/out loop can be used in lieu of a "tape" loop. Or alternatively you can put the EQ in line with the bit of gear you want to EQ. In this day and age, of "many more than stereo" systems, a 2 channel EQ has much less application. Although this seems to "outdate" a piece of gear, most stuff from yesteryear still sounds great, so why stop using it. Good Luck and happy listening. A "FixYa" rating from you would help my profile. I am happy to answer any questions you may still have, put them in here and I shall get back to you.

I have a pioneer VSX D-308 RECIEVER and a electro-voiceevt 2210can it be hooked up together

The Tapco equalizer was a very popular line of equipment which was eventually bought up by Electro-Voice. Could not find any online manuals, however found online images of back panel. It appears to have Tape Ins & Outs.

Unfortunately the equalizer you have is not compatible with the receiver unless you have special cables that have built in transformers. This unit has T&R connectors (tip & ring) meant for professional sound equipment.

On a typical home stereo receiver you would hook up your equalizer with RCA connectors as follows.

1) You take the output of the equalizer and plug it into the input of the receiver.

2) You take the output of the Receiver and plug it into the input of the equalizer.

Start with lower volume and your tape switch on the receiver to the on position. Play with the various controls on your equalizer to

SEQ-711 connection to sony STR D350Z

You can use the VCR audio connections for a stereo analog processor

Many people want to use an EQ with their modern multi-channel Digital Sound Processing gear but at best an analog 2-channel EQ (or any other processor) will only work with analog stereo sources. On most receivers, simply selecting the Tape Monitor disables all digital inputs. However, most DSP can still be employed with analog source material and a 2-channel processor with varying degrees of aesthetic pleasantness. Beauty is indeed in the ear of the beholder.

If that works for you, go for it. I do it, but I fully understand the limitations.
