I have an audiosource eq-200 and am looking to connect it to my denon avr-2807. i ultimately would like to fine tune anything listened to through the receiver...or is this not the best way. i listen to music, watch dvd's, watch t.v., & still use my vcr. how do i hook this all up to work through the equalizer?

Re: hooking it up!
If the amp has PreIn PreOut connections, then thats the best way to go. Home theatre amps however, have 5 InOuts, and this makes it hard. You can use the tape loop. Hook up the rec out on amp to inputs on EQ, and output of EQ to tape in an amp, then engage the tape monitor function whilst ensuring that the rec selector has the source you wish to use the EQ for.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the Tape Monitor with any type of stereo-only sound processor (non-Bose EQ, dbx expander, etc) and the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I have a whole stack of analog processors, tape and CD recorders slaved to my single Tape Monitor and then into a dbx400x Program Route Selector. It not only expands my Tape Monitor to handle nearly unlimited external devices but it makes routing for listening or recording easy with simple pushbuttons. But I digress...
The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great! With one caveat - My receiver actually has 5.1 analog Outputs (probably like yours) so I can drive up to 6 external amplifiers if I want to (I drive 4).
A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.
You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels. ** Front L&R Pre Out >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> NEW amplifier IN.
Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.
Well,i can tell you are not very focus,cause you posted Denon AVR-2807 with Bose AC 15 problem,but under your details,you put down AVR-5807! First of all,it is so unfortunate that you are NOT able to gain and experience to true ability in sound for this wonderful receiver when you are using a dual tweeters speakers and expect to have good sound separation as a TWO WAY speakers(a tweeter and a midrange-for true high frequency and mid frequency sound separation.) Secondly,you have defeated the audio configuration of the Denon AVR-2807,since all your speakers are control BY the Bose subwoofer. Now,i could show you a way to hook this up,and it doesn't matter how you connect them, they are the "bicycle tires" installed with a "Porche"engine if you know what i mean. If you want a good recommendation for your "beast",i will more than happy to show you the way! Cheers, solutiondoct
Finally the problem was with the HDMI cable. When I pushed it in on the TV set the problem disappeared. It seems the connections must be quite firm on the HDMI cables otherwise anything may interfere to the sound.
