Hooking Cassette Deck to R-15PM

Recommended Posts

I've started getting back into cassettes lately. I have a set of 2 R-15PMs. I wanted advice on how (and if) I could incorporate a cassette deck into my set up. My speakers only take RCA input, and the old receivers I've been checking out in thrift stores all use speaker wire. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

You'll need to find a pre amp with rca inputs and outputs.  That's assuming that the speakers have rca inputs.

Hmm.  According to Klipsch, the R15PMs are "powered" and have RCA inputs on the back of the right speaker switchable for either phono or line level analog input.  If so, seems to me that you could just run a set of RCA interconnects between your deck and the R15s and be good to go.....

Why are you looking at receivers? Just plug the cassette deck straight into your speakers. RCA out on cassette deck to RCA in on the speakers

Or use the Aux out RCA plugs on the receiver. The speakers has amps in them, so they are in effect like the receiver. The speaker wires are to run into speakers without amps..

Also, I see the R51PM's have speaker connections as well, so you could use the amp in the receiver by hooking the receiver to the speakers by using speaker wire. Using that method you wouldn't use the amps in the speakers (but that kind of defeats the purpose).
