How do I connect my 901 equalizer /speakers to the yamaha rx-v633 receiver?

Sorry, it doesnt look like you can hook up an external EQ while still using the amplifier section of the yamaha. Instead, You would have to use the preamp out to go to 901 EQ, out of the EQ into another stereo amplifier, then to the 901 speakers. Personally, to power the 901's properly, I'd use another external amplifier. You will barley get 75watts per channel out of the receiver to power the 901's

How do i connect an equalizer to a Yamaha rx-v995 reciever?

Connect the EQ to the Tape IN and OUT jacks and switch the Rec OUT/Zone 2 to Tape/MD. That is my best guess without having the owners manual....

Would I be able to connect Yamaha eq 70 equalizer to Yamaha av receiver RX-V1800 Thanks.

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.

The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.

In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).

Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.

The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.

EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose some form of STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.

In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? The rest would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

I recently bought the yamaha rx-v567 and I own a yamaha EQ-70. How do I configure and hook up the EQ to the receiver?

The EQ is connected via one of the Tape loops on the amp (rec out from EQ to play in on amp,rec out on amp to play in on EQ). You then switch "Tape Monitor" on to hear the sound with the EQ settings applied. You can also connect it across Pre out and Main in should you have such sockets. I'm pretty sure it will only affect the main two front channels and not the surround channels.

It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

I need to connect an equalizer (EQ-70) to a Yamaha RX-461 AV receiver which plays a Bose Acoustimass 6 Home theatre system. The Receiver does not have a tape deck. So ow do I go about it?

If your receiver has a TAPE IN you can connect the EQ to that, and it will work just fine. Or if you have main LINE OUT / LINE IN, you can create your loop there.
