In an old discussion about Adding a Graphic EQ to (Stereo) Receiver with no "Tape 2" Loop... Discussion in 'Audio Hardware' started by Kaskade10729, Apr 6, 2014. I have an old Sony STR-K840P stereo receiver that doesn't have a Tape Monitor connection, and the older model graphic EQ I am getting also doesn't have a pre-amp connection so it is impossible for me to get a loop for the EQ to be used in a global fashion. But since I only have two or three components hooked up to my Sony receiver, can I hook each one up to the EQ and then to the receiver, and use the EQ for all of the components (even though it doesn't have the capacity of having a loop for all of my components globally? This stuff is all new to me but I am willing to try it anyway once I receive the used Yamaha EQ I have ordered from eBay.com but I would like someone in the know to answer my question. Thanks for any responses I get from this question a head of time.
