Generic advice that should help:

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.
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 Mon 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? That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Mon 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: Receiver Tape- or VCR Out to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-In; Receiver Tape- or VCR In from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-Out.
If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.

I need to know how I can hook up my Teac EQA 5 equalizer to my Sansui AUD 9 power amp.. I lost the manual to the E/Q


It is very easy, you don't need a manual for this. The EQ line in and Line out get hooked into the record out and Tape in of one of the tape loops on the Sansui amp. Record outs go to EQ in and the EQ out goes to tape play.

I have a Kenwood VR-507 trying to hook up Teac EQA-120 Home Equalizer


As with any stereo analog device, processor or tape deck - Outs go to Ins. But any typical AVR will only be able to use it for analog stereo sources. Once a Tape Loop is engaged all digital inputs are disabled though you CAN still use DSP effects on the analog sources.

I have a teac receiver AG-790 and would like to hook an equalizer to it. How do i go about it?


Find the manual at:
http://www.teac.com/consumer_electronics/receivers_&_tuners/ag-790a/

and on page 6 they show how a Tape Deck is attached. Attach the EQ exactly like that and if you have a Tape Deck or two attach IT(them) to the EQ as if IT was the receiver.

To engage the EQ at the receiver choose Tape and everything passing through the receiver wil lbe routed OUT to the EQ and back IN via the PLAY connections.
