Question about Nakamichi RE-10 Receiver

1 Answer

Nakamichi RE 10, Ser # D14104843

I just picked up this unit. How do the speaker output jack inputs operate? Do I just stick the speaker wire in the hole and tighten them down? Or, do I have to install plug/jacks on my bare speaker wires? I don't even know if my fat moster speaker cable will fit in those holes on the back of the receiver! Also, how many watts per channel does this unit put out? I've heard anywhere from 100w to 240w to 320w. My Bose 901s should handle it though, no? Thanks, Phil

The end holes are designed for plug-in speaker jacks, either single-ended or double ended to span the red black simultaneously (the spacing has to be right, though). Tighten the red/black parts first.

Otherwise you need to bare a little wire (not sure you either can or want to do that with Monster Cables); unscrew the black or red connectors sufficiently and wrap the bare wire around the base, being careful to avoid stray conductors reaching across to other terminals. If you look closely there might be a small hole drilled through the terminals, accessible from below. Ideally you would bare the wires, tin the ends with solder, stick them through those holes and tighten the plastic knobs.14-ga lamp cord would work fine, too, and it's cheap, cheap, cheap.

The 901's will absorb unlimited amounts of CLEAN audio power.

How to hook up the subwoffer


There are several methods, depending on the the types of 1)inputs on the subwoofer and 2) outputs on the amplifier (aka receiver). You can only use the type that is on BOTH.

Most sub woofers have "line level" inputs (they are the RCA phono style jacks or other style jack) that are marked "In" or "Input" and may have speaker level input & output terminal that accept speaker wires.

Amplifiers or "amp" all have speaker level outputs and many also have jacks that are labeled "Subwoofer" or "LFE" (low frequency effects) Output. If both your sub and amp have the "line level" jacks, then all you need to do is get a cable that is long enough to connect the two together, and then enable the low frequencies to be sent to the sub instead of the normal speakers in the receiver's set up menu. Done!

If you have only a speaker level connections common to both the sub and amp, you'll most likely need to disconnect the Main front L and R speakers from the amp and connect to the sub's Speaker Output terminals - and connect a couple of new speaker cables between the sub's Speaker Input terminals and the amp's Main front L and R terminals.

If you don't understand completely, provide the make and model of the amp and the sub, and I'll be able to clear up anything that isn't clear.

How do you connect a Nakamichi surround sound system to my Phillips tv model 42PF7220A/37


I'm confused. The message header shows a problem with a Yamaha RX-V995 receiver.

As for connecting a Nakamichi (or any surround system) to a TV - the only connection would be the Monitor output (video connection) to an appropriate video input of your TV.

If it is a Nakamichi, it is a little older and probly predates the invention of HDMI cables. My guess is you will either use the S video output or Composite video output to the TV's input with similar connections.

This allows you to route whatever video sources you have connected to the Nakamichi to the TV.

Conncet a sony sub to a denon reciver


Depending on the model, there are two ways to connect a subwoofer to an amplifier, receiver or processor. The best way is to connect the subwoofer to the SUB OUT or LFE output of a receiver, but some subwoofers can be connected to the speaker level outputs of the receiver or amplifier.


1. How to Connect a Subwoofer to the Subwoofer Output


The preferred method of connecting a subwoofer is through the LFE or Subwoofer output (SUB OUT) of a receiver. Almost all home theater receivers (or processors) and some stereo receivers have a subwoofer output. The LFE (Low Frequency Effects) is a special output for subwoofers and is often labeled 'SUBWOOFER' not LFE. 5.1 channel programs on DVD discs have a dedicated .1 channel output with bass-only content that is best reproduced by a subwoofer. Connect the output of the LFE or Subwoofer jack to the Line In jacks of the subwoofer using a single RCA cable (the two jacks on the left in the photo). A 'Y-Cable' may be necessary to connect the LFE output to both the left and right channels of the subwoofer.

2. How to Connect a Subwoofer to Speaker Level Outputs
Some receivers and amplifiers do not have an LFE or Subwoofer output. In this case you can use the speaker outputs of the receiver to connect the subwoofer. Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs of the receiver to the left and right channel speaker level inputs on the subwoofer (the speaker inputs on the right side of the photo). Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs on the back of the subwoofer to the left and right channel front speakers.

Hope it helped..

I have bought an used Nakamichi AV1. The unit powers up and the display is fine. The problem is that there is no sound output from any source (Tuner, CD, Phono or tapes) to the speakers. I get speaker...


From the initial posting of this question. (Please only update one.)

There is a switching IC inside this unit that may be the problem, but without seeing the actual unit and signal tracing, this will be near impossible to diagnose. If you have an oscilloscope, place an input signal on one of the inputs and trace the signal to the IC. It will be a TA9263 or something similar. You should see the signal on 2,4 or 6 pins. If you see the signal only on 2, then the IC is likely to be defective.

That would be my first attempt. Also check the power supply to that IC.

Keep us posted on progress.

Thanks,
Dan

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers


Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

I have a aiwa cx-na77, how do I connect it to a tv so that I hear the tv sound on the aiwa speakers


If it has an "AUX" input or any other type of RCA jacks for an input, you can connect the TV RCA audio jacks output to the input RCA jacks of the Aiwa.

That's what you would need.

RCA audio outputs on the TV

RCA audio input on the Aiwa

Just look at the back of each unit and see if it has them. RCA audio jacks are the small circular red and white jacks. They will be labed on each unit what they are for. You need output jacks on the TV and input jacks (but not for phono) on the Aiwa.

Nakamichi AV-10 very little sound on the center speaker


could be the speaker, try connecting another speaker and cable and see if it improves. If the problem is still there and you've checked all the settings insuring that its not turned down, then could be an internal problem with the receiver.
Hope this helps a little at least.

No output on main speakers


I have experienced a similar problem with my Sony STR-GX57ES and took it to a certified tech only to find it needed the power supply replaced. I opted to hunt down a compatible power supply but have been unsucessful thus far. That being said I picked up an STR-D665 for next to nothing and found the power supplies to be quite different (you would hope so any, with the ES meaning Elivated Standard and all) but with the D665 working flawlessly I'd rather have something working than nothing. Good luck!
