Is it just with the EQ (or any other single component) in the link? Old equipment develops oxidation on various controls. Depending on physical access, tuner cleaner may help. Or take it to a shop.

Need manual


Ron there is no such manual except those that might come with the Equalizer- Actually , the process is very simple. You take the output of the equalizer in hook to tape in. Tale the record out of the tape loop and hook to input of the equalizer. Then the equalizer will work when the tape look (tape monitor) for the receiver is selected- that is why it is called a tape loop as signal goes out and comes back in. If you have Pre outs and Pre in you could use it there too. In the tape loop connection any tape deck is then hooked to the Equalizer tape inputs- some have two.

Hookin equalizer to tape deck and recever


The equalizer I have seen have Line in, line out, tape in, tape out and that is how you utilize a unit like this. The line IN goes to the receivers tape record out. The line out goes to the receivers Tape play in or monitor, The tape deck hooks to the equalizer. The record or input of the tape deck hooks to the EQ record out, the Tape decks output hooks to the EQ's Tape in connectors. All these are stereo so there are left and right sides which you need to keep consistent. Red on a cable means Right, the white or black on cables mean Left or the top RCA connector on most equipment.
When playing back a tape the tape monitor is turned on with the receiver and left on. The way you record on tape from any source of the receiver is to select that source and it should go to the equalizer. Then the deck should record that source. To play a tape of the deck hooked to the equalizer then just press the tape monitor button on the EQ otherwise the Equalizer will just act as a loop and equalize any signal source that is coming from the receiver and the tape monitor on the receiver should stay on most of the time. Some equalizers have two tape inputs so you would hook another deck to that input and the owners manual of the equalizer should say how to select buttons to transfer tape signals from one to the other. If you master the concept of inputs and output of audio equipment then this hookup becomes another easy thing to do.

Need to hook up a Realistic model 31-2000 equalizer to a Yahama receiver.


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 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 need a hook up digram fof an optimus model 31-2025 stereo equalizer


http://support.radioshack.com/support_audio/doc48/48943.htm

Ten-Band Stereo Frequency
Equalizer (310-2025) Connections Faxback Doc. # 48943

Follow these steps to connect the equalizer to your audio system.

CAUTIONS: Use only shielded audio cable with RCA-type connectors (not
supplied). This type of cable is available at your local
RadioShack store.

Before you connect the equalizer, turn off all components in
your audio system and unplug their power cords.

Before you plug in the equalizer's power cord, complete all
connections and be sure the equalizer's POWER button is out.

1. To connect the equalizer to your receiver, connect the receiver's TAPE
OUT jacks to the equalizer's MAIN IN jacks.

Then, connect the equalizer's MAIN OUT jacks to your receiver's TAPE
IN or TAPE MONITOR jacks.

2. You can connect a tape deck to each set of tape jacks (TAPE 1 and TAPE
2) on the back of the equalizer.

To connect each tape deck, connect the equalizer's TAPE OUT jacks to
the tape deck's in jacks. Then, connect the tape deck's out jacks to
the equalizer's TAPE IN jacks.

3. Plug the equalizer's power cord into your receiver's switched power
outlet or any standard AC outlet.

WARNING: The equalizer's power cord has a polarized plug. To prevent
electric shock, do not use an extension cord or other
receptacle unless you can fully and easily insert the plug's
blades.

4. Connect the power cords of all other components.
