    I am using a… Sony STR-DN1080 Martin Logan Motion 8s Motion 8 Center Channel Klipsch R-10 Sub I am having an issue with the receiver going into protected mode once the receiver is turned up a past 45 and a loud sound effect strikes. Think the chase scene of Casino Royale. I have isolated it down...

    Hey guys! What is the general opinion regarding Denon receivers? I’m afraid my Onkyo is starting to fail, and I’m on the market for a new receiver😭 I’ve been looking at this 4700 for a while now and can’t find any flaw with it. Does anyone who owns it have any issues with the unit, or can...

    Hello all, glad to have finally joined this awesome community after quite some time of browsing. Right now I'm using an integrated amp (cambridge cxa80) in a dedicated setup for just playing music. However since I watch a lot of movies, even more than I listen to just music, I'd like to start...

    I recently had to move to a smaller place and had to sell my Snell Type A speakers and my crappy underpowered Pioneer SC-71 Receiver. It was a 7.1 setup. I kept my Hsu research VTF3 MK3 powered subwoofer. I now need to get new Fronts, Center, and surrounds as well as a receiver and could use...

    I have a Yamaha RX-A810 Receiver/external speakers as my main audio control with several HDMI inputs connected to the HDMI Arc on my LG OLED55C8PLA TV. The TV is adjusted to produce dual optical/internal speakers audio output, because my wife sometimes likes to watch TV without the complication...
  7. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I recently added a JVC LX-NZ3 projector (with a 120" Screen Innovations screen) to my media room, complementing a 65" Samsung QN65Q90R television. The projector works beautifully: 4K, HDR, all of it. I'm super happy. The problem's with the Denon receiver (I think?). The TV's plugged into...

    Hey guys! I've decided to upgrade my home theater and, after doing a good deal of research, I've settled on the Klipsch RP-280FA and RP-450C. Even though they're a few years old, they seem to be in the perfect price vs. quality range, and everything I see tells me the jump to the RP-8000F isn't...

  10. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi all, novice here and need some advice on a multi-room speaker system that was pre-installed in my home (finally got around to utilizing it after many years!). Didn't receive any documentation or much information from the seller, so flying quite blind here. There are speakers installed in...

    My room has a projector screen on the front wall, and an office computer on the opposite back wall. Is it possible to have two 5.1 configurations that I switch between? Essentially switching the front speakers to the back, and the back speakers to the front with a simple push of the button...

    I'm replacing my 10 year old Onkyo & Polk 7.1 system with a full 7.1.4 Atmos system. My question is really from both a sound quality perspective and value perspective, does it make sense to pay 50% more for an 11 channel receiver than it would be to pair a 9 channel receiver with a separate 2...
  13. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Due to the setup of my office, I have two optical connections to my Harman Kardon AVR 700 receiver. I output TV audio and PC audio to the receiver. The cables are quite long, 9 or 10 feet each. It is intensely frustrating, but I have to wait 10 minutes or sometimes more for my receiver to output...

    Good morning New to the forum and just have a question around recommendation for a new receiver. I have hit a constraint with my current receiver (Denon x2300) in multiple ways as I'd like to do 5.2.4 (currently only at 5.2.2) and it doesn't have enough channels, and I'd also like the option...

    Hey everyone! I need some help. I love my vinyl, cds and cassettes and recently was given a Pioneer SX-301 which is a 70watt per channel receiver. I hooked it up to two Pioneer S-H452F-K floor speakers which are 100watt and sound awesome in the A channel. However, if I plug two bookshelf...

    I'm setting up 3 zones: 5.1 surround sound with TV - Den 4 channels (Music only) - living room 2 channels (Music only) - outside Will Denon X6700H work? I keep reading that I can only use 2 pairs of speakers to assign for other zones? But I see on the back that there are 3 pairs that are...

    Hey there. I'm in the market for a (likely) used high-end receiver, since I'm a cheapskate and can't justify spending $1000+ on a brand new one. Here's my current setup: Front: Paradigm Studio 100 V3 Center: Paradigm Monitor Center 1 V7 Rear: Paradigm Monitor Eclipse (Floorstanding) Sub: BIC...

    Hey everyone, so I am starting a theater from the ground up. I've installed the projector screen and seats and now am moving to sound design. To say I am a novice at this is an understatement and thank God for AVS or I'd have been completely lost. A couple of things to know. I will be...

    I had a pioneer vsx lsx303. Im thinking Denon 2700h but Im open to suggestions. I run a 5.1.2 configuration. I just got the lg 65 cx oled with some of the insurance dough at costco. I think I might arc to the receiver since the tvs processing is top tier.(good idea?). I will also use ps5 for BR...
