Am in the process of upgrading my 20-year-old audio system. Decided on the Denon AVR-3803. I have some great old Sonab front and rear speakers and have purchased a good B&W center speaker.


My old system includes an ADC "Sound Shaper Thirty" (a stereo frequency equalizer with a built-in spectrum analyzer). The shop from which I got my Denon says I no longer need the equalizer, but since I can't relocate my speakers maybe I should keep and use the equalizer.


Very much will appreciate any suggestions.

These equalizers are problematic with a home theater system, because they have five or more channels, not two. The next situation is that most new receivers do not have tape monitor loops, which is where these equalizers used to connect. In order to use the ADC with your new Denon you would have to connect it between the front channel’s pre-out and main-in jacks – assuming is has them. If not, you’re out of luck.

Many thanks, Wayne. Based on your comments, I'll sell it to a collector or use it in a pure stereo environment.
