Question about Sony DAV-FR1 System

1 Answer

Using the speakers to listen to other componest of my stereo system

I was given the sony DAV-FR1 system. I have a stereo with a tape player, record player, and my old dvd player hooked up to it. I don't really want to set up the six speakers in addition to the four I have hooked up to my stereo system. Is there any way to route the sound from my record player through this system or route my stereo receiver through this system so that I don't have to have the surround speakers and the stereo speakers all hooked up?

Yes, you could have two complete systems crossing over to each other but the sharing will only be in Stereo either way and you will have to decide which one you want to be the Home Base for the other. I would think the deciding factors would be 1) Do you want multiple channel sound; 2) Are your existing speakers far superior to the DAV-FR1's?

DAV-FR1 in charge: If your receiver has one unused Tape (*) or Line Out pair, run a pair of RCA cables to the DAV's SAT Audio In and when you want to hear its attached program sources choose SAT on the DAV. You could also leave the 4 speakers in place or arrange them to augment 5the DAV and hear them all.

* If you use a Tape Line Out pair DON'T select the Monitor on the source or it will de-select any non-tape source going Out to the other Receiver.

Your receiver in charge: Run the DAV's Audio OUT (L/R) jacks to any Line Level input on the receiver (AUX, Tape In).

If whichever direction you wish to use doesn't have a spare Line Input or Output get yourself a pair of RCA cable splitters of the appropriate gender (one male end / two female ends) and share the jacks. Just make sure whichever source you're NOT intending to hear has something inactive selected.

You could even have both. but you would have to take care to NOT induce a circular loop by having each selecting the other as a source.

Shouldn't be a problem as long as you get a record player with a built-in preamp. Old record players did not have a preamp, and will not output a signal at a high enough level to be used through the sony system.

Need a replacement plug for my surround speaker wires


I think you should call Sony and see if they'll sell you a new cable. I did a little poking around on their website and it looks like you can buy additional cable for around $10.

Good luck.
