I can't find an image of the rear panel but I have a low-rez manual for the TX-SV434, which should be pretty close. I can't make out the labeling on the RCA connections.

Let's simplify this. The CD just goes into the CD input.

You can either use the two (if present) Tape or Video In/Out loops for the individual processors, or you can run them in series with each other on one Tape Loop.

I don't imagine you really want to use both Dynaic Range processors together, so each one's Bypass function would take it out of the path if so desired.

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 a late-model Audio/Video Receiver 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 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: 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.
[Or you could obtain a dbx Program Route Selector (check eBay, I highly recommend the 400x, of which I have two) and it would, while only using one receiver Tape Loop, allow for three discrete attachment paths for processors and three for tape decks with the added flexibility of front-panel selection of any and all, with the processors being before, after or between the source or tape decks. Plus it has a dedicated facility for an inline dbx Noise Reduction Processor that can also be juggled around via pushbuttons. Pretty neat.]

Sansui 8900 zdb to connect to pioneer rg2 dynamic processer then to bose 901 active equallizer. what is the proper method to connect these?


Referring to the picture and remembering that ONLY 901's can run off of any particular amplifier.

http://vintageelectronics.betamaxcollectors.com/sansuistereoreceivermodel8900zdb.html

I can't make out the label for tape copying. You want the 901 EQ to be the "TO" when 'copy' is selected. That way it's EQ will not affect your taping to the upstream deck or processor. Or in your case, you want the RG-1 to proceess the audio first, not after the 901 EQ changes it.

http://www.classicaudio.com/forsale/pio/RG1.html

In to Outs. Both the RG-1 and the 901 Active EQ have facilities for attaching other processors or tape deck(s) within their tape loops. In a pinch you could daisy-chain the RG-1 in front of the Bose 901 EQ on a single tape loop to free up the other one.

Go to Bose.com for the manual and specific pictures of the hook-up.

So what do i do if when i turn my onkyo tx-sv454 receiver on it says protect and then shuts off? How do i fix that or get around it? please help me....


I don't think you can fix it, unless you're skilled with electronics. Possibility that something has occurred internally with a circuit board etc so the system shuts down in order to protect itself from catching on fire etc. Get it services. Might not be too bad of an issue, but certainly not a bypass.
