Question about Yamaha AX-596 Amplifier

1 Answer

Yamaha AX-596 Integrated Amplifier only works when using either of the two "Pure Direct" buttons. The Bass, Treble, & Balance controls do not function. It would appear that circuit board or the circuit upstream from it is faulty? Nothing appears to be burned or damaged upon close inspection of the circuitry?

Chances are that the tone control pre-amp circuit is faulty. These days the functions are all done by a single IC. Find that and you will more than likely have found the culprit. If there are any of the controls for bass etc on the front pannel, trace the wiring back from them. If not have a look around on the PC board in area that you suspect (some boards are marked as 'tone' etc). If you see any IC's put the number into google and you might find out what each does. Keep doing it till you find one that deals with tone etc.

Can i use a graphic equalizer with a yamaha as-500


My Yamaha Equalizer is Model GE-30. Review the manual for this unit and on page 3 you will see the connection procedure "Line Out" on the equalizer to "tape deck in" on the amplifier. In the case of the A-S500 user manuaI on page 5, I used the "line 3 " also identified as "tape deck" to connect the equalizer.
The front control(s) from page 2 on the A-S500 manual are then set :
Control(5) input selector set to Line 3 (Graphic Equalizer)
Control(8) REC OUT selector to CD (for CD), line1 (my blu-ray player, or tuner (my DVR/tv)
The only thing I lose is "PURE DIRECT" does not fuction if the equalizer is on, otherwise;
I simply set Control(5) input selector swith to the desired input source, the equalizer no longer
functions and "PURE DIRECT" can now be used.
The rest of the tonal controls for bass, treble, balance, and loudness work as they should.

What are the frequencies that the bass and treble controls on a Yamaha AX-396 amplifier control? I recorded alot of music direct from the amp to my pc with the bass and treble controls at max and need to...


The bass and treble controls (as well as volume) have no effect on the recorded output if you're using the traditional jacks a tape deck would use. Only PRE-OUTS get massaged by sound controls.

Even if you DID affect the recorded signals, WHY are you using such exaggerated settings? Or was it by mistake?

In theory, passing the modified output back through the same controls (set to Minimum this time) would undo most of the unwanted effect. Assuming their precise and mirror image for gain and loss.

Hi...
The tone control circuit has "issues". Could be a bad interconnect or a failed pre-amp chip.
If you dont mind putting about $100 into it, get it looked at

Bass and treble controls


You should check the Direct button is pressed or not.
In Direct mode, it by passes the treble and bass circuitry so you will not hear any difference even if you turn it.

Hello i was wanting to know if i could hook up my AX-596 amplifier to my Yamaha HTR-5860 reciver


I assume you want to slave it to the receiver and drive some more speakers with it.

Connect some RCA cables from whichever channel pre-outs you want on the HTR-5860 to any input on the AX-596.

Set the AX volume to something sufficiently high, run through the HTR's speaker level setup and match the AX volume to match the channels on the receiver. Then leave the AX's volume alone.
---

If you just want the AX to have access to program sources of the HTR, run the RCA cables to it from one of the VCR1 or 2 Out (but DO NOT select whichever one you use via the front panel). These are not affected by the HTR's volume controls.

I want to connect YST-Sw1500 sub woofer to the AX-596 amplifier .How can I do the connections .


on ur subwoofer u will see HPF output, connect this output to MAIN IN of ur power amp (first remove jumper between pre-out and main in from ur power amp) connect pre-out of ur power amp to input 2 L&R (Left is also for mono input). the HFP selector switch will cut off 80Hz or 100Hz to the main input depending on the position enabling u to have high frequency sound on your main speakers. connect the speakers to the main output terminal of ur power amp. do not connect speakers on the woofer ouput.
make sure u are using the right impedance speakers. do not switch speaker impedance selector while the unit is on.

Can i use small satelite speakers with my big front speakers?


Hi, I asume your setting up a home theater with five speakers a center left and right and rear surrounds don't know if you have a subwoofer. The large speakers in the front will work fine if you set the amp to large front speakers the bass will be sent to these. If you have a subwoofer set, the amp to small front speakers and the bass will be directed to it. Also try to get a center channel speaker that sounds somewhat like your large speakers.
