Im running sound into the receiver via HDMI from a PC.
Im using two QEF Q90's for the front speakers a Boston center channel and a JBL woofer connected to the preout.
I can't seem to get my woofer to work with my loudspeakers to play stereo music.
I can only get woofer to work when the output on the computer is set to stereo over hdmi.
And the reciever is set to Dolby , Neo 6 or Neural
None of these options are good for listening to music. The soundstage seems to move all over the place
I've tried changing speaker setting on the computer to Stereo/5.1/7.1 to no avail.
whats the difference between the 2308 and the 2308CI ?
mate selling a 2308 for £90... is that a decent price for such an old amp? or is the CI much better?
It's a solid unit with basic Audyssey calibration and a couple of HDMI inputs. Obviously a bit dated in some ways but it really depends on your needs.
My needs are having never had any 5.1 surround sound system, its finally time to go surround sound and I figured for a few hundred pounds I could get a decent used amp and speakers that would probably be more than good enough for my lame ears
I dont need to feed HMDI because my 3D projector does not like being fed messed up signals. I guess I just need optical and standard hook ups for my ps3, xbox and PC?
Following on from the last post, I have an issue with receiving 3d Sound from a dual output Sony 790 Blu-ray Player. What should the manual set up be on the 2308 to receive 3D audio only signal as as soon as I switch from 2D to 3D on the bluray the sound goes off. The 3d picture is streamed directly to the projector.
Cheers - I honestly thought that I had the HDMI separation set on the Sony so had never checked it all of the time I have fannied on with the Denon! Just changed it and it works great which is a relief as the 2308 has an awesome sound and didnt want to upgrade to an inferior 3D receiver (or change Blu-ray)
Time to watch Closer to the edge in 3D now
Hi tinng321, it appears it may have been removed. Go into Menu -> Manual Setup -> Option Setup -> Source Delete and make sure it is not deleted.
BTW I tried resetting my 2308's microprocessor but I can't for the life of me get that reset procedure to work! Do I have to hold the buttons for a really long time or something? Pressing all simultaneously doesn't work. Pressing the speaker A/B buttons slightly ahead of the power button doesn't work (it won't turn on until I lift the speaker A/B buttons). I hold the power and press the speaker A/B buttons just after and hold for up to a minute or so until my fingers get sore and I've NEVER got the display to blink.
Thanks for any help y'all can offer!
I have a 2308 that I have had for about five years, but have never used the HDMI inputs until now. My issue is when using an HDMI input, the video outputs fine, but the audio through the amp is just a bunch of hissing. If you turn the volume all of the way up, you can barely make out the dialogue behind the static. If the audio output is set to the TV, the audio is fine. Also, if I use the optical jack, the audio is also not working. If I use analog inputs, the audio works fine.
Another interesting thing was if I did test tones, each tone came out of all the speakers, instead of the specific one being tested.
Both HDMI inputs were tested, one with a cable box and the other with a DVD and both did the same thing.
Refer to the section in your Owner's manual on "Resetting the microprocessor" (near the back) and see if that doesn't resolve the issue.
I am doing my first surround system, I just purchased the 2308ci thinking that it was a 7.1 system. I know it has the 7 channels and all, but looking at the codecs it seems like most of them would not even use all the speakers.
I was hoping for 7.1 audio to have the full immersion experience with games, but also on movies and music of course. Did I make a mistake? It doesn't support the new HDMI AV TrueHD or DTS, though I know it has a different version for audio only sources.
Is this a 7.1 system or what? 6.1 would actually work alright too but I don't see how it goes back and forth unless it just pairs the rear two...
A lot of questions here, If you could at least help me out in any way you could I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
So I think it should work out knowing this. Not sure if the auto tuning will still be valid and how it will go but at least I'm on the right track. (ordering cables now). I'd still appreciate any insight if anyone is around who knows about using these older systems. I just went from despair to joy so hopefully this will work out. Thanks.
The 2308CI was released in 2007; however, cannot play the HD DD/DTS codecs which is possible on the next higher model 2808CI and all models since that year. When playing a 2CH or 5CH DD/DTS track, you can use Dolby Digital PLIIx - Cinema to expand the audio to 7.1 and use the surround back speakers.
