Question about Sony SEQ-711 Home Equalizer

Open Question

Sony SEQ-711 Graphic Equalizer / I'm able to adjust all frequencies to max level except the highest ( 63 Hz ). I get about half to just over half way up on the scale. Is this normal for that unit or is there a problem? Googling this unit shows an image with all frequencies at max and the 63 Hz. at 50%.

SOURCE: sony seq 711 hook-up?

For all intents and purposes, you can't. The STRDA3200ES has no tape monitor and it has no main out/pre in loop. Sony quit selling the SEQ711 and all EQs qfter they quit making receivers with tape monitors.

The 3200 has a tape out and in section, but it is not a tape monitor. Tape Monitoes allow us to select a source (CD, DVD, Phono, etc.) and send it to the tape deck, then listen to the tape deck. The tape switch on the 3200 et. al. takes the sound away from the source (CD, DVD, Phono, etc.) when we select Tape, so there is nothing there to equalize.

A possible solution exists, you can come out of the front pre outputs and go to the EQ in, then take the EQ outs and go to an outboard power amp. A possible drawback is that most seperate power amps do not have the fullness or detail of the 3200. You would have to rewire the speakers every time you wanted to listen to surround sound.

A second problem is that the SEQ711 does not have the same lack of distortion (phase, TIM, and THD) that the 3200 has. The EQ in the 3200, once you get used to it, may prove to be superior sound.

That's my 2 cents.

You can use the VCR audio connections for a stereo analog processor

Many people want to use an EQ with their modern multi-channel Digital Sound Processing gear but at best an analog 2-channel EQ (or any other processor) will only work with analog stereo sources. On most receivers, simply selecting the Tape Monitor disables all digital inputs. However, most DSP can still be employed with analog source material and a 2-channel processor with varying degrees of aesthetic pleasantness. Beauty is indeed in the ear of the beholder.


If that works for you, go for it. I do it, but I fully understand the limitations.

Those are the center points of its varous controls. Each one has an effect that spreads out from there. No worries.

It would help to know what equalizer you have, but I will assume it is a stereo analog unit. With the exception of the Tape In/Out connections on the back of the receiver there is really no provision for an equalizer. Even the Tape I/O connections are of little use if you can't monitor the source through the Tape In connections. Even if that were to work, it will not function for any digital sources you may have. You should be able to install this between an analog external source and the input to the receiver if you have one particular device you would like to tweak.
There are equalizer settings you can control within the receiver itself. You have the option of selecting the manual method for equalizer settings for each speaker or the default automatic method. Granted there are only 5 frequencies (3 for the sub) that you can adjust, but the fact that you can adjust each speaker separately is an advantage. The following was taken from the owner's manual:
• The front, center, surround, and surround back speakers
can be adjusted at 80 Hz, 250 Hz, 800 Hz,
2500 Hz, and 8000 Hz. The subwoofer can be adjusted
at 40 Hz, 80 Hz, and 160 Hz.
• While the Direct or Pure Audio listening mode is
selected, the equalizer settings have no effect.
• This procedure can also be performed on the AV
receiver by using its [SETUP], [ENTER], and arrow
buttons.

This is a very good receiver with some great features. If you have performed the Automatic Speaker Setup, you can go to the equalizer setting and select Off, Audyssey (automatic) or Manual.

Hope this helps.

What is the purpose of a graphic equalizer?


A graphic equalizer is designed to allow the user to tailor the music to his or her personal hearing. Obviously not everyone hears frequencies the same. As you get older or are exposed to loud noises you lose sensitivity to certain frequencies. To compensate for that you can boost or cut the fequencies being played through your system. Originally the graphic equalizer was designed to make corrections to bad recordings and deficiencies in the recording medium of the time. Now they are used more to compensate for hearing deficiencies. To understand how an equalizer works you need to understand that ideally the normal person can hear about 20 khz of audio when they are young and have perfect hearing. Probably more realistically they can hear 20 hz to 15 khz. Enter the equalizer. All sounds are heard differently according to the intensity of the frequency. If your hearing is bad, say down 10db at 10khz, with an equalizer you could boost 10khz by 10db and make up for it. An equalizer contains filters which breaks the audio spectrum into bands. Could be 3, 6, 10, 15, 20 or more. The more bands the more the equalizer costs but the more corrective power you have. We have equalizers with 64 bands. . The numbers on the sliders are the frequencies your equalizer can boost or cut. Keep in mind that they are the center frequency and will effect frequencies on either side for about a 10db range. So you can cut/boost frequencies at 50hz (very low), 200hz (low but still bass), 800hz (low to mid range), 3.2khz (range of speech), and 12.8khz (high frequency). The best way to observe how your equalizer works would be to play something and adjust one control at a time to see what it does. You will notice a difference. Then it basically becomes a project to adjust the unit to the way that you like to hear your music. You like bass, boost the low frequencies. Like the highs, boost them. Give it a try.

Equalizer setting help


try to use the preset equalizer settings after which you can come back to the parametric equalizer and adjust to your own taste. no problem if you don't connect the subwoofer just make sure you set the hi-pass filter to off so that you will hear the full range to your speakers. but, I advice you to put a subwoofer. There is more dynamics to the lower freqs too. don't adjust the source level if there is no problem. take note the EQ of your head unit is a parametric equalizer. hope this helps while you read about parametric EQs.
