Question about Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Yamaha RX-385 receiver. I want to increase the number of speakers I can use from the receiver. I am considering buying a speaker selector that says it can connect 4 sets of speakers I can run to 4 different locations. Do you know if the RX-385 is compatible with such products? Does Yamaha have a product I can use with my receiver to run speakers to additional locations? Thanks.

This speaker selector is standard accessory equipment for home audio equipment -- just follow the instructions with the unit.

The speaker selector unit has circuitry which prevents the amp from being overloaded by connecting too many speakers in parallel to the receiver. The receiver will have to be run at a higher volume level to drive all the additional speakers at the same volume as two sets of speakers, but this will not damage the amp in so doing.

Would a Yamaha RX-V1 drive the Bose 901 Series VI speakers well?


The Bose 901's can handle up to 450w per speaker, using the Yamaha receiver, would not be MY first choice. Considering you invested in bose for a the quality of the brand, don't short change it like that with a lower powered receiver. NOT saying it won't do it, IT WILL, HOWEVER, if you really wanna see what those bose can do, get something more than the Yamaha RX. (110 watts)
Speakers like power, its best to run them at a minimum of 225watts. the closer you get to the 450w the better. 110watts is just too low, and can damage the bose. HECK, under powering ANY speaker can damage it QUICK!.

IS YAMAHA AMPLI RX SERIES RIPP OFF


Maybe the problem is with your speakers. Shorted speakers or speakers that are being over-driven can cause the receiver to shut down and possibly be damaged.

Yamaha RX-V465 switches off when increasing volume beyond -21.0dB


What speakers you have connected? This receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers (not 4 ohm). Also check if the ohm settings are correctly set in Advanced Setup (in standby press on the front panel STANDBY while holding STRAIGHT button). In this menu check the setting SP IMP. (speaker impedance) if it maches your speakers (6 or 8 ohm).
Disconnect all inputs and also all speakers. With nothing connected, try to increase the volume. If it still will power off, the unit is probably faulty and should be repaired.
If it does turn off only with speakers connected, check the speaker wires and the speakers, the problem will be there.

Add more speaker to dvd player/s-air suround sond system


I have revisted this question and I *think* you are talking about a "speaker selector". A speaker selector is a unit that prevents an amp or receiver from going into safe mode or shutting down.

We want to hook up eight speakers in eight differnet rooms (one speaker per room with individual volume control) and hook them up with yamaha RX-V1800 receiver so that we can play all the speakers in...


Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

No zone 2 sound coming from yamaha amp rx-v861


Had same problem. A and B speakers are basically connected together, and there is no way to get the same volume out of each speaker. This is not a multi-source receiver like Onkyo. Zone 2 needs to go to a seperate amplifier and select teh correct source on the fornt,

Receiver turns on and clicks off when volume is raised over 8 or 9 on the dial


I had the same problem with my Yamaha amp. It turned out to be a shorting speaker wire. When I resoldered the speaker wall outlet connection it worked fine!
