How do I hook up an equalizer to my Yamaha receiver?

Last Update: 03/02/2011

To connect an equalizer to any of the Yamaha receivers listed below, you would first connect the Line-Out (Rec Out) of your equalizer to the Main-In of your receiver. Now, connect the Line-In (Tape PB) of your equalizer to the Pre-Out of your Yamaha AV receiver, which will complete the connection.
Below are current Yamaha models that will accommodate a stereo graphic equalizer.

  1. RX-797: Pre-Out/Main-In
  2. RX-497: Tape Monitor
  3. RX-397: Tape Monitor

NOTE: Many of our AV receivers have Parametric EQ"s built in, eliminating the need for an external EQ.
