If it's a one time thing, don't worry about it and move on with your life. It the issue starts happening persistently, then I'd be worried.

Are you worried when your PC has a hiccup? Likely not. Same deal here. smile.gif

just bought a 791 off ebay to replace the defective 2808 which i just sent back. The 2808 pushed my deftech studio's really well, I'm hoping the 791 has enough to run them well. The receiver from the Onkyo s3400 did not push them well which is the reason for the upgrade but I'm already having second thoughts as the denon specs are similar to the receiver on the s3400.

Anybody running deftech studio monitors with the 791 or the 1911?
post #4924 of 5023
The 20W difference will be moot. The bigger difference will be dropping from Audyssey MultEQ XT (2808CI) to MultEQ (791).
post #4925 of 5023
I hadn't even used correction with the 2808 because the sub wouldn't work so I didn't get that far. But does it even help for just music?
post #4926 of 5023
Sure .. music .. movies ... EQing the speakers will generally help in most situations.
post #4927 of 5023
I finally ran audyssey on my 791 with my 4.1 stereo only. It really helped the high volume clarity and it really just sounds great, almost as good as good as my main HT setup.

It didn't help the low end though, I am only using a klipsch sub 8 temporarily, so i have to assume that is the only part missing now. I can't wait to upgrade the sub,,,,very soon. Do I need to run audyssey again with a bigger sub or is it already setup?
post #4928 of 5023
Anytime you add more speakers or sub, you should run Audyssey again to ensure the new speakers/sub are EQ'd.
post #4929 of 5023
Hey guys, I never tinkered too much with Audyssey before but now that I've upgraded my set up, I'm trying to get everything perfect. Anyways, I ran Audyssey and for my front speakers, it gave me the full band setting from the auto detect. For some reason I can't go in and change it unless I go to manual settings which seems to be a different audio profile then the regular Audyssey setting. The regular has a much nicer sound profile and it is perfect aside from the really low frequencies around 16-30hz where the tower speaker clearly can't handle it and just distorts the sound. Is there a way to copy the profile from the auto calibration over to the manual and further tweek it from there? I just want to set the crossover higher so that my sub does all the work below 80hz.
post #4930 of 5023

The "Auto Setup" settings are stored after running Audyssey and cannot be changed. Rather any changes should be made using the "Manual Setup" and these settings then become the active settings. Note that Audyssey only sets the EQ, while the AVR is setting the LARGE/SMALL, crossover, and volume levels which is why these can be changed without impacting the actual Audyssey EQ of the speakers/sub.
post #4931 of 5023
I set the speakers to small and crossover at 90 but the fronts still play frequencies they shouldn't. I'm playing a calibration cd that has different tones. When i go to audyssey settings it still shows the fronts as full band speakers.
post #4932 of 5023
The audyssey settings will never change - they aren't the settings really, just a "report card" of what was measured during calibration. The active settings are ALWAYS what's in the manual setup menus. The parameter check in the audyssey section is just for reference.

Crossovers are not "brick walls", they are slopes. Typically 12db per octave on the hi pass on the satellites. So if you cross over at 90hz they will be down 12db at around 45hz. So it's normal for them to still make noise below the crossover, it's just very rolled off. You aren't going to damage them.
post #4933 of 5023
Scrap that everything is good now. I don't know what mode it was in but that was the issue. Seems to be working right now.
post #4934 of 5023
You probably were in a DIRECT mode which bypasses the crossovers and all other digital processing.
post #4935 of 5023
Alright thanks for the help. On that note i posted about a problem a year ago and never got a response. I have a problem when I'm playing music through the Xbox. If i shut the tv off the sound shuts off. I don't have hdmi link enabled so I don't get why it's doing this. Anyone have an idea of this can be fixed?
post #4936 of 5023

One option would be to stick an HDMI switch or HDMI Detective in between the AVR and the TV. The other that I suggested the same day you posted this same question 2 years ago is to try an HDMI reset.

Thanks I will try this later. I couldn't find my old post before. I'll let you know if it works. It's been so long I've just dealt with it. Hope it works.

When you make a post in any of the AVSForum Denon Owner's threads, there's a 95% chance it will be answered.
post #4939 of 5023
No luck unfortunately.
post #4940 of 5023
What did you try?
post #4941 of 5023
Yesterday was one of the rare days the better half left me alone for a little while. So with my freedom I pounded on my stereo system in the garage, to the point where it went into thermal protection.

I'm confused as to why. It was only 80 degrees in the garage and the receiver sits on top of a tool box with nothing on the sides or top, plenty of air. Is this something to be concerned about?
post #4942 of 5023
I have a turntable connected to a phono stage and into the "Dock" input on a Denon AVR791. When I have the input set to "Direct" or "Stereo" I get no subwoofer activity. I get 5.1 sound when watching blu-rays.
post #4943 of 5023
That is expected behavior. Your front speakers are probably set to LARGE. Read here about Stereo/Direct modes: http://batpigworld.com/fadq.html#audio

There is no subwoofer content with a stereo signal unless you tell the receiver to reroute the bass.

Check your speaker connections/wires for excess wiring. Excess wire will cause this to happen. I recommend banana plugs if you don't have them already.

I run very short wires, longest is 5 feet, and yes I use banana plugs.

What did "pounded on my stereo system" equate to on the master volume level setting you used as 0db or 80 is the recommended absolute maximum to provide for enough available headroom for peaks.

I never went into the plus but i think it was -5 on the volume.

I haven't touched the master volume settings.

Given you're using banana plugs with likely no loose speaker wire stands, the other issues that would cause the AVR to shut down would be running low ohm (eg. 4-ohm) speakers at that level or amp failure.
post #4949 of 5023
I'm running deftech studio 350 and klipsch rb 61. I put a fan on it for a couple minutes then ran fine at moderate volume. If the amp failed I'd get nothing after that, right?
post #4950 of 5023
Correct.
