What I noticed is that the music portion of any video plays out loud and clear but when there are lyrics in a song or dialogues in a movie, it's low and muffled.
I'm pretty sure this is something to do with the settings on my AVR. My layman understanding is that the AVR thinks there is a center channel connected and is redirecting the voice bit to that speaker which doesn't exist. What strengthens my hunch is that when I'm streaming music through AirPlay, the songs play out perfectly well.
I've installed the Yamaha setup guide but yet to setup my speakers through it. Would running through the setup fix this issue or are there any specific settings I need to change?
1) Make sure the speakers are away from walls and not stuffed in a cabinet.
2) Run YPAO set-up. You will need to do this again when you add the center.
