    Its preamp to amp. But what are you going to use the preamp for?

    Most amplifiers have the preamp already built into them.

Hi Jimmy

The output of the preamp connects to the input of the power-amp, left and right channels respectively. Some preamps (like NAD) can have more than one set of outputs, is this what you are dealing with? If you can give me the make and models of the gear then I can help you more... :)

Graeme

I have an older creek 5350se. It has what appears to be bridging pins connecting the pre with the power sections of the amp. Can I connect the creek as a pre amp to a power amplifier.


Hi Lorne,

You can use the amp as a pre by removing the 'jumpers' - or as a power if required.

The 'jumpers' are simply used to connect (or disconnect) the amplifier's pre & power sections.

Hope this helps.

Power amp r b 981 no power to the speakers. Pre amp seems to be ok. Headphones work.


Check the headphone socket if it cuts out the speakers (normal use) when you plug the headphones in. If it doesn't and you have a switch to switch off the speakers when listening to headphones, check the switch. It may be physical damage or dirt causing the problem, or even loose soldering on the headphone socket. But the fact that headphones work shows the main amp is working. Also make certain the speakers are connected properly.

What is the funtion of tape out, tel, pre amp out , power out, vox, alc... & what is aux dfrs???


Tape out and tape in are to connect the record and playback leads of a tape deck. Pre-amp out is to connect a Power Amp to the unit. The pre-amp will only take the signals from the various sources and amplify them, but only to a weak level. The main reason people would use this is to connect a more powerful amp to the unit.
The Power out could be either the mains power for a turntable or for connecting a pre-amp or maybe to another to amp.
Haven't got a clue to the others sorry!

I have an old Hitachi HT-45 turntable that I just pulled out of the closet. I plug it into my amp and I have to turn it up all the way to hear anything???


It will need a pre-amp to connect it to your newer amp. The old style turntables normally used a magnetic cartridge that older receivers / amplifiers had a special phono input (which incorporated an internal pre-amp) to connect and hear at normal volume settings. Newer receivers / amplifiers normally do not have this type of phono input, thus the need for an external pre amp device.

I don't know where to connect the main in & pre amp jacks??? to the EQ???


Not sure I understand your question, but I will try.
Your CD players, tape decks, etc., connect to the INPUTS on the preamp.

The LINE OUT on the PRE AMP connects to the LINE IN on the POWER AMP.
The pre-amp does some amplification and then it passes the signal along to the power amp, which will do the heavy lifting - driving the speakers.
The connection is usually through a shielded RCA plug cable. THere will be 2 cables from the Pre amp to the power amp - one for the left channel and one for the right channel.
The OUTPUT Of the power amp will connect to the speakers using large, stranded wire cables, sometimes with "banana" plugs that simply plug into the terminals on the power amp and the speaker.
Let me know if this gets your started.

Turntable to reciever connections


check the continuity in your cables. you will need a multimeter or something else to check the cables. the multimeter is about $10 or so. other than that, make sure that your turntable is actually giving output and that the pre amp is both recieving and sending(same with the regular amp. and make sure that the levels are up on everything and the speakers connected properly etc. you probably know this already, but sometimes a good, friendly reminder helps. good luck!!

P-301 onkyo pre-amp


Hi juicer, If you use the switched outlet, then everything will be turned on/off when you operate the preamp power switch. Use the unswitched, then you have to turn off each unit separately. You choose which one you want. It wont matter.

What connection do you intend to use to connect the LBT zx6 to the Onkyo preamp??
