I have a Yamaha RX-V861 that has worked perfectly for years but now I am having an issue. My LG TV makes a popping noise and turns off. It does this 5 or 6 times and then everything works normally. My


If your unit has HDMI Control turn it off on your Yamaha but if it does not have it and your TV does then turn it off on your TV. You can test that theory by unhooking the HDMI cable and using any of the other forms of video output your Yamaha supports, so if you hook it up using component cables or even composite cables we know the problem is coming from the HDMI and the above steps should fix that.

When I use my headphone jack on my Casio WK 3500, if I turn the volume up past a certain (very low) point, the sound is distorted. Can you tell me what might be the problem and how I might fix it?


There are two devices involved and you've only defined one.

What are you feeding the headphone jack TO?

Maybe it's the headphones (?) themselves that are distorting.

Wild guess... if you're plugging the output into "PHONO" on something it WILL distort above a very low level. "PHONO" is the only input in audio that is literal and exclusive. Turntables ONLY.

Use another input.

Google "RIAA equalization" for further info on that subject.

How to connect microphone to Yamaha RX-V365 as a PA system.


Home-theatre receivers don't have microphone inputs. If you want to use the receiver as an amplifier in PA system, you need to use some kind of mic pre-amp or a mixer with mic inputs.
For PA mixer is needed anyway almost every time and all mixers have at least one mic input (with a pre-amp). Mixers have line-level output(s), which you can connect to the analog input of receiver.
Using receiver as an amp in PA has advantage that you have 5 channel amp. When using high sensitive PA speakers (as oposed to less sensitive Hi-fi home speakers), you can get good performance with the power rating of receiver. You could even use 2 separate channels for subwoofers and 2 channels for satelite speakers - but for that you would need a receiver with 5.1 analog inputs and special device called crossover which would divide the output from mixer into low-frequency signal and high-frequency signal which you would then connect to the front and rear analog inputs. But with RX-V365 you can use only 2 channels with analog input

Connect Airport Express to Yamaha RX- V659


Since you're using a standard mini jack to double RCA cable, it's safe to assume you'll be sending line level signal into your reciever, so i think any of these audio inputs will do: AUX, CD, DVD, MD, TV.

Also try the inputs on the front of the unit (i guess they are meant to be used with a video camera or similar but they are designed for line level signals so it should be ok if you decide to use them).

Anyway, keep the source signal at a moderate
level when you test any of the inputs and raise it to a suitable level after you're sure it is coming thru well.

Normally, the AUX input is suitable for any AUXilliary signal source that puts out a line level signal, but if it is already being used, you may use other free inputs.

If you use TAPE or PHONO inputs, you should keep the signal level from the source a bit lower since these inputs will amplify the signal a bit more (especially the phono input which works with signals that are lower in level than the line signal).

I hope this helps.

Denon 2802 amp


Dear Armani,

You cannot put de leads from an MP3 player or your TV into the pre-amplified connection of your Denon,
the phono "stage" is a low input stage, your input from MP3, TV, CD, DVD oscasetteplayer is high output (a 5 to 10 times stronger signal)
Try every other stage like tape 1 or 2, this will work just fine,

Need a hookup diagram for yamaha rx-v461 plus yamaha yst-sw216 please


Hi,
Here you can find the manual for your subwoofer. Looking at its back side, it has 2 RCA plug input for stereo. Receiver has just mono sub output, but as low frequencies are not easily locatable, mono is perfectly OK.
Just connect receiver SUB-OUTPUT with RCA cable to your subwoofer's RCA LEFT input. Then adjust volume to match rest of your speakers.
