audiophiles of mabb

Postby morbid board eli » 29 Nov 2017, 19:29

yesterday i received a gift of a stereo receiver and accompanying floor speakers

they are old models–"vintage," if you like–from the olden times. a realistic sta-2000D receiver and two realistic optimus t-100 speakers

however i have no idea how to set them up or any such thing

so what do i do now

set up each speaker on the left and right

run speaker cable from the appropriate terminals on the receiver to the terminals on the back of the speaker

i'd suggest getting 12ga speaker wire, brand doesn't really matter, whatever is most reasonably priced

after that, plug source devices of your choice into the receiver, and select the appropriate input on the device to listen to its signal

post pictures of the front and back panel on the receiver if this doesn't solve your problem :santa:

that is very straightforward and helpful :llama:

but this is still going to be annoying :homework:

whenever wires get involved my brain turns into foop

it's really quite easy, the wire comes in braided pairs. you just strip off a half an inch or so from each end to insert into the terminal. one of the wires will usually have a white marking along it; make sure that it's inserted into the corresponding terminals on each end (so if it starts in the red connector on the receiver side, it should terminate on the red connector on the speaker side too)
