I’ve been trying to figure out what to do here and I’m hoping someone can point me in a decent direction.
My wife has a hard time hearing some speaking parts on shows we watch. Things get quiet or loud or she catches parts of words. We’ve turned on subtitles to compensate however this doesn’t seem to be doing the job.
We use an echo cube primarily. HDMI to the tv, then digital audio to a switcher then to an old Sony receiver. I’ll detail all components below.
We have 4 speakers ceiling mounted, a center channel speaker on our tv stand and a subwoofer. It’s a menagerie of items here.
Any tips or help is appreciated. Hopefully I posted this in the right forum.
Tv: LG 49uj6300-ua
Settings: Sound out set to optical.
Optical switcher: A 1mii. I bought this for when the baby is sleeping. The hearing problems existed before this and adding this didn’t change anything as far as I can tell. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D1JJBJR..._jGv3Eb4H5GQXT
Mounted ceiling speakers
4x Boston Accoustics. These came with the home. They have mcs 95 on them and also baj016438
Receiver. *sigh* I know this is old. Maybe this is the problem I just don’t want to go spending money if it’s not (note the baby comment)
The center speaker and sub came with the receiver.
Fire cube. Most recent model
We do have an amazon recast as well and some content comes from there rather than streaming. I finally decided to ditch my old Apple TV with Perian on it a few years back and went with amazon for our streaming device. The cube was chosen since it has an ir blaster.
Oh and there’s an xbox one we use for optical media as well. Not that we use it that much anymore.
I hope this is enough to provide an idea of what we have. However I’m more than happy to go looking at anything else.
We watch content from a number of sources. Mostly streaming now.
