Onkyo receivers are equipped with volume and tone controls for adjusting audio. You can also connect a stereo graphic equaliser, which lets you fine-tune the sound across a range of frequencies using the equaliser's slide controls. There are two ways to connect an EQ to an Onkyo receiver. If you do not have a tape deck, you can plug in the standard stereo cables to the tape monitor jacks. You can also hook up the EQ to the Onkyo's preamplifier jacks. Either connection takes less than a minute.
