How to play my Droid mp3 music through my DRA-397 receiver

I have a Denon DRA-397 Stereo Receiver. I want to play music from my MP3 player (Droid) through my receiver to the sound system in my house. The Best Buy guy said all I needed was a mp3 audio cable just like plugging into my aux in my car. But it doesn't work at all. Help!

SOURCE: connecting new tv to DRA-685

you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).

Hi, Press the B and the Mode buttons and then hit the power button.  This should unlock the panel....it worked for me.

SOURCE: denon receiver (DRA 397) will not speak to iPod dock

IF YOUR NOT USING A DENON IPOD DOCKING STATION IT WILL NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY.
YOU CAN CONNCET OTHER TYPES OF IPOD DOCKING STATIONS BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE CONTROL THROUGH THE DENON AND ONLY CONNECT THE AUDIO FOR THAT DOCKING STATION TO THE DENON AS ANOTHER SOURCE INPUT

I have an old Denon stereo receiver DRA - 565 RD. Do you know how I can connect my iPhone to the receiver to play music from my iPhone?


You need a 3,5mm male stereo connector to RCA male jacks (see attached image). Plug the 3.5mm jack to your iPhone and the RCA jacks (red & white or red & black) to your Denon Receiver's CD in or Tape 1 or 2 PB (at the rear of the unit). Then select the input where you plugged the RCA to (front of receiver: CD / Tape-2 / Tape-1). Hope this will help. 25303676-z0ul41frrnrex4ege2epffps-1-0.jpg

I have a denon DRA-397 receiver and when I try to bring it out of standby, it attempts to restart then returns to standby after the tuner starts up. The standby button has a flashing red ring rather


When the power indicator is blinking red, there are a few possible issues. 1) The unit has overheated internally due to insufficient air flow around the unit. Let it cool down and then make sure that you have it in a well-ventilated area. (If you keep your home theater devices in a "closet", make sure that you have good air flow so that the heat from all the devices doesn't build up.)

2) The speaker wire cores are touching each other or the back of the unit. The DRA-397 will shut itself off if it detects a short of the speaker wires. Check the connections and make sure that the wires are not touching where they shouldn't.

3) An internal short or fault has been detected. In this case, contact Denon for repair.

I hope this helps.

Is the denon dra-395 compatible with an ipod?


Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:


http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2


and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.

We bought our Denon 395 4 years ago. Is it set up for HDTV and IPhone (IPod) use? Also, how can we get a manal as it was lost in moving. Charles Barrett cbarrett1410@yahoo.com

It is an analog STEREO-only receiver so it is NOT compatible with multichannel or even digital audio. The TV is irrelevant.

How do i hook up an ipod to a denon dra-685?


you can use a 1/8 inch female to stereo RCA adapter and plug the patch cable into one of your inputs like DVD or CD player. The signal to noise ratio on those inputs is pretty good.
