Delay only applies to the main zone. The newer models have a Video Mode that helps minimize any Zone 2 delay.

Resurrecting an ANCIENT thread here (and apologies for the cross-posting here and in the 4806CI thread). An 4806CI has been the backbone of my main home theater room for more years than I remembered (until I was reminded of how long it's been by looking at the dates of some of the posts here). In the last few months, the AVR has been doing some flaky audio things--primarily seeming to struggle with properly decoding the audio stream so that the volume of voice in the center channel is correct. When the problem occurs, say on a broadcast of ESPN SportsCenter or an MLB Network news show, the talking head on TV's voice drops to a very low or non-existence volume while the "sound effects" are left in the front left and front right. The only way to get normal voice volume again would be to set the sound processing to "Stereo." Sometimes toggling surround modes might kick the sound back to normal. But more often than not, it didn't work. The So I followed the general recommended technique here and reset the processor. Since I didn't make a load file from the internet connection first (d'oh!), the reconfiguration was a pain in the backside. And of course I've forgotten everything I once knew about Audyssey so now the MultEQ XT light is off. And I've got to re-learn all that stuff.

Current problem, though, is the Surround Back Left speaker, which is emitting a buzzing sound. (This is independent of the audio problem described above. It's not a speaker problem--when the two Surround Back speakers are connected as Surround B, they work fine. Problem is confined to the Back Left speaker. There doesn't appear to be anything interfering/crossing the speaker connector posts on the back of the amp--they are clean.

What's the likely diagnosis here? A bad amp driving JUST the one speaker? And is there anything that an end-user can do? I could haul the 4806 out of its tight little cubby hole to vacuum out any dust. (My AV closet is tight and I don't relish disconnecting and reconnecting the AVR just to try this.)

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. I don't have any compelling need to upgrade and wouldn't relish the notion of coming out of pocket to get a replacement just to get the Surround Back working again. I was thinking I might be able to reconfigure the Surround B speakers to carry Surround Back information. But the setup doesn't seem to allow for that.

Zone 2

Glad to see there are still users of the 4806. I had to move my 4806 out of the theater to the family room and I'm trying to set up zone 2 for the patio speakers. I'm pretty sure I have everything connected correctly. I can get music on zone 2 from the tuner and FIOS but not from the dvd player I can of course get sound (music) on the main zone from any source.

The audio from the dvd is via a digital optical cable to digital optical in on the 4806. Can this not be passed to zone 2?

Correct. Digital signals will not pass to Zone 2. Connect a RCA analog audio cable from the source device.

JD, thanks for the info. I'll have to get some cables.

With the AVR powered off, press/hold the UP/DOWN arrow buttons on the front panel while powering on the AVR. This should reset the microprocessor and network and allow you to restart the firmware update.

Quick Question: I don't want to go for 7200 as receiver technologies changes almost every year these days. How does the 4806 sound compares to the latest Denon latest receivers such as X4200/X6200. I only listen at moderate levels and my speakers are rated 4 ohm. I do understand latest receivers offers all latest technologies but asking from the SQ perspective alone such as Stereo or multi channel traditional formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS.

As both use the much more advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32 ... much better.

Thanks. Yes it does make sense as all the latest receiver uses advanced room correction technologies while the older receivers are solidly built with massive power supply but without the room correction it may not produce the best sound.
