If your 2100ES has a selectable INPUT AND OUTPUT and if you're intending to send all signal to the power amp, i.e. not bi-wiring or using the 2100ES to run mid-range or treble then you simply send Left & Right audio (White & Red cable) from a 2100ES output, probably AUX OUT ( it doesn't really matter apart from Phono on some units) straight to the power amp on AUX IN.
We should be just dealing with audio here, so connect the NAD audio output to CD or DVD IN. Select CD or DVD IN on 2100ES input switch and switch output to AUX OUT (whatever you decided goes to the power amp) on the 2100ES. Turn power amp to AUX IN and it will now get an audio signal from the 2100ES for amplification.
Speakers connect to the power amp as a normal amp, so pos and neg etc. The 2100ES now only acts as a signal feed, the power amp does all the work.

So, summary - switch on the NAD, press play - video goes separately and audio goes to the 2100ES. Turn 2100ES to INPUT for NAD. Turn 2100ES to OUTPUT allocated for power amp. Turn INPUT on power amp to allocation for 2100ES.

Turn it up!

    problem with my first...



    It will only amp left and right front, 2100ES should still deal with others in 7.1 range. It might be unbalanced, i.e too much front.

    I'd quite enjoy it, and would want more punch anyway, but other range might be diluted or drowned out.

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.

Correct connections to connect your keyboard to your roland amp, and then the amp to the PA would be:

Two mono 1/4" jack (regular guitar leads) leads to connect the sockets labeld L and R on your P90 into channel 2 L and R on your amp. (channel 2 is better as you cannot overload it like you could on channel one, which has enough gain for microphone)

Then, using either the jack or XLR (XLR would be better if your PA mixer can accept them) sockets on your amp labeled LINE OUT, hook up your roland amp to your PA. Make sure to use the correct line outs on the top panel, NOT the stereo link or Sub outs on the back.

I have seen the higher power cb's fry the fm front end sectioon of the tuner section....did you try to put it on an aux input?....the click you hear is the amp protection relay and it sounds like it is working ok....if it were the output side of the power amp, then the relay wouldn't click after power up...it is probably the front end...this is the entire fm tuning section usually contained inside a metal box near where the antenna comes in

Hi -

Sony CD player Red / White RCA - > CD input RCAs on the Arcam.

From the Arcam Preamp Output RCA's, go to the Bose "Input". From the Bose "Output", you need RCA splitters to make them into four outputs to run your amplifier connections.clmrt5000_2.jpgclmrt5000_3.jpg

http://www.arcam.co.uk/_ugc/file/avr280e_manual.pdf

If you have the whole Z5500 package you could run the Arcam's optical- or coaxial digital audio output to the corresponding input on the Logitech.

But I'd be careful about letting BOTH the Arcam and the Logictech perform Digital Sound Processing on the sound. DSP's aren't meant to be stacked. My money says the Arcam is better in the DSP department than the Logitech.

If you have just the sub, run the Sub PRE out from the Arcam to the Sub/Center input (adapt it to 3.5 mm) on the Control Center and set the switch to "6 ch direct".

Arcam CD73 fault


Hi there. I would check the power supply rails, you have probably lost a volatge about the Audio line output /DA stages. Check voltage reg packs, they fail alot. I have repaired a few of these over the years, hit me back if you need to go further.

Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA


The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!

Tv trouble shooting


whenever any fusible resistance fails means there is a short ckt in tv. failure is mainly due to main filter cap or rectifire diode os switching ckt failure(here as you cleared str.) remember while servicing power supply isolate hor. section for safety purpose.& connect it only after power supply output is ok &after checking parts in hor. ouyput section. if this seems to be ok then go for hor.output ckt failure like hor output,flyback transformer & cap& diodes connected with it.
