DBX-1215 to Home Receiver

I want to connect a DBX-1215 to a Yamaha RX-397. Do I need a set of LM2B/U Device Matching Device to convert from Unbalanced to Balanced ? The DBX-1215 has XLR connectors. Should I get some XLR-RCA cables and use these to connect the Receiver and the Equalizer directly ?

    I'm sort of in the dark here. I've never heard of a PL55 Connector. I looked at the XLR-RCA cable at cablestogo.com and they state that these cable go from an unbalanced Output to a Balanced Input. Can you give me a source for the XLR-PL55 cables ?
    Thanks

You should need a XLR-PL55 connector that has balanced connections.The PL55 is stereo,so that there is a balanced connections.

That might depend more on your other audio equipment. This is not a consumer device so it has no RCA cable connectors.

How do you connect the dbx eq to a home stereo system


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 convert ed to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a 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? They 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.

Okay, back to the hook-up: Receiver Tape- or VCR Out to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-In; Receiver Tape- or VCR In from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-Out.

So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.

[Or you could obtain a dbx Program Route Selector (check eBay, I highly recommend the 400x, of which I have two) and it would, while only using one receiver Tape Loop, allow for three discrete attachment paths for processors and three for tape decks with the added flexibility of front-panel selection of any and all, with the processors being before, after or between the source or tape decks. Plus it has a dedicated facility for an inline dbx Noise Reduction Processor that can also be juggled around via pushbuttons. Pretty neat.]

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.

My 1215 equalizer produces a hum when inserted between the subwoofer output of the receiver and subwoofer amp. I am using the barrier strip inputs and outputs, rca tip to plus, shield to minus. I have...


Wild guess - I had something just like your problem (including consumer dbx components) and it was ONLY with the track lighting turned ON. Replacing the lighting control DID NOT help but the problem up and went away by itself.

Sometimes hum can be defeated by rotating the orientation of a single power plug.

Just wondering: WHY do you feel the need to EQ the sub beyond its own controls? Though I don't have not pro-gear, I'd use a dbx-120 instead and save the EQ for something more in tune (pardon the pun) with its capabilities.

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.
