M 1.5t and connecting to a stereo reciever with no inputs

Post by jefftkac » Sat May 04, 2013 6:35 pm

Hello All,
I have recently purchased a Carver M 1.5 t Amplifier and I need to hook up to a newer normal Onkyo stereo receiver /amplifier and obviously I want to use the 1.5 as the obvious power source and unsure how to connect. Obviously the newer equipment is either arrogant and marginal enough to not think it needs clean power, or I am out of options. Can someone tell me how to connect to use this awesome Carver product. If I am unable please advise the proper preamp to use to make my world of clean bright power. Thank you and pardon any lack of knowledge, I have raising children the last 10 years and now entering mid life crises wanting to return to what is rightfully mine, my time! Thanks,

Frankie The Mouth

Welcome to the forum !!

Look for a set of outputs on the Onkyo labeled "PRE-OUT" and connect these to the 1.5.

If you need a separate pre-amp the Carver C-1 is an excellent choice and relativle inexpensive & turns up on ebay often.

Good Luck.

Welcome to the forum! Does the Onkyo have pre out and main in jacks in the back if so you would use the pre out jacks to feed into the input of the M1.5T. This would allow you to use the volume and tone controls that are present on the Onkyo. A pic of the back of the onkyo might be helpful if you have a camera.
