HOW TO CONNECT A ONKYO TX NR535 TO AN EQUALIZER


First this solution will be fraught with potential problems:
1. There is no simple monitor outputs and inputs on the NR535.
2. The NR535 analog inputs/outputs are unbalanced, where the Behringer EQ is completely balanced (TRS or XLR)
3. Insertion of the EQ is analogous with inserting an effects device in an audio loop which in the case of analog surround will cause de-correlation or the companding sidechain making for non-compliance/performance issues.

OK, now the solution can be as follows:

Since the NR535 has a Zone 2 channel, you can use these L/R RCA outputs to make an effects loop. To do this you will need to make or buy RCA to TRS (1/4" phone Tip Ring Sleeve jacks) that you will connect from the Zone 2 outputs to the CH1 and CH2 inputs of the EQ. You will need another pair of the RCA to TPS to connect the output of the EQ back to one of the RCA analog inputs on the back of the Receiver.

Now once this is done, you will be able to Map Zone 2 input to any of the inputs other than the one you are using for the output of the EQ. Let's say you have mapped Zone 1 to your gaming station. This will patch the audio from your gaming station into the EQ and back into your previously connected analog input. At this point, you can leave Zone 2 and select your analog input which is your EQ output, which is your Gaming station. If you don't have any output, you may need to go back into the Zone 2 setup and adjust the volume level.

When you don't want the EQ in the signal chain, just select the input source other than the input used for the EQ's Zone 2 output.

I am not sure if this will work for all situations as you may have technical conflicts between analog and digital audio on some inputs. In any case, this will work with analog signals and I don't see any other simple solution for your case.

I hope this solution can help.

Classifications of computer


types of Computer According to Operation.

There are three basic types of computer according to their operation:
1. Analog Computers.
2. Digital Computers.
3. Hybrid Computers.
1. Analog Computers:
"Those computers which are used for measuring of physical quantities are calledAnalog Computers". Analog means variable and physical quantity always changes.
"Those computers which measured analog type of data are called Analog Computers"
These computers accept input in analog form and provide an analog output of information. It represents physical quantities like distance, velocity, acceleration and temperature. It measures continues changes in physical quantities. e.g. speedometer of a care, temperature, needle's watch for measuring the time, volt meter for measuring voltage. Now a day analog computers are using for Engineering and Scientific works. In Oil Refinery measures flow and temperature of oil. They are also used in Paper making and Chemical Industry. Out put of the analog computer is generally in the form of readings. These computers are dial in situation where data can be measure directly from measuring instrument without having to convert into numbers or codes. Now a day Analog Computers are proceed to Digital Computers. For example: Analog watch to Digital Watch, Analog Balance to Digital Balance and Analog Thermometer to Digital Thermometer etc.
2. Digital Computers:
"Those Computers which accept digital input and provides information in digital form are called Digital Computers".
"Those Computers which measure in term of digital quantity are called Digital Computers".
These computers works on the base of binary digits i.e. (0 & 1).
The results of the Digital Computers are more accurate, precise and reliable then the result of Analog Computers. Digital Computers are faster then Analog Computers. Analog Computers lack memory while Digital Computers store information.
Accounting machine and Calculator are the common example of Digital Computer.
Now a day Analog Computers are proceed to Digital Computers. For example: Analog watch to Digital Watch, Analog Balance to Digital Balance and Analog Thermometer to Digital Thermometer.
3. Hybrid Computers:
"Those Computers which accept digital inputs and provides outputs in the form of analog and vice versa".
Hybrid Computers have the characteristics of both Analog & Digital Computers. It is the computer which measures both the analog and digital quantities. It combines the both features of analog and digital computer. Hybrid Computer has process with the speed of analog and accuracy of digital computer. They are used for special purpose. These are designed to perform special task. For example ECG machine. Hybrid Computers are also used in Air Defense System. Data Communication and Transmission and in different laboratory for medicines.
Basically computer has two types according to their function.
1. Special Purpose Computers:
2. General Purpose Computers:
1. Special purpose Computers:
"Types of computers which are manufactured for specific task are called Special purpose Computers".
These computers are also known as "Dedicated Computers" because these are designed for special jobs. In other words they are designed to handle specific problems. e.g. they are used in Computer Games, Control of Traffic Lights and in Defense System. A set of instruction permanent program feed to them. As they have to perform only one job so they are very fast.

