Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
If the same channel is dead on the EQ as is dead on the amp there may be a correlation.
Let's break this into its two parts.
1) SU-Z550: You don't say WHAT source(s) you tried to use on the CD/AUX, TUner and PHONO inputs. The external device itself could be the source of the low volume. Try swapping the Left and Right cables to see if it follows the source channel or stays with the amplifier channel.
Check the controls on the amp to make sure you understand each one's effect on the sound.
"PHONO" is literal and exclusively FOR A TURNTABLE - NOTHING ELSE - EVER.
2) SH-8055: Equalizers don't 'boost' sound, they modify its levels at various frequencies. To do that they should be connected into a Tape loop on your amp. OUTs go to IN's. Then you select the Tape Loop on the amp and that inserts the EQ into the signal path of whatever source you're listening to. It's actions are BEFORE any other amplifier controls such as volume, tone and balance. The EQ itself also has a Tape Loop to replace the one it occupies. Make sure it is not enabled unless you have a Tape Deck on it to use. Choose "SOURCE". The blue LED display is to show you frequencies are present in the program material.
Set all of its lighted band controls at midpoint prior to declaring it defective. EQ is like any spice - a little is good, a lot ruins the recipe.
