Try doing a "network reset" by pressing/holding the UP/DOWN arrow buttons on the front panel while powering on the AVR.

Hi Jd
did both the resets. Unit seems to be better...
will know when I get home from work.
Still have the noise in the L SW channel when approaching -10bd, can only hear it when nothing is playing.
Also, seems to be some high pitched noise (like a fan) running and can hear it when the room is quite. As I turn the volume up past -10bd can hear it.
is there an internal fan that runs to keep the 5308 cool? Bec I can hear something running inside. What do you think?

Another thing, I definitely will not update the firmware. What does this update correct, if you know?
thanks for getting back to me.

The audio is really spectacular with the 5308, I am really happy I upgraded from the 4308, which was a fine machine also.
Recenly moved, sold all my power amps, honestly can not really hear a difference.

The 5308 is in another league...

Hi all

I am trying to update my Denon AVR-5308CI using the network ethernet connection and I am not having any luck. It keeps hanging on 39 mins. Apparently it's a router issue on my end but I've turned off uPNP, set up a DMZ, and static IP for the Receiver. Still no luck. I am about to give up but does anyone know of a method to side load it somehow? Apparently i have A1.91 and there isn't a record of that version anywhere I could find, but the receiver does say there is a version to update. If not has anyone figured out how to get it to stop it from trying keep on updating automatically. I have to unplug the ethernet to stop it from shutting off and restarting attempting to connect to the Denon server. Grrr. Resetting the CPU doesn't do anything beyond wipe out all my settings.

Thanks!!

No.. This setting would only be used if you were using the 7.1 multi analog inputs and more specifically for the .1 input. Although it shouldn't make a difference, try setting the sub to LFE+MAIN. Does the music you're listening to have lower bass frequencies?


Yes. The annoying thing is that when I set it to any of the surround modes while listening to the DAC-1, the DD-15 immediately fires up and starts pumping out bass. Switch it back to Direct and nothing comes out of the sub. I really prefer to listen to 2-channel 96khz 24 bit music in 2-channel.

When I get home from work today I am going to try a soft reset and see if that does anything.
Did anyone come up with a solution for this ? I'm having the same issue and a search reveals the exact same problem but no real answer I can see.

Did you change the mode to "LFE+Main" as I suggested to the OP?
