Question about Denon AVR-3806 Receiver

Computer to Denon via Monster Headphone cable to V.Aux (Front) RCA inputs

I'm using a Monster cable (Headphone Jack to RCA) to play CPU sound on my Denon AVR 3806. Problem is I get all kinds of feedback....

I looked in the Audio-In setup menu and the only options for V.Aux (Front) are Opt (Optical), COAX or OFF?? No option for RCA??

I've tried them all but I still get tons of feedback and can barely hear the CPU audio -- - Is there a setting I'm missing??

THanks for the help

Are you using a stereo-mini to RCA cable that has a red and a white RCA plug? What I mean is, you should have the one cable coming out of the headphone jack on the computer, and two (left and right) cables going to the receiver. The only other thing I can suggest is making sure the cables are tight. Maybe try another input on the receiver. There really shouldn't be any feedback unless there is some underlying problem.

Gotta find an audio output from the TV and run it to aux input on the home theatre, select the aux function and it should work, if your tv has no audio out see if it has a headphone jack you can use as an audio out, can get a cable with 3.5mm headphone jack one 1 end and rCA red/white on the other, becareful when doin this as the audio output level froma headphone jack maybe controlled by the tV's volume itself. keep tV volume low and use the home theatre volume if your doing it that way

Connect to computer


On the back of your computer should be an audio out jack, generally marked Green. You can get a 3.5mm jack plug to two RCA plugs. The jack plugs into the green socket and the two RCA into an Aux/CD socket of the Denon. If you have other speakers connected to that Green Socket you can get a headphone splitter socket and plug that into the green socket.

I have a denon avr 2000 dsp and want a manual which nobody has and I want to hook up my ipod classic. There isn't any AUX front or rear and I don't have a dock.


To hook up your ipod, get a 3.5mm to rca cable and use your ipod's headphone jack. Just don't turn the volume way up on the ipod otherwise the input signal may to at too high a level for the receiver.

The battery on my car ent dead and now my AIWA CDC-MP32 keeps displaying "please unplug auxillary plugs"


Hi,

An auxiliary input allows you to select an external source and play it through the cd player's amplifier. It's often used for iPods and MP-3 players. Typically you just need an inexpensive patch cable that connects the headphone output from your portable player to the input on the CD player. After that you can select "AUX" as another source like CD or Tuner, and whatever's playing on the portable unit will be heard through the speakers.
Auxiliary inputs can be on the front or the rear of the CD player. Front aux inputs are typically 3.5mm stereo plugs, similar to a small headphone jack. Rear aux inputs can be RCA jacks or a 3.5mm jack. If you have a CD player with a rear aux input, a cable needs to be connected at the time of installation. Then the other end can be routed to whatever location in the vehicle you want to keep your portable player while you're using it with the CD player.
Front aux jacks are more convenient for quick connecting/disconnecting the portable player, but they tend to wear out over time.

Let us know if you have somethin more to ask else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya

How do you connect an Ipod throught the aux input?


what type of input does your radio have? if its a head phone jack input just get a headphone to headphone jack wire from radioshack and plug one end into you ipod and the other into the radio, set your radio to aux and your ipods volume to 70-80%. if its an rca input, it exactly the same but you will need an rca to headphone jack wire. if its usb, just use the cable that came with you ipod.

Configuring the Aux Input terminals to play my Ipod Nano


Hello

You need a cable which goes from RCA to mini jack. The mini jack goes into your ipod and the RCA cable goes into the back of the amp under input heading. Then you just need to set the amp on input via remote or manual and you should be set. Please rate this.

Best regards

How do I play music from my lap top on this sound system?


your laptop has an audio output jack that is 1/8 inch sterio .. your sound system likely has RCA input jacks .. you can get a cable from radio shack that has a 1/8 inch (3.5mm) sterio plug on one end and two RCA plugs on the other ..
plug the 1/8 inch jack into your computers audio output (headphone jack) .. the RCA plugs will connect to the AUX (analog) input on your sound system .. select AUX on your sterio system to select the computers input .. now you should have great sound from your computer . the computer likely provides only sterio information so the multi (7) channel feature of your sound system will have to fake it ..

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume


first of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.

Connecting new tv to DRA-685


you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).
