Yamaha Natural Sound Amp and Tape Player

I want to play my Yamaha NS K-15 tape player directly into the A-05 integrated amp but when tape monitor is selected on the front of the amp I get nothing. When I had it set up with the graphic equaliser, pressing tape monitor on the amp and on the equaliser gave me play back from the tape player.
If I plug the tape player into the phono input of the amp and select 'phono' all I get is a loud hum through the speakers.
How do I set it up to play directly from the tape player without having the equaliser included?

All of this applies to nearly any analog consumer audio gear...

If you have any Tape Deck and an Equalizer and only the one Tape Monitor loop you should place the EQ into that Tape Monitor loop, then place the Tape Deck onto one of the probable two Tape Monitors on the EQ as it sounds like you had here...

"When I had it set up with the graphic equaliser,pressing tape monitor on the amp and on the equaliser gave me play backfrom the tape player."
That setup will allow you to apply EQ to any analog source and the tape deck in record or playback mode.

However, if you want to remove the EQ and use the Tape Deck directly on the Tape Monitor just attach the deck's Playback cables to Tape Mon In (Play) and the deck's Record cables to the Tape Mon Out (Rec). Flip the Tape Mon control to hear the tape deck or monitor it while recording.

NEVER plug anything but a turntable into the Phono. It has a preamp that expects a ver ysmall signal from the cartridge AND it also has a severe RIAA Equalization curve which would result in grossly exaggerated frequency extremes if you managedto get a non-LP source into it. Likewise, turntables without internal electronics mut always use the Phono section of a receiver, preamp or integrated amp to get the boost and EQ they need.

Kenwood KX-79 CW dual cassette hook up?


Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.


The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.

Trying to hook up my yamaha eq-70 to my new htr-5063


You don't. No tape loop or other place to insert it between the analog sources and the amps for the front channels.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Yamaha-HTR-5063-Receivers-manual/id/23658bh532/t/2/

You'll notice on page 22 they don't show a return (playback path) from the 'audio recorder' or the VCR. That's a clue that there's no tape Rec/Playback loop, which is required for any external audio processor.

You can send analog audio out OR you can accept analog audio in, but you can't do both at the same time. Sorry.

Just the same, IF you had a Tape Loop or could break into a Pre-Out/Amp In slot...

The following is some boilerplate I made up that should explain some usage limitations.


Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on most late-model Audio/Video Receivers (*) will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.


* But not the HTR-5063.


The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.


In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).


Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.


The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.


EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.


In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? They would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

Okay, back to the hook-up IF you had a Tape Loop:


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Rec-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Play-Out.


So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer

I recently bought the yamaha rx-v567 and I own a yamaha EQ-70. How do I configure and hook up the EQ to the receiver?


The EQ is connected via one of the Tape loops on the amp (rec out from EQ to play in on amp,rec out on amp to play in on EQ). You then switch "Tape Monitor" on to hear the sound with the EQ settings applied. You can also connect it across Pre out and Main in should you have such sockets. I'm pretty sure it will only affect the main two front channels and not the surround channels.

Can you help me connect my Yamaha hi-fi system? I want to connect my Yamaha ampliier DSP A1 to my Yamaha equalizer 630 but I don't how to.


Your EQ will be connected to the amp via one of the Tape loops. Connect rec out from the EQ to play in on the A1 Tape input,and rec out from the A1 to play in on the EQ. Then select Tape Monitor on the A1 to hear sound with the EQ settings applied. It won't affect the surround channels,only the main ones. You can also connect the EQ across the pre out and main in sockets for the front channel on the A1

I have a Amp,CD player,Tuner,and DVD player. no a tape deck.how can i conect all, with out a tape deck through eqeualizer.


You can connect the EQ on the tape in/output of your amplifier. Tape out (or monitor out) to the input of the EQ and tape in to the output of the EQ.
Listen to the tuner and than switch to the tape input, the tuner input will be still active. But in the tape "mode" your EQ will be active too.

Dear Sushant,    I do not think your use of an equalizer has caused any problems.  I will explain the proper use of the source/direct button.  This button's function is to monitor the output of a recorder connected to the record outputs of your amp.  When this button is pressed on the sound going to the speakers comes direct from the "source" (cd, radio tuner, phonograph etc.) when in the off position you can monitor the recording of whatever source is being recorded via the tape deck.  This switch must be off to record through the amps record outputs.    To test this, put a blank tape in the tape deck, choose the source as phono and place the dec in record/pause.  With the source direct button pressed on you should hear a change in volume when moving the amp's volume knob only.  When source direct is off you will be able to hear the output of the tape deck, so adjusting the tape deck's record level will also affect the volume coming out of the speakers.  more record level in/ more level out.!    Below is copied from page 9 of your user operation manual for Marantz's explanation of the source/direct button.  image.tiff
best of wishes, Michael Mittelsdorf

Pre amps


IF your amp has a phono input, you need nothing special. If all you have is aux inputs or an extra tape input, you need a phono pre-amp that will increase the signal level to that of a cd player or tape player. These are simple pre-amps that cost around $20.

How to connect eq to audio amp


To EQ all audio sources you'll need to have a receiver/amp with either a tape monitor loop or a pre amp-in/main-out loop. Look for a button on the front labelled 'Tape Mon' or ins and outs on the back labelled pre amp-out/main-in. If you have these you can connect the outs from the amp to the ins on your EQ and then EQ outs go back into the amps ins. If you have a tape deck as well, the EQ's 'tape mon' jacks replace the ones it takes up on the amp, so just plug your tape deck in here.

Just remember that whether you have a tape deck or not, if you hang an EQ off the 'tape mon' loop you'll have to engage the 'tape mon' button/switch for playback with EQ.

If your amp doesn't have these loops you can still use EQ but you may be restriced to one audio component source. So say you wanted to EQ the playback from your CD player, you'd just connect the CD players output into the EQs input, then connect the EQ's output into the amplifiers input (for CD player). Then everything you play through the CD player will be EQ'd.
