PREAMP or RECEIVER
Connecting the CP-1
in a Tape Monitor Loop
Connect the main outputs of your audio preamplifier or the preamplifier
output of your receiver to Input I on the CP-1.
Inputs I and II are electrically identical and can be used interchangeably.
The CP-1 will also act as a line-level preamp with three inputs (including the
built-in tape monitor loop) if you wish to connect, for example, the audio
outputs from a TV receiver/monitor, a CD player and a VCR directly to it.
Connect the CP-1’s MAIN outputs to your main stereo channels. Connect
any additional amplifier/speaker combinations to the remaining outputs
on the CP-1: SIDE to the side amplifiers, REAR to the rears, CENTER to the
center- channel amplifier and SUB WOOFER to the subwoofer amp.
Locate the button below the SUB potentiometer marked CENTER/OUT,
PHANTOM/IN. If you have no center front speaker, push it in; if you have
a center channel, make sure this button is in the out position.
If you have a receiver with no external access to the preamplifier outputs (or
you wish to use the tape monitor loop on your preamp), you can use a tape
output or external processor loop to the CP-1. However, any change in the
receiver’s volume control after the system is adjusted will upset the balance
between the main and auxiliary speakers. If you are using this configura-
tion, you should now turn the receiver’s volume control all the way down.
If there was a tape deck previously connected to your receiver's monitor
loop, connect it to the CP-1's tape outputs and inputs.
Turn off ALL audio and video components, including individual power
amplifiers. (Unplug any preamps and power amps that don’t have
switches.) Locate the gain trim potentiometers on the CP-1 rear panel; these
are knobs at the top of the panel, marked REAR, SIDE, MAIN, CENTER and
SUB. Turn each one all the way down (counterclockwise as viewed from
