Question about Onkyo Audio & Video Receivers

5 Answers

I have an old Onkyo A-803 Amplifier and wish to move it from the United States to Germany. If I plug it in with a transformer to bring the voltage down to 110 will it work? or will the difference between the 50 Hz in Germany and the 60 Hz at which the power supply is rated be a problem?

    I would feel more comfortable if someone could comment on the power supply for the AMP. Does the Amplifier run on DC, in which case the only question is the AC/DC converter which often run just as well at 50 Hz. If not what is the main issue with the 50 Hz?

    See previous comment, i.e., to be confident in the answer I would like to better understand the issue.

You just only buy an AVR automatic voltage regulator for convinience purposes it safe .. if you use 50 Hz to 60 Hz its produce a ripple in the circuit like a vibration its very annoying to ear.

The Amplifier will really work on any place in the world for as long you have a good Auto Voltage Regulator evything will work with the hertz there no problem with it,, Its just as simple as buying a electronic device from a different country that has a different voltage for the device but you can still use it by using a Transformer or a AVR...

Hope that helps.......

Yes it should work just fine, the transformer should compensate for the hz difrence.

    What? Am I wrong?

  • Ekse Jun 23, 2008

    Sweet rascal is wrong, 50-60hz is normal, and will work.

  • Ekse Jun 23, 2008

    you just need a adapter that supports the voltage and frequency in germany.

  • Ekse Jun 23, 2008

    if your device is rated for 110 and 60, you need a adapter which turns 240 50-60 to 110 and 60

If your unit cannot operate in voltage range 110 to 240 then best leave it where it is. Our voltage is 220 and to buy and cart around a transformer ? I don't think so.

'phones engaged' no sound


Well,
My onkyo receiver was keep displaying "Phones Engaged" and no sound.
All I did was plugged in a phones plug and remove it and for the last 2 weeks there is no problem.
I just happened to have a phone plug (without the actual headphone or wires) and that seems to fix the problem.
Hope it will work you all of you as well.
Good luck.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)

Plugging in with multiple voltage requirements.


no... it will put out 220volts, same as the wll socket voltage. you will need a 220v to 110v stepdown transformer to run the sub.

I was having a simalar problem, what you have to do is go into a options menu that will come up on your tv screen and tell the reciever that you want it to put out and video through your hdmi cable.

Onkyo TX-SR804 power supply


If you imply an AC voltage transformer by saying "power supply", I don't believe it will be difficult to find one. If you stay in Istanbul, I recommend that you go to "Dogubank". You can choose from a wide variety of options at that place. All you have to pay attention is that the AC frequency (Hz) of the transformer you're about to purchase. It must be around 50Hz to operate your amp.
