I would really need to know the brand and model number of your receiver to be able to find out any specifics on it. Can you get me that info?

Klipsh is a speaker manufacturer, so we would need to know what amplifier/receiver you're using with them in order to determine if a preamp and EQ can be used.

It is the AVR-687 7.1 770 watt AV home receiver...
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 3 months ago

Thank you. Please give me a minute to look this up. First though- a preamp is redundant when using a receiver as a receiver is (by nature) a preamp, and amplifier in one unit. What is the purpose of wanting to use a preamp with this system?

Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 3 months ago

The Equalizer can be connected to the Denon however- and would connect to the "CDR Tape IN" and "CDR Tape Out" jacks. (The EQ Input would connect to the CDR/Tape Out, and the EQ Output would connect to the CDR/Tape In). As far as the Preamplifier, it wouldn't be needed in any way, but could be connected between a single source (such as a CD player), and the receiver.

From Visio to a Samsung!!
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 3 months ago

I'm sorry that's well beyond the original question and more than I anticipated. I will opt out at this point and perhaps another expert will assist. Goodbye.

Hello, my name is Rusty. Changing your TV shouldn't affect the sound, did you have the sound coming from your TV via optical cable?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No the Visio was connected to RCA connectorsAnd played fine but the Samsung is conneected to the optical and I can't get any sound...
Technician: Rusty, Engineer replied 3 months ago

Ok, in your Samsung menu, locate your sound menu. Turn the TV speakers off, and make sure the audio signal type is not set to PCM. It should be set to Dolby or Pro Logic. That should activate the optical audio output.

If you still have trouble getting sound, let me know. There may be another setting in your receiver that needs to be set so that it looks at the optical connection for the audio signal to get it working.
