I am a novice at hooking up stereo equipment so forgive me. I purchased a mint set of Bose 901 series VI and I am attempting to connect the EQ to the Onkyo TX-NR828 receiver but I do not see an "amp in". Is it possible without an amp?
How to hook up a Onkyo TX-NR828 to a Bose 901 SeriesVI EQ
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Offhand I don't know of any other way to connect it if you want multi-channel audio. And the 828 does not have direct channel inputs so you are SOL on that score. Just one more thing lost in the race to the cheapest AVR. And it isn't just Onkyo eliminating connections we find convenient.
I have an amp. Onkyo M-282. The only pre out that has two leads is the "front" which I have connected to the EQ which is connected to the audio line in on my Onkyo amp. The speakers are connected to the Onkyo-receiver front speaker posts. I am passing audio but I do not notice any difference in the speakers when I adjust the EQ. What am I doing wrong?
I'm sorry had the connections backwards. Sorry to doubt you my friend! Works wonderfully now. I bought the amp just because I thought that was the only way to connect them but when I connected them I received no signal. Just had them backwards.
Let me tell you I have this system in my 400 sq. ft. den and it ROCKS. Onkyo TX-NR828, Onkyo M-282, Bose 901 Series VI, Polk 660WI, 4 Optimus LX4's and 2 Carver TS441S. Thank you for your time it was greatly appreciated!
Now that the whole system is proven, all I have to do is run my wires in the walls and set my room. I am using Vizio for layout and design of the room. It's cool to find people that are generally interested in helping someone create a room that they can enjoy for years to come! Any more advice is sure welcomed. Thanks knucklehead90!
