Usually you hook your equalizer between the pre out and main in RCA jacks and then open the connection between the pre and main with a switch. If your unit doesn't have pre out/ main in jacks then I have seen it done by putting your equalizer between the tape in and tape out jacks and then select that tape function on your front panel. The tape out goes to eq. in and the eq. out goes to tape in. Good luck.

CAN I CONNECT MY DB830 TO MY LAPTOP? I HAVE THE RECIEVER AND ALL THE SPEAKERS OF IT BUT I DONT KNOW IF I CAN CONNECT IT TO MY LAPTOP


You can use a cable with a 1/8-inch mini stereo plug on one end and two RCA plugs on the other. Radio Shack sells one so you can see what it looks like. Plug the mini-stereo end in to the laptop's headphone jack and plug the RCA end into an open input on the Sony receiver and you'll be good to go. You'll just need to juggle the two volume settings (laptop volume and receiver) to get the best sound.

The digital sound is off after 1 houre str de sony str de 485


It sounds like the receiver is either failing or going into a thermal protection mode.

There should be NO reason why the input source (digital versus analog) should make a difference unless you play the digital sources obscenely louder than the analog ones.

If you suspect heat, you should be able to feel it.

Can you verify that the digital sources ONLY do this?

Connecting a Sony Subwoofer SA-W2500 to a STR DE 598


It is based on your sub-woofer type..whether powered or passive sub woofer..
Assume that you have powered one..RCA sub woofer jack is the best to feed it ..you should use RCA sub woofer output on your receiver as well..good luck
