RIAA preamp


Just plug the turntable into your phone inputs. If there is next to no volume then you need a preamp because you have a magnetic (low output) cartridge. If you have a piezo type cartridge the output should be enough to drive the amplifier to rated output. Of your unit does not have a phono input I can tell you that it definitely does not have a preamp built in.

Marantz NR 1403 & Preamp - Volume cannot be controlled by receiver


The newer surround sound recievers will not work no matter what you try with them the way you have it hool up, they are not design to be useing a turn table on them that has a mgnetic cartridge ,Evan if you buy a phono preamp for it, you are just wasteing your time end money, I was a electronic tech for over 40 years ,Before i retired this summer, End no lots of people who tried to do the same thing your trying to do ,End It would not work,

I recently aquired a carver c9 sonic hologram generator without a manual..... from what I have read it can be hooked up between amp and pre amp but there are other ways? advantages?


A tape loop connection would allow you to bypass it completely, otherwise not much difference.

Attach it in any tape loop as you would any other processor or tape deck. Or get a dbx 400 Program Route Selector that supports 3 tape decks and 3 processor loops and allows selection and utilization of any or all before or after the tapes, while using only one tape loop on the receiver or preamp.

I have a C-9, a 400 and some other audio toys to justify having the 400.

The C-9 is interesting.

I have the following equipment and am going crazy trying to figure out how they get connected together. I also have the Carver Multi CD player and Carver Cassette Deck which I was able to connect to the...


Get a separate amp for the 901's and the rest falls into place.

1,2, 5) Place the 901 Active EQ between the pre/main front OUT of the receiver and the TFM-55X. Attach the 901's. Keep track of the jumpers you remove from the receiver. Or replace the jumpers with RCA splitter cables so you still have pre/main connection but can share the output with the TFM.

3) Pinnacle subwoofer (self-powered?) to the subwoofer out of the receiver.

4) Bose (AMS???) 5. As surrounds on the receiver. Place the sub module toward the rear so it mates sonically and directionally with them.

What? No center speaker? I'd get something more robust with bass capabilities, like a pair Bose 301 series 1's because the tweeters face in one direction only.

Except for the amps and the cube stuff that is essentially what I have. 6.1 with full-range speakers everywhere.

Center channel dosen't work on 10 yr old marantz 500$ receiver. Should I just buy a new one?


I'd do some more investigation first. Have you determined if the amplifier for the channel works or if it's a preamp problem using the built-in speaker setup controls?

With this unit's great audio processing features you might be able to bypass a failed amplifier using the pre-outs and drive an external amp for the missing channel.

You could always just get a modest stereo amp (like a Carver M-100T and bridge it), or use the extra channel for another center speaker or a subwoofer, for example.

Some where there is a button to switch between a powered AMP and a Nonpowered AMP. Can you Tell me Where to Do that??


I might need some clarification on your question and what you are needing this receiver to do . But let me take a shot at this. Your amp has a powered output via the speaker terminals and a preamp output via your record output rca jack or any other rca jacks label preamp out or preout. I is no switch to turn your power amp on while leaving your preamp on, but you can switch the speaker a and or b switch off if you like. If you are refering to a powered subwoofer set up you would connect this to your preamp subwoofer out jack then very the level with the subwoffers volume control. You might need more detail in your question if this is not what your looking for.

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers


Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

Bose 901 Active EQ Loop


There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. For one thing, the other speakers around the room are not designed to recieve its Active Equalization and for another, if you engage your Tape Monitor you will not be able to play digital sources. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on my receiver it disables any digital inputs.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers. You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

Run the dbx and BSR in tandem with each through the tape monitor loop on the receiver but be advised you can only use them on analog source stero material. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread the sound around the room.

At my PC workstation across the room I have a stack of analog processors and sources including dbx 3bx-ds, dbx 120x-ds, BSR Spatial Enhancer, BBE 462 Sonic Maximizer, SS-525x EQ, Carver C-9, dbx-224x, JVC cassette deck, Dual 1249 Turntable running through a Garrard MRM-101 Preamp, Pioneer PDR-509 CD Recorder and the Media Center PC stereo analog channels all running through a dbx 400x Program Route Selector (a godsend) which is attached to my ONE TAPE MONITOR on my Pioneer VSX-36TX Receiver. Of course, I have some of my analog processors running in tandem, too, since the 224x only has three processor and three tape loops.

For listening/recording anything 2-channel analog I engage the stack through the Tape Monitor. For everything else I turn the Tape Monitor off. The nice thing about the stack being separate is that I can doodle with recording and use headphones while the TV/DVD/Blu-Ray do something else.

Marantz AC 500U


Hi

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, you have an odd problem happening there, the pre-amp being the common denominator to the syptoms. Perhaps you could try reducing the attenuators to say 60% and retry at the same levels you used to use at the preamp. It is unlikely that there is a fault occurring that would increase the output of the preamp, more likely to be a DC component getting through. It could also be possible that the amps if all the same make and model have through over the period of installation developed the same fault.
There will have to be a common contributor to the symptoms. It is not uncommon for the same problem to affect a particular model at the same point of its life. Best approach and easiest to fault find it would be to change out the preamp with something similer to test the system and see what happens. At least tyouy will know where to start looking. Hope I have been able to help you, still happy to discuss it further. In the Free section our only reward is a FixYa ratings. Cheers

I have a PVX 20 preamp by gemini. the volume knob doesnt seem yo do anything. what is it suppose to gain?


Hi there - did you ever solve the problem? I have one of these and it only seems to have a gain of about 5. As long as you're taking your output from 'Pre Out' 1 or 2, the volume control should adjust from no output to max.
