I have a 606 that I bought in I think 2008. The HDMI board failed after a couple years of use and it now sits unused in my basement. Do you think Onkyo will fix it for free?

Is Onkyo fixing HDMI problems or something else? From reading their announcement, it doesn't look like this is a HDMI fix as it's an audio/network problem. My defective unit has no hdmi functionality...

It doesn't sound like this is addressing HDMI board issues. What does the HDMI board have to do with networking? Why would the problem be audio only?


I think this addresses another defect.

Netflix is a lot louder than everything else at my home. I'm guessing Netflix cranks the volume up to 10. My solution is to turn down the volume when watching netflix compared to everything else. It...

You can use a Y splitter.


I'm assuming you don't want to spend a lot on measuring equipment since your receiver choices are budget picks. If I'm wrong, I apologize.

I have an EX and a plus. I can't find much difference between them. Obviously the EX has a little bigger enclosure and can dig a little deeper and louder, but I doubt I could pick one over the other...

I would probably 2 take of the rythmiks over 3 PB-2000. Otherwise I would prefer 3 PB-2000's.


For me, there's no point in paying a lot to go below say 18 Hz. There isn't much content and you...

The best bang for the buck would be to exchange the SB's for PB's. See how it works out. If it's not enough, add some more PB's or something similar until you get what you want.

I guess what I'm not certain about is if adjusting the curve for the atmos speakers will always have the same end result for the end listeners in all rooms. For example maybe lowering the signal at...

I don't follow. Audyssey applies a filter to everything regardless if you're using Neo:x or not. The filtering is used to produce a desirable output curve which, by default, is flat for every...

The Atmos speakers reflect sound off the ceiling so logically the source of the sound is above you. How would the reflected sound be any different than if you used a really big speaker on the...

You need a device with 4 microphones at a set distance from each other. I think trinnov uses one. With that, you can determine the location of all the speakers relative to reference point. The most...

This case is different though. In the past the goal was to have a flat response for all speakers. For the ceiling speakers you don't want a flat response. So there are two ways to approach this. One...

If your front 3 are eq'd properly, there's no need to match them. If you don't eq them, then matching would probably be preferred.
