Hooking up an EQ on a Yamaha HTR 5860

How do I add an EQ to my home theater system? My old receiver had a tape 2 monitor button that would allow the signal to go through. If any one knows if it is possible to hook up an EQ to this receiver Yamaha HTR 5860 please let me know.

Are you nuts? You dont need EQ to this system.This is such a nice syetem,inbuilt EQ gives very good output.Don't try to connect EQ if you are not an engineer.It can be connected with external source

How to hook up eq to a Yamaha htr 3063

Hi Tyrone, I'm looking at the Yamaha HTR 3063 manual and it does not have the Tape-Monitor function, which would allow you to have the connections for an equalizer
This happens because of the variety of types of audio signals and they can not be processed for the insertion of an equalizer
Eventually, you could equalize a single signal, which you would connect to the EQ input and the EQ output, connect it to any of the RCA L-R audio inputs
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Tyrone, estoy viendo el manual del Yamaha HTR 3063 y no cuenta con la funci?n Tape-Monitor, la que te permitir?a tener las conexiones para un ecualizador
Esto sucede por la variedad de tipos de se?ales de audio y no se pueden procesar para la inserci?n de un ecualizador
Eventualmente, podr?as ecualizar una sola se?al, que la conectar?as en la entrada del EQ y la salida del EQ, la conectar?as alguna de las entradas de audio RCA L-R

Where is pre out im having trouble hooking up amp and eq

You have to use the TAPE 2 (or monitor) on the receiver. It will take two sets of RCA cables. Both the receiver and the EQ will have an input and an output.

  • Run the output/REC (from TAPE 2) to the input on the EQ.
  • Then, run the input from the receiver (TAPE 2 again) to the output on the EQ.
The EQ will have another 2 sets of RCA jacks to hook up a second tape deck (because you used the jacks on the receiver for the EQ). You don't have to hook anything to these if you don't want to, or don't have a second tape deck.

The receiver will have a monitor button, which most of the time is labeled as TAPE 2/MONITOR. Select whatever input you want to use (CD, Tuner, Aux, etc.), then press the MONITOR/TAPE 2 button. When that is on, the EQ will be in the audio chain - you'll be able to use the EQ to adjust the sound. If you turn the MONITOR off it will take the EQ out of the audio chain - the EQ settings won't affect the sound.

Keep in mind, the EQ will also have a button to select the TAPE 2 input. If you have a second tape deck hooked up to the EQ, this is how to use it. Make sure that the tape input is off on the EQ, if you aren't listening to that second tape deck.

Using Bose 901 Equalizer on Yamaha HTR-5840 Reciever

The manual is linked below. Page 19 advises you to use the "MD/CDR" - "IN (PLAY)" and "OUT (REC)" analog audio jacks.

I want to know how to connect an equalier to an 7.1 onkyo surround system

It might not be worth the effort because it would only be useful for analog 2-channel audio. But it IS possible.

Video 1 and Tape have Ins and Outs for the use of any typical analog stereo processor, such as the EQ.

The following is some boilerplate I made up that should explain some usage limitations.


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 Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.



So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer

Trying to hook up my yamaha eq-70 to my new htr-5063

You don't. No tape loop or other place to insert it between the analog sources and the amps for the front channels.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Yamaha-HTR-5063-Receivers-manual/id/23658bh532/t/2/

You'll notice on page 22 they don't show a return (playback path) from the 'audio recorder' or the VCR. That's a clue that there's no tape Rec/Playback loop, which is required for any external audio processor.

You can send analog audio out OR you can accept analog audio in, but you can't do both at the same time. Sorry.

Just the same, IF you had a Tape Loop or could break into a Pre-Out/Amp In slot...

The volume control knob fell off can i buy a new one model htr 5860 yamaha

Sometimes volume controls are held on by an Allen type screw, which can become loose, allowing it to fall off. You should see a hole in the knob if it is. You might need a long thin Allen Key to get it back on.
Otherwise have checked my spares guide (though it's a few years old) and it seems Yamaha might only do their own spares.

I have a Yamaha HTR-5890 receiver and I am trying to hook up a Yamaha EQ-32 10 band graphic equalizer to the receiver. The frequency spectrum analyzer on the equalizer is working but the graphic...

must have the tape monitor to work the regular tape loop does not physically go back into the receivers processor.

only other solution is if the receiver has PRE out and ins use the PRE out to the EQ then back into the PRE in.

if you have the OUT but no in then the solution would be to go out of the EQ and into an external amp.

In my experience "young adults" like using EQ's to boast bass output.

If that's your goal a POWERED subwoofer is what you need.(check out polk audio direct on ebay)

Your unit is a 7.1 surround receiver the reason that it doesn't have the capability for an EQ is that it messes up the surround sound processor.

If the sound is not what you are looking for the issue more than likely is with the speakers. post a messege with what you want to achieve and I'll try to point you in the right direction.

Adding equalizer to system

TIB's are notoriously rigid in their design. An EQ would go in between the source and the amplifer, typically in a Tape Monitor loop if a receiver is powering the speakers. This unit has nothing like that.

The manual implies you can record OUT to a tape deck and play it back (later) through the AUX but that does not mean you can send a signal out and get it back simultaneously as a real tape Monitor would do. Attached in the prescribed configuration, your EQ would be signal-starved as soon as you selected AUX. Dead silence would be the result.

Even if it was a true Monitor circuit, the change imparted would be to the entire program and anything down stream, including the subwoofer, would be affected.

A crossover could be used with a few high-end receivers or complete separate components and bi-amped speakers only.

Many people want to use an EQ with their modern multi-channel Digital Sound Processing gear but at best an analog 2-channel EQ (or any other processor) will only work with analog stereo sources. On most receivers, simply selecting the Tape Monitor disables all digital inputs. However, most DSP can still be employed with stereo source material and a 2-channel processor, with varying degrees of aesthetic pleasantness. Beauty is indeed in the ear of the beholder.
