How to install a audiosouse equalizer (eq 100)

Actually, you have several tape loops: CDR/Tape, VCR1 and VCR2. The bottom right part of Page 7 in the manual shows how to connect a Tape Deck (or any in/out processor).

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.

The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.

In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).

Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.

The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.

EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.

In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? They would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

Okay, back to the hook-up: Receiver Tape- or VCR Out to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-In; Receiver Tape- or VCR In from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-Out.

I have a whole array of 2-channel analog processing electronics looped out of one Tape Loop on my AVR - via a dbx 400x Program Route Selector - for making tapes or CD-R Audio recordings and otherwise modifying the analog sound for various purposes.

How do I unlock the panel on my Denon AVR-1708?

Power the unit off using the On/Off button. (not the larger On/Standby button) While the unit is powered off, press and hold the "Speaker B" and "Mode" buttons. Without releasing those buttons, power the unit back on. This will unlock the panel.

I have a denon April s470h receiver and was listening to it today on a low volume when all of a sudden the volume went to the max. Turned it off by the remote and a minute later the receiver turned back on at full volume, had to unplug. Has anyone had this problem?

You will need an engineer for this. The volume control is on these machines controlled by an IC or chip. That sometimes goes faulty and needs to be replaced. They have often a great deal of pins that solder on to the board and need special tools to get them on and off.

I just received my new Denon AVR- x3600h 120V from amazon. When powering the receiver the power switch light is off no indication that the power supply is powering the unit. The voltage at the power cable is 120V tested be AV meter. I am worried that this unit was powered by another purchaser with 220 v before it was sold to me. If this is the case what can I do to repair it or check it etc as resending to USA is costly as I live in Saudi Arabia many thanks

If you can contact Denon to see if they have a repair centre in your part of the world. As going inside the unit would end any guarantee. If you cannot get satisfaction from them and are prepared to violate the guarantee terms, then open up and look to the power supply section. With a bit of luck the fuse might have failed. But you will have to foot the bill for all future repairs.

I have a denon DCM-360 still working --but certain discs it does not recognize --these are CDs I just bought from amazon, still sealed (Dutton label).

The only thing to think of is to try a cd cleaner. Some have very fine brushes to clean the dust mites out. Typically the player is on it's way out when this starts to happen but I hope that I am wrong. Good luck to you

Denon AVR-1604 - how to select AM band without FM antenna?

Try pressing the Band button on the remote or on the AVR-1604. On the receiver, the band button is just below the left-hand edge of the LCD screen. To the right of the band button are the DTS button and the preset station buttons. There are no warnings about needing both the FM and AM antennas connected in the manual. Crutchfield has the manual for the AVR-1604 on the product page: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-uT0aFEwnSpF/p_033AVR1604/Denon-AVR-1604.html . The current link to the manual is https://pdf.crutchfieldonline.com/ImageBank/v20111011085300/Manuals/033/033AVR1604.PDF . Denon's support site, https://denon.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3954/~/am%2Ffm-%28tuner%29-audio-reception , recommends having both antennas connected. A replacement FM antenna is fairly cheap. This one, https://www.amazon.com/Ancable-Replacement-Antenna-AVR-3806-3808CI/dp/B01LW5A7AU , looks similar to the one included with the original parts for the AVR-1604. I hope this helps.
