20 Most Recent Pioneer VSX-455 Receiver Questions & Answers


I got a new tv and dvd player and all the wires were pulled out and now i do not know how to reconnect it...

Basically all analog audio inputs and outputs are complementary of each other, such as audio output mates with audio input or viceversa. Video output mates with video input. You typically should have a composite video connector on your both DVD and TV set. Reconnect them directly. As you can imagine, DVD audio and video outputs should go to audio and video inputs of your TV receiver. Good luck.

My reciever turns on and works fine apart from a mains buzz that comes out of the speakers and headphone output and gets louder when the volume is increased

Check if your system has dolby NR.(noise reduction) system, If yes then turn it on. Secondly minimize treble control.

Hook up a cd player to a receiver

connect a red and white rca male connector cable from the outputs of the cd player, to the inputs marked 'cd' on the back of the reciever.

Pioneer vsx-521-k power goes on then off

Sounds like a short in the amp that will need to be repaired before the unit will stay powered on.

I am trying to hook my pioneer vsx-455 up to my samsung dlp-hd tv and have no idea which pre-outs to use.any help would be greatly appreciated.or do i need to go through the cable box and if so how?

Ok. Where does the TV programming originate? Antenna, TV, or (usually) the Cable Box. I'll tell you sight unseen, no TV ever adds to the audio experience. many of us watch on monitors so that would suggest that a TV can play absolutely no part in the high-end audio experience. It's specialty is video with basic audio capacity thrown in. A Cable Box is for all purposes a digital audio and video source with separate outputs for each. Keeping with my practice I'd run the BEST VIDEO (and minimum audio in case you want to use TV speakers for that source) from each video source to the TV (it has multiple inputs, right?) and the BEST AUDIO (no video) from each source to the receiver. One video connection from the receiver to the TV for set-up/control. This requires some switching on your part to watch different sources but it eliminates troublesome and unnecessary routing and handling of the individual signals.
