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.

I have Nakamichi CMS-5 and cassette deck DR-5. How i configure it to connect with Harman Kardon BDS 277. In CMS-5 there are 4 Jacks that read Processor, What is the purpose of those jacks. Not a singl


There's not a lot of info on the web about the specs and sockets on a Nak CMS-5 or the RE-5 reveiver that's part of the system. So some of this is based on the tiny fragment of information you provided.

The HK BDS277 has no outputs, only inputs. So however you decide to connect, the only way that things will work is if sound signals come from the Nak and go to the HK so that the sound comes from the HK speakers.

If the Nak has processor sockets as you have half suggested, then they act as a break point between the NAK pre-amp which does source selection and the Nak power amp that provides the muscle to drive the Nak speakers. Disconnecting the links from Processor Out/Processor In with interrupt the signal flow. You'll then be able to connect Nak Processor Out to one of the line inputs on the HK.

Any sources already connected to the Nak will then have their signals routed to the HK. The Nak speakers will be silent.

I hope this helps you.

I have a Sony Amplifier [model TA-AX380] and other components of CD player [model DCP-C40], AM/FM Tuner [model ST-JX380], FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver [model STR-AV570X], and Stereo Cassette Deck [model...

Hi above are links for manuals, these may help..
When one wires up anything it is all usually color to color output to input... usually RED & WHITE stereo audio.
Now we would start with our Tuner this the CD player, & Cassette deck, will wire into the Amp's INPUTs , red - red & white - white, these go into the Stereo INPUTs on the AMP... 1, 2 & 3 and be selected via the input selector on the AMP.
Now after all these in's and out's are wired we need to wire our speakers, this too is simple, locate the outputs on the Amp, and wire accordingly, Plus to Plus and Negative to Negative... each speaker has two wires a Plus, + & a Negative -
All will/should be clearly marked and it will be easy to do. You will need patch leads, one set each for each unit, these will be a pair of cables, usually Red & White with RCA jacks on each end, as related these go color to color from the RCA OUTPUTs Sockets, of the signal suppliers, ie: Tuner, FM stereo & Cassette deck... these ALL will wire into the Main Amplifiers INPUTS, usually at rear of unit, and clearly marked, after this is all done, then as related again now connect the Speakers, again the OUTPUT on the Amp will be clearly marked, as output and + & -, + & - (two sets), one for each channel.
Now each INPUT is selected ON the AMP, and it's output will then be directed to the speakers attached to the Amp..... Just wire and test one at a time, and i am sure you will prevail.
Hope this helps.

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

How do I hook it up to my Surround sound reciever?


Hooking up a subwoofer is dependent upon what hookups are availble on the receiver and subwoofer. Does your receiver have a specific subwoofer output? If so, is it set of speaker-wire terminals, or is it an RCA jack? The Wharfedale can accomodate either one of these as an input. There are four speaker posts on the back of the subwoofer, and there is a single RCA jack input.

Is it possible to connect my Altec ACS48 speaker system to my TV?


If your TV has audio output jacks, then yes, you can connect your speaker system to the TV. Run a stereo RCA cable from those output jacks to the audio input jack on the Altec system, using whatever adapter required. You will probably need to convert from RCA jacks to a 1/8-inch stereo plug for the speaker input. Or you can pick up a cable from Radio Shack that has the RCA plugs on one end and the stereo plug on the other, and omit the adapter.

If the TV doesn't have audio output jacks, there isn't any easy way to hook up the Altec.

Please take a moment to rate this solution if it has helped you. Thanks for asking here!

Subwoofer.......


Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.

NAKAMICHI CD 45Z


If you are using the speaker out wiring (not RCA) then disconnect all speaker wires. connect only one speaker or use a known good test speaker. Try each of the 4 speaker outputs. If none still do not work, then it sounds like a blown output chip which will need to be replaced.

Right speaker doesnt have sound


1ST.-The right jack could be damaged!!
Usually, there is a [+} posaitve & [-] negative input\output to speaker connections. Not all [-]neg. is ground.Sometimes the [+] pos. is grounded. [The exception to the rule is that u SEE the black wire going to ground] the reason I am letting u know this is that u can test the INSIDES of the sound system.
If u can get inside of the unit. Cut the left speaker output [+] posative from both outputs. criss\cross wires.Place left speaker output to right speaker jack[ that does not work!!] & visa versa.If the [LEFT Output] stops working after u plug in the speakers,the internal RIGHT output is damaged. NEEDS TO BE TESTED
If nothing nothing changes.The left still works & the right still does not work, then it is the jack (shorted ?, opened internally ?)

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!
