Question about Onkyo TX-SR500 Receiver

1 Answer

Recording from other sources

I am able to connect a CD player, a turntable, a cassette deck and an 8 track player to my TX-SR500 Onkyo receiver and to play all of them. However I am unable to record music to my CDs from any of these sources. What do I need to do to record using analog system? I was able to record from these sources in the past using a splitter. At that time my sound system was coordinated with my television. Currently, my sound system is independent of my TV and is at a different location. Please advise. Thank you! William Resser

    Your answer is too technical for me. I need to have a more simplified and clearer explanation.

    Thank you.

The tape outputs is what you need to use. If there is not output on those tape outs, you have a preamp problem I'm afraid. I have seen these go out in the past when someone hooks up an output to the tape outputs and blows out the preamp IC. Good Luck

    How much clearer can I be. Have the unit serviced if you do not understand the terms please.

Cassette player and record player in my combination record cassette, record, cd, have stopped working.

Hi, there
Since your unit has a CD player, the problem with both the turntable and cassette deck is probably due to the rubber belts that turn both mechanisms losing elasticity or have broken over time (or in the worst case scenario, turned to goo). I don't know your model manufacturer, but turntables often have a clip, or some sort of apparatus, that you can remove to lift the turntable platter up and off. If you can do that, you will be able to see what shape the turntable belt is in. For the cassette deck, more intricate disassembly is required. Replacement belts for both can often be found on eBay or other online sources.I found a video for an ion turntable that might have a similar belt system.

When connecting AT-LP120 Audio technica turntable to Onkyo stereo receiver TX-8140 I get distorted sound - the turntable came with set cables installed to connect. How do I resolve this problem

hi,

instead of plugging your turntable into "phono in" on the amp just try a regular auxilary input like aux ,video, or cd. sounds like the turntable output isnt like the old ones and may be just a regular output.

Vinyl recording turntable

The Denon will act just like a standard tape recorder. It should have an audio in, for recording. If that socket is connected to the audio out of a tape socket on your receiver, the Denon will pick up the signals that are sent to your receiver from whatever source. All you have to do is follow the instructions for recording on the Denon then. If you have lost the user manual for it, it's free on-line.

your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

How to connect a turntable to Onkyo txsr 500

Just like most contemporary AV Receivers, there is no built-in Phono preamp in this unit so if your TT doesn't have one internally, you'll need to get an aftermarket Phono Preamp somewhere to PREamplify and frequency-balance the minute Phono Cartridge output to a useable Line Level you can send to any available Line Level input on the Receiver (CD, Aux, whatever) .

Trying to connect cable box....

You should be able to pick any open audio device unless it says pre-amp only. If your manual shows a connection for a CD player or similar device it should support the cable box.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa

According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected. Hope this helps. Radiotech
