Question about Bose Audio Players & Recorders
Similar problem...I came up with a solution with
help from Onyko. For my receiver, at least, the bottom line was that
the output from the equalizer MUST go to 'Receiver, Tape In'! Since
that is the ONLY input source from the equalizer, you must combine
elsewhere. Part of my setup included the Radio Shack Audio/Video
Selector box which costs $21.99...you might not need it, but in my
case, I couldn't plug all components into the back of the receiver and
have them go through the equalizer.
Since I have a satellite receiver, DVD player and TV, that I want to route through the equalizer, here is the way mine is set up and working:
Satellite receiver and DVD player out to Radio Shack audio/video selector
Audio/video selector out to VCR in.
VCR video directly to TV
VCR audio red/white (audio) out to equalizer
Equalizer out to Receiver Tape IN (Receiver Out not used)
Hope this (or a variation of it) helps.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Initially, the 14 seconds interval is significant. This is indicative that whatever fault it is, it is coupled to a time-based circuitry. The time-based circuitry need not be complicated. it can actually be a simple resistor/capacitor network. The capacitor takes a certain amount of time to charge and then discharge (14 seconds, 'whoomp'). Having said this, then the foremost suspect would be an electrolytic capacitor, probably low value (1~4.7uF), probably a coupler/decoupler. Of course the capacitor serving other functions could very well be the culprit as well.
Corrective measure would entail, identifying/determining which capacitor and replacement. Tedious as it may sound, each capacitor would then have to be tested for capacitance and leakage out of circuit or at least 1 leg un-soldered.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

Yes, there should be no issues using your Bose speakers with your Sony receiver. Sony has a "hookup guide" to help here -
Please rate my answer, thanks.

Bose Lifestyle (and all Bose-amplified speaker) products and their speakers are SYSTEMS and should not be split up or intermixed with other brands or models. Damage will probably result. Proprietary connectors provides a clue.
The digital audio out should work with the Bose. You could still use your Denon to drive a conventional sub in your scheme, but you would have to manually match volume with the Bose. Or go Full Monty and buy a full complement of speakers for the Denon, retask the Bose and slave its sources to the Denon.

Testimonial: "Thank you sir; your quick response is highly appreciated. I returned Denon and am considering DVDO Edge. Regret running Bose wires @ construction?"
