Well I got my x4000 back from geek squad today. So far no automatic shut offs. I'm not gonna unclench my butt until at least 2 weeks of no problems.

Sony KDL-70R550A (passive 3D tv)
Denon x4000 (amazing sound correcting software)
Klipsch RF-62IIs (amazing horns)
Klipsch RC-62II (so clear)
Klipsch RS-41IIs (so full)
SVS PC12-NSD + Klipsch RW12d (so boom)

Might as well stick a lump of coal up there while you wait [emoji6]

Hi all,
I just upgraded to the X4000 from the 1911. I ran Audyssey (currently with a 3.1 setup) and noticed that all the sounds seem muted than what I just left off from the 1911. I just watched Rio 2 (kids choice not mine) and my sub wasn't doing a thing, nor were my mains very loud at -10? After the movie I put on Pandora through the Network and the sub/mains came to life but still less output than what I am used too. From reading the 100s of reviews, the sound should be spectacular compared to my 1911. I believe it's user error at this point. Can anyone point me in the right direction regarding what I am doing wrong? While the movie was playing I verified on the receiver that it was utilizing the fronts, center, and SW.
I will probably rerun Audyssey when time allows but I am a little befuddled because I thought I was fairly up to speed with Denon products by this time...

Appreciate any assistance.
DW

You need to check the input assigments for the source name that you are using for the DTV box. If there are "higher priority" input options assigned the receiver is probably assuming that the audio is coming in via HDMI or optical. You can either manually unassign any other inputs from that name, or set the Input Mode setting for that name to "analog" to force the analog audio.

Hey all, I own the X4000 and a set of Klipsch speakers ( RF-62 II's, RC-62, Paradigm rears and a Power Sound XV-15). I have owned several Denon receivers and am familiar with Audyssey and have set up several of my systems with good results. My issue is that after Audyssey is set-up and you check the speaker levels the test tones emitted seem very low in volume and no where near a 75db SPL. I do not remember the tones being that soft when I first set it up about a year ago. Is there a setting I am not aware of that controls the volume of these tones?

Unlike earlier models, where the test tones started out at "reference" volume (i.e. 75dB), a year or two ago Denon switched the ch level check test tones to start at the same volume as the current master volume setting. So, for example, if you are listening at -40 and then go to Speakers > Levels and start the test tones, they will be at 35dB (75 minus 40)!

So just use the master volume setting to raise the tones to 0dB (or 80 on the absolute number scale) if you want to check levels. Although before you go mucking anything up and changing the internal levels, read this: Why is it a bad idea to use your AVR test tones to check SPL levels set by Audyssey
