My external amp does stay on all the time and the speakers it is attached to immediately reproduce the test tones. Also, when I engaged the "Enhanced" DSP on my 3060 while I was playing Atomic Blonde, the rear overheads worked. There's just something about the native Atomic BlondeDTS:X MA soundtrack that my setup doesn't like. Fortunately it's not a big deal because I can get things back to normal by activating the Enhanced DSP. Anyway, I can't thank everybody enough for your suggestions about my, typically, nerdy problem.
I’m not sure we are communicating effectivately
@king at this sell sheet for your Sonnace 2-100 amp
You said that your Sonnace amp lights one left one right for the rear elevation speakers. Does not come on for the movie Atomic Blonde. You verified that your Yamaha is receiving a DTS Master X signal. Thats a good sign. If you switch/add the DSP Mode to Enhanced you can now hear all four elevation speakers. I assume your sonnace amp l and r outputs light up also.
To me it’s possible that with this particular movie that the rear elevation output signal from your Yamaha AVR is not able to trigger the threshold to the auto on input signal sensor within the sonnace amp.
You have verified that it works correctly on all other movies. Works when you go into yout AVR test signals. Works with enhanced DSP Mode.
@k in your owners manual for the sonnace amp. If the off selection turns off the auto function try that.
Or just try this.
To verify this. Should be simple to do. If the sonnace amp does indeed have three position selections for the input signal sensor.
On the back of your Sonnance 2-100 amp.
There is an input signal selection switch.
If you select the off position. That should disable the auto signal detection.
Now your amp should be on all the time.
To turn the power to the amp on/off it [email protected]
@k like there is a power button on the front that you can use.
I’m not familiar with this amp. So some of this is just a SWAG
or a familiar Navy term SNAFU...
