Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hello, I have an old SX-1600 stereo receiver that has a short in it. Shipped off once already to be fixed. It worked ok for about a year. Now, it's doing the same thing. Don't know where to send it to. What I'd really like is a new one, but one that will run my Kenwood KD-491F turntable. Have asked Pioneer for help twice, with no response. Any suggestions appreciated. KB

Hi,

Most current receivers no longer include a PHONO input. Perhaps what could be done is to purchase a phono to line level pre-amplifier to go along in your purchase for a new receiver.

Will scout around for receivers and post back additional information.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Glad to be of assistance and appreciate the rating.

    Here are some additional information that might be of help to you.

    I was made to understand that the Pioneer SX-1600 is prone to speaker output problems which could either be:
    1. the speaker relay (protection); and/or
    2. the amp, STK4191II Stereo Module.

    Either should be relatively easy to work on and perhaps you can try the services of a locally available qualified electronic technician since the repairs would not be too specialized. The service manual may be of help (or at least a schematic , they may be downloaded from http://www.epanorama.rackhost.net/schema..." target="_blank" rel="nofollow" >here and http://www.epanorama.rackhost.net/schema..." target="_blank" rel="nofollow" >here).

    Cheers.

    Appreciate the additional information you posted here.

    Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be
    less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):

    i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;

    ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;

    iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;

    iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;

    v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.



    Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).



    Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a
    turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line
    level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:

    a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;

    b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;

    c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;

    d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box



    Good luck with your project.

Put to big of a fuse in my pioneer sx-203 and burt out a cucit


Using a higher voltage fuse is not a problem, but if the fuse you used amps are to high, that is a problem. Sounds like a resister burnt. You have a short somewhere in that particular circuit, which is what took out your original fuse. . .your fuse did it's job by blowing and saving the circuit. If you can get your hands on a schematic, you can trace the circuit and find the short.

Can you hook it up to the tv to get sroundsound


You can grab a copy of the manual here:

http://www.pioneernz.co.nz/Site/Pronto/Files/user_manuals/SX255R%20USER%20MANUAL.PDF

The short answer to your question is: No.

This stereo amplifier provides for up to two sets of stereo speakers. System A and System B. There is no Surround capability in this stereo, only straight Left and Right on system A, system B or both.

Using this stereo and speaker system will probably sound better than the speakers inside your TV however. Simply connect the "Audio Left" and "Audio Right" output jacks with RCA patch cables from your TV, Cable Box or Satellite TV box to an unused input on the rear of the SX-255R (CD, LD/DVD, Phono, etc.), then select this same input when you want to listen to TV audio.

I hope this was very helpful - and good luck!

Yes, but it depends on your laptop hardware and software. We'd need to know a lot more about that side.

Pioneer receiver sx-315


With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Hi again,

It would seem that you posted the problem here also. With your kind permission, I will repost my excerpts of my responses that others may benefit on similar concerns.

A. Most current receivers no longer include a PHONO input. Perhaps what could be done is to purchase a phono to line level pre-amplifier to go along in your purchase for a new receiver.

I was made to understand that the Pioneer SX-1600 is prone to speaker output problems which could either be:
1. the speaker relay (protection); and/or
2. the amp, STK4191II Stereo Module.

Either should be relatively easy to work on and perhaps you can try the services of a locally available qualified electronic technician since the repairs would not be too specialized. The service manual may be of help (or at least a schematic , they may be downloaded from here and here).

B. To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

C. Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

Pioneer SX-750 Old School Need Help


It could be a dirty control or switch, working them back and forth could prove that. Other than that, It's likely bad outputs. A unit that old may have transistors for outputs but might be IC's. Transistors can be tested with an ohm meter to see if they're good or not. Also if it has transistor outputs, they may have a small value resistor on the Emitters, check those as well.

Hope that helps...
