Question about Home Theater Direct MA-1235 Amplifier

1 Answer

Combining an integrated receiver and an external amp.

Hello; If I have a 100 Watt Integrated Receiver with Pre-outs...if I use the pre-outs and connect to another 100 watt external Amplifier does that basically create 200 watts of power driving my speakers or am I forgoing the 100 Watts of my integrated receiver and now just using the 100 watts from the external amp...in essence doing nothing for me. thanks. Nick

    Thanks...

    That is what I would have thought, but I have been reading forums and blogs where people talk about how they are hooking up their Pioneer or Denon integrated receivers with Rotel or NAD amplifiers. Why would someone buy an integrated receiver to hook up to an amplifier if they are not going to use or get any value or benefit from the receivers amps. I mean one guys is talking about hooking up a Rotel Amp to a pionerr receiver that already has 140 Watts per channel....Maybe he's just trying to impress the folks on the blog like he knows what he is talking about;-)! Thanks again.

Yes, you are "forgoing the 100 Watts of my integrated receiver and now just using the 100 watts from the external amp"

How do I hook up a stereo reciver to the technics su-g91

I assume you want to use the SU-G91 as a power amplifier to drive your speakers. If your receiver has connections for inserting an equalizer (may be labeled pre-amp output and power amp input), remove the jumpers between the pre-amp and the power amp, then run cables from the pre-amp to the SU-G91 inputs. You can have an equalizer between the receiver and the integrated amplifier.
If this is not available, use the recording output (for a tape recorder on older receivers). Note that the volume control on the receiver will be bypassed with this connection.

Can i hook up a power amp to my denon avr-3300 with out a pre-amp

Yes. Your receiver has the required pre-out connection terminals needed to go to an external amplifier. That would make your receiver operate as the pre-amp/processor.

I have a Pioneer VSX-520 receiver and was told I need a pre-amp to hook up my record player.I purchased a technics integrated power amplifier from a flea market and was wondering if it is compatible with...

IF the unidentified new Technics Integrated Amp has a PHONO section it will support the turntable.

IF the unidentified new Technics Integrated Amp has, say, a Tape Output, that could feed any Line Level input on the Pioneer. OUT to IN.

How do I record a CD from an album on a turntable?

Assuming you have a functioning turntable either self-pre-amplified or through a component (such as a receiver or integrated amp) with an internal Phono preamplifier just connect the self-preamplified TT directly to the analog inputs on the CD Recorder; or connect the CD Recorder to the receiver / integrated amp as if it is an analog tape deck (which it functionally is in this case).

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

Stereo connection

Hi spanky

Sorry for the delays in getting back to you. Been busy here this week.

OK. to connect the 2275 to the 1152,there are 2 ways of going about this.

You can plug the pre- out of the 2275 to the power amp-in of the 1152. In doing this you are using the power amp section of the 1152 and the preamp functions of the 2275. Your other gear like CD player, tape deck and so on also plug into the 2275.

the other(better) way is to plug the pre-out of the 2275 into the tuner inputs of the 1152, leaving the volume at about 40% on the 2275 and use the 1152 as an integrated amp. This means you are using the 2275 as a tuner only. When you do this, you will need to use an RCA lead to jumper the pre-out/poweramp-in connections on the back of the 1152, and the 2275 ... L to L and R to R respectively.

I am still wondering why you want to use 2 integrated amps (each having a preamp and a poweramp section) The only real benefit the 2275 brings to your system will be tuner functions. You could just get a tuner and run the 1152 to be an ideal rig.

Let me know what your ideal setup you are wishing to build would have. Speakers, other gear like CD, tape deck, etc.
