Question about Technics SA-DX1040 Receiver

1 Answer

Sa-dx1040 dvd optical input works, tv and cd do not.

L connected a roku netflix player optical output to the cd optical input on the dx1040 and got no sound. I had the hdmi output directly connected to the tv set and thought that maybe that shut down the Roku's optical output. I talked to a Roku technician and he had me unplug the hdmi from the Roku to see if that worked. It had no effect. When I plugged the optical output from the Roku into the dvd input on the 1040 it worked great whether the hdmi was plugged in or not. Yes, I did change the input selection on the 1040. I also tried plugging into the 1040's tv optical input and that did not work either. Since I am using the dvd input for my dvd, I would really like to use one of the other 1040 optical inputs. Please help.

Have Technics SA-EX500 connected to Samsung Smart TV. For tv channels the sound is perfect but when I switch to Netflix or HBOGO the sound is static/cackling.


Suggest connecting via the headphones jack or if available the RCA audio output jacks. If you connect via the headphone jack you will need to adjust the TV volume to a lower setting to avoid distortion/./ The The problem is that the optical output connection is a digital connection and depending on the digital format the Digital to Analog converter may not be a configuration that the audio stream to the stereo required for the tv/vcr in.

How does the audio sound using the Samsung Smart TV internal speakers>

Also under menus/audio/settings you may need to change the Optical output to stereo.

Netflix also has settings that will change the audio stream.

Hope This helps?

Sound issue through Home theatre when pulling up applications


Smart TV's make up the audio output for your smart tv apps. You will need to use the Optical output of the TV and plug it into an available Optical input to the home theater receiver. Make note of the name of the input on the home theater receiver (i.e. CD/DVD, TV, DVD, etc) because that is the input you'll have to select on the receiver to hear the App audio. Hope that helps

Adding another device to the system


Well, if analog works for you connect the CD player's analog RCA cables to the VCR inputs.

Can you imagine why you NEED to have the TV audio coming into the receiver from the TV? Are the TV's audio system or speakers superior to the audio section of every other source of TV-related programming? We hope not. Does the TV receive any programming that the receiver can not? Maybe games. I imagaine this MIGHT justify running analog TV audio back to the receiver.

Your cable box and your DVD player have both digital and analog audio outputs. The gray area is what your TV has for audio inputs. It could survive with simple RCA analog audio in from both and none to or from the receiver. Then you could watch Lo-Fi cable and DVD's without the receiver turned on.

That would free up the TV analog audio input for other things.

I imagine your DVD player is using one of the digital inputs on the receiver. If you have one each optical and coaxial audio output among your DVD and Cable Box you could place them in the two available diigital inputs.

Now, what about the CD's digital output? For stereo music you're not likely to be able to hear any difference between it and the analog input BUT it can still be connected digitally IF it has a coaxial output. Coaxial digital inputs can be shared.

Get an RCA-splitter and join the two units entering the coaxial audio input just before they enter that connection. Either will work just fine if you TURN THE OTHER ONE OFF when you want to us it.

My marantz DV 9500 doesnt output digital signal for audio cd anymore but outputs audio for dvd,sacd,dvd audio. Does it need servicing


Make sure your playing componet like CD player have a digital output socket. Connect this to a digital port on the amp witk a single RCA or Optical cable if output available on CD. Make sure the digital assingment in amp is set for cd function and corresponding input(example cd plyer connected on dig 4 input on amp, press menu, setup, assignment, go to cd player, make sure setting on dig 4 or change input to dig 4, go to next component to memorise setting.and exit, see manual to assist you) if still no sound take dvd cable for instance that is working and put that in dig 4 port. if that works check in cd player that settings spdif/raw/pcm is correct one for yor digital output if still no sound soun pc board faulty.

How to connect Netflix Roku player with pc and tv


Yes, it connects directly to your TV with a choice of cables - check their site for a description of your options there.  And if you have a wireless network (router) it will connect to the internet through that, so you don't need to have a cable running back to where your computer is.

Technics surround sound system


Use whatever TV sound output conforms to your receiver's input. If an optical or coaxial digital sound output is available, that is the way to get 5.1 surround sound through the SA-DX1050. But you have to assign the correct input (COAX, OPT1 or OPT2) to the selector (TV, DVD, CD). See pp 12-13 of the operationg instructions for D-Input instructions. If you don't have the manual you can download it at Panasonic.com.
