Connect 5 piece Sony seperates stereo system

Sony 5 Piece Stereo System. (old model, but mmm good)

Hi I just moved house and attempted today to reconnect my stereo system back together. I connected all five pieces below to the amp' and had sound comming from the turner, tape deck (noticed base & output sounded lower on T' deck) on closer inspection I found the tape was playing but the amp' dial was on CD. I have been fannying around since changing the leads from out-put to input from deck to amp but when leads are put into phono socket I get allot of crackling feedback and it sounds worse. I know it must be a matter of inserting the leads in the correct manor, but i'm getting a head ache now & I would just like some straight forward step by step advice on how to insert the leads correctly so that when I turn the amp dial to Tape, CD, Turner, that is what will come on. PS.. I had the tape deck connected to the graph' EQ , would like this to flow.

(more PS... dont' know if this will help stereo leads are Monster Cable)


7 bnd' graph EQ: SEQ-310,
30 stn' random pre set turner: ST-S110,
CD Player: CDP-770,
Stereo cass' deck: TC-RX55,
Intergrated stereo Ampl':TA-F210

    Hi SirHanz,

    Thanks for the advice, I now finaly have sound coming from The CD, Turner and tape, but still experiancing bad sound and crackling via the tape deck and the equalizer turns on but dose not appear to be communicating with the tape deck any further pointers? please feel free to spell out and confirm EQ, deck, & Amp' connections.

    Do you think equip' needs servicing? and what would that entail?

OK, this is pretty easy to do. First connect your leads from the component outputs(i.e., tape, cd, phono, etc) to the recievers corresponding input for the device. Then connect the recievers outputs to your equalizer, if it is a seperate eq. Then the outputs of that to your amplifier, then your speakers to that. Be sure all of your wires are connected with the proper polarity. These instructions may be a little different for your exact setup but basically follow the same order minus any device you dont have.

    Are you sure the tape deck is connected to the tape input on your reciever? There is usually a tape in and a tape out on recievers, so that you can record from another source to the tape deck. Im not to sure about the eq problem yet, but let us know how the tape turns out after checking for the above.

HI, bought a Kenwood stereo full automatic turntable system but no manual and nothing on line. Would appreciate help please with Trio stereo graphic EQ GE-600 Thank you.

First off, you can NOT run the turntable straight through the EQ.
It needs a preamp and needle EQ of it's own first.
Some home amps allow you to loop between the Pre and the Amp, THAT is where you would install the EQ.
You can also NOT just run it into a mixer, it needs that Pre before.
Good luck.

I have a Realistic Model 31-2010 & I want to hook it to my stereo,it's got main-in&out-tape 1 mon&out-tape 2 mon-out,which one do I use to hook up to?

Your 'stereo' should have something like a selectable Tape (VCR/MD/whatever) In/Out pair. THAT is where the EQ's Main In/Out pair connects. INs always go to OUTs. The Tape loops on the EQ are there to 1) replace the one you used to connect IT to the 'stereo' and 2) to provide a way to dub tape-tape with or without EQ.

Some good pix../.

I am trying to work 2 equilizers together in my stereo set

My big Q is - 'Why are you wanting to use two EQs in the first place, when one will suffice. But that is not for me to ponder over. :)

How are you trying to hookup the EQs? I have my eq connected between my preamp and amplifier. The other common method is to insert the eq in the tape loop between cassette and amplifier/preamp. Then select the tape loop to put the eq in the signal loop. You then connect your tape player through the tape monitor jacks on the back of the EQ and select this option in otder to play tapes.

If you have two tape inputs, then you can insert one eq into tape 1, and the other eq into tape 2 and choose accordingly. Bear in mind that you dont have to use the tape in order to use either EQ in your system. Just make sure you are using one EQ or the other. If you attempt to use both, then you run into potential signal 'corruption' (i.e. loss of datta or signal pumping, depending on the frequencies enhanced/attentuated).

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.
