My vintage Crown dl2 distinction series stereo controller/ power module / eq2/2 of sa2/ eq2/ fm1 com

With B&W 801 speakers has n't been hooked up in years. I have the manuals but i am a visual learner and cant seem to figure it out.....too much information to absorb.
What I need is a diagram or picture of the back of the components to see what cables go where.
My brother used to listen to it all the time back in the 80's and I miss him since he has passed. I want to listen to it yo bring out the good memories.

  • Sorry about misspells!!
  • Ok sorry my first time posting and I couldn't fix them
  • Hi Stansje...
    See my comment to your DL2 query under the, "Amplifiers" heading; you have this double-listed.

  • Maybe there is a youtube video available or something like that?

  • Hi Jensen...
    Good thought; I've been down that road too, also with success, but with 13 boards and 24 internal cables, the DL2 is extremely complex; that would be a daunting video. Stansje posted the same inquiry under two headings, and I addressed it in the, "Amplifiers" posting, but I have heard nothing since.

  • Oh, yeah, i see the issue... But good luck, hope you find a solution!

    Ever found a solution?

  • Hi Jensen...
    Stansje has apparently made some progress on his. At the outset, if you read my other post, I wanted to ask him about the condition of his gear. I've restored a lot of older equipment and quite often, how something was cared for before and during storage, has a lot to do with how the device is re-energized and restored. I have two of these, both in excellent condition. The slide switches in mine were intermittent, and causing one or both channels to go out. I ended up literally taking them apart, drilling holes in the backs of them, then flushing with DeOxit. Worked perfectly, but it should not be undertaken by anyone lacking excellent manual dexterity, as the springs inside those are ~1/32" in diameter. If one gets away, good luck finding it.

    This is Stansje i want to update everyone ....first of all i am a female that knew nothing about this kind of stuff... just learning since i wanted to hook my Crown DL2 series stereo.
    I lost my info and didnt know how to get back to this site. Just found it tonight with everyone's post.
    I only have one of the SA2 amps hooked up to my B&W 801 speakers and the DL2 controller. My FM1 tuner is also connected to the controller. My Crown EQ2 is not hooked up not sure where the cables go for the other SA2 amp nor the crown equalizer. So its not yet all working together to get the best sound possible but i have been listening to it as is. This journey has had its hurdles but interesting and educational for sure!
