• Can I put a phono lead from a receiver in to a powered speaker?

    I know that the receiver will send power down the cable, but will it affect the powered speaker at all? The receiver doesn t have any alternative line outs or anything and I wanted to use the bookshelf speakers I have for my front surround from the receiver.

  • My Sony BDV-E280 Surround system died. I need to buy a new player. How do I know if I can plug in my old speakers? It never says in descrptn?

    Best answer: If you buy a new HTiB, it will come with its own speakers. You cannot attach a DVD player to an HTiB. If you buy an actual receiver you will need to purchase a DVD Player and a set of surround speakers. The ones that came with the HTiB Will likely not match well with most receivers, which require real audio HI-FI... show more

If you buy an actual receiver you will need to purchase a DVD Player and a set of surround speakers. The ones that came with the HTiB Will likely not match well with most receivers, which require real audio HI-FI grade speakers that should all be of the same ohm rating, usually between 8 and 6 ohms with more expensive ones happy with driving 4 ohm examples. . HTiB speakers are not worth the money to salvage even if they were compatible.

  • How do I connect my Onkyo Receiver HT-R640 and SONY Bravia KDL-40V2500?

    I recently cut the cable cord, purchasing a couple of Roku Ultras and a Mohu Leaf.

    I recently cut the cable cord, purchasing a couple of Roku Ultras and a Mohu Leaf. I have an old SONY Bravia and I'm trying to hook up my Onkyo receiver so that I can listen to the TV audio through the receiver whenever I'm watching the Roku or the Leaf. Right now I'm using two HDMIs ports on the back of the TV, one for the Roku and another for the DVD player - both of which the audio is using the TV speakers. This leaves me six more external inputs on the TV. There may not be a way to hook up the Roku Ultra to play audio through the receiver but I feel like there should be a way to connect the receiver to the TV when I'm using the Mohu to watch local channels. Not really too savvy about these kinds of things, as you can tell, but am I wasting my time trying to use my receiver with the Mohu or Roku? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Best answer: Well, a drop-down screen will do you no good with out a projector, hahah,So that's on the list. Oh,.and projectors want hooking up to a source of movies or media, like a disc player or a PC or a cable connection, as projectors are just monitors, only eh, bigger. Real receivers do not come with speakers, so start looking at surround speaker sets. Besides having a place to mount the screen, you will likely need to figure out where to put the speakers, so look at your site and figure that out. Might want some stands, or mounting hardware, a means to hide or channel wireing so its a. not a mess, B. not underfoot. Also where to mount or site the projector, all this equipment plugs into wall power, so make advance prep for that, too. Projection TV is very, very light sensitive, so you need to be able to keep direct sunlight off the screen (curtans, blinds, different wall, Etc.

Of course you can't get surround sound out of a stereo receiver, but you can get very good Stereo sound from the equipment you have As Long As the TV has analog audio outputs (RCA jacks or a headphone jack).

    Best answer: Maybe...

    Of course you can't get surround sound out of a stereo receiver,
    but you can get very good Stereo sound from the equipment you have
    As Long As the TV has analog audio outputs (RCA jacks or a headphone jack).

    Don't confuse inputs and outputs.

    Many modern TVs don't have analog audio outputs.

    Digital outputs can be easily and economically converted to analog with a small accessory.

    Read The Owner's Manual for the TV.

    If necessary, call in a home theater installer for assistance.
