Problem: When setting the receiver to Action or any audio setting that that should include all audio channels, there is a very bad echo. When stereo is turned off, all the sound comes through all channels and there is no echo.
Did we miss something in the setup or is there a problem with the different brands together?
Are you past the point of no return on your receiver? If no, maybe take it back sand try a different receiver [Denon,Yamaha,Onkyo]. My parents old summer home used to have that issue in the basement. we put in a big rug which did help a great deal and put in a Onkyo with audyssey [can't remember the model]. The echo was very minimal after that.
