Hello all! I am new to this site as well as new to the audiophile world. I have a couple questions and am looking for advice from anyone willing to share. The following is what I am working with.
Sherbourn PA 7-350
Legacy Whispers (no powered Subs)
Legacy Marquis HD Center
Legacy Phantom HD Rear
Polk Audio PSW 650 which is not keeping up at all!
Here are my scenarios/questions
1. I've had the Marantz AV7701 for a couple of months now and have had some issues with the volume decreasing 20-30% for a second and then returning to normal while watching TV. One time I lost volume completely and it did not resume until I paused and unpaused the program that I was watching. None of these issues happened with the previous receiver (early 90's model) so I think it's fair to rule out my Direct TV box/signal.
2. Is it normal that my sub (hooked up to sub pre out) does not work in stereo mode? It works if I am watching something programmed in 5.1 only. The sub worked in Stereo mode on my early 90's model receiver. I have my front speaker setting to "small"