2. General Purpose Computers:
"Types of Computers which can perform all types of jobs and can run all types of programs are called General Purpose Computers".
Those computers are performing variety of jobs and use for General Purpose. For example with a personal computer a user can perform typing, can play games, can make graphics and can do arithmetic operations. General Purpose Computers are versatile but they are slow in processing and less efficient as compare to Dedicated Computers.
Classifications of Computer Classifications of Computer
Computers are classified into different categories according to their physical size, cost and speed. We can general classified them into 05 categories. (Classifications of Computer)
1. Very Small (Micro Controllers)
2. Small (Micro Computers)
3. Medium (Mini Computers)
4. Large (Mainframe)
5. Very Large (Supper Computer)

Hi,can I record digital transmissions on my sony slv-se820g vcr barry


You can record a digital TV signal on a VHS VCR but only in analog format. The digital signal must be input to the VCR by some component which has a yellow composite video output and a white audio output such as a digital cable TV box or satellite receiver. For over-the-air digital TV, either the TV must output analog video or you need a DTV converter box connected to the VCR. Bottom line, the digital signal must be converted to analog for the VCR since VHS VCRs generally are analog recorders.

I would like to connect my computer to my panasonic sa-ht800v unit and hear the sound thru the surround sound speakers


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for analog audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

The SA-HT800's single LINE Input would accept the Green stereo audio or speaker output from a standard PC, once adapted. Select VCR.



Find your PC's Sound Controls and enable the applicable input. make sure the volumes of both Inputs and Outputs are turned up.

Though not applicable to theGemini, more-advanced sound cards and audio hardware would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

The Gemini's Output (Record Master) would perform similarly if adapted to your PC's audio input, whatever that may turn out to be (usually Mic, maybe Line In).

Find your PC's Sound Controls and enable the applicable input. make sure the volumes of both Inputs and Outputs are turned up.

Lost manual. I need to know how to hook a TDK-3826 dual recorder to a PA System at church to record the services and what CDs to use.


Hi wpless43!
The TDK-3826 supports analog input/output, digital coaxail input/output, and digital optical input/output. To connect a PA system, you'll have to determine what type of connection it uses. If your PA system uses an analog connection, it will have two audio cables, one for the left sound channel and one for the right channel. These are color coded and can be connected to analog connections on the back of recorder. Coaxail and optical connections are both single cable connections, and can be connected to their respective locations on the back of the recorder.

Regardless of the connection used, you'll want to connect one of the outputs of the PA system to the recorder if you want record. If you want to use the recorder to play back audio over the PA, you'll want to connect the output of the recorder to the input of your PA. Most PAs support multiple outputs and inputs, so you should be able to connect the recorder input and output at the same time.

You'll want to use CD-R/RW discs to record, but make sure they are audio discs (See image). joehaydu.jpg
You can find a copy of the manual for the TDK-3826 at http://audio.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/bd4c0d62-6f82-4bfb-bf83-8d832f3fe222.pdf. Hope that helps!

A digital-capable receiver would accept 44.1 kHz for normal CD or DTS sources. Some diddling with the output sampling frequency might allow digital multichannel audio to be decoded by the receiver.

hi,
did u mean connecting the sound bar to ur tv.
u didn't mentioned the model number of ur sound bar.
any how ur tv has only coaxial digital audio out. no analog audio out. the sound bar may have one digital audio input (optical digital input) and 2 analog inputs. if it has coaxial input it may be very easy.find is there, if not u cant link these devices.
if u are using a satellite receiver then u can connect the optical audio out to ur sound bar's optical input or the analog audio output to any one of the analog audio input.
