    Hi folks, I just picked up this receiver at best buy the other day, and I think i'm all setup. My only HDMI input right now is my comcast box. The issue i'm having is that when I power everything on, the TV will display the SAT/cable video source, but there is no sound unless I switch the...

     I have the chance of buying the 840 for $315 or the 1040 for $420. I have Pioneer SP-FS52 LR, SP-BS22 rears and SP-C22 center. I will be adding 2 more SP-BS22's later. I am slowly building my setup as I see prices of what I want drop. Dual subs are on the list after receiver. Possibly SVS or...

    Bestbuy has the sony on sale now for $374. The cheapest I can find the Yamaha is $319. I plan to add the BIC 12" sub with pioneer Andrew Jones speakers. I'm not sold on cnet reviews... so is the Sony worth the additional $60? I will only use 5.1, not 7.2. And airplay and wireless are nice, but...

     Building a budget setup for the time being, however want to somewhat future proof the AVR for a better, 5.1 or 7.1/2 speaker setup a few years down the road when this system will be moved to a larger room requiring larger speakers.   For now, setup will be in a fairly small room, about...

     Hi all. Let me start out by saying, I am a complete novice about a Home Audio setup. I would like a budget system mainly movie/tv watching (60%) and music (40%). My living room (14'Lx11'Wx8'H) opens up to dining room (combined the two is 28'Lx11'Wx8'H). There also is a partitioned room along...

     I got the Sony STR-DN840 A/V receiver, but apparently only the American version of this product has Bluetooth, and the European version doesn't. I have, of course, the European version, and now I can't do what I initially intended - connect my Bluetooth headphones (Sony MDR-1RBT) to the...

     My Bose Lifestyle 12 Series II system died after almost 15 years. I am looking for a new system to replace it. It is in my living room that is about 24' by 18' ( the 18 is from the TV to the seating area). Looking back at this system i was not all that impressive I think I just got caught up...

     Hey all, first time in, nowhere else to turn... Picked this unit up for an astonishing $360 open box from Best Buy.  It's replacing a an ancient Denon AVR-1908 (2002 I think?) so I'm sure I'll be pleased.  The thing is, I'm reading about some pretty bad bugs/defects.  Also, I don't need dual...

    Hello all. So I have been researching receivers for my 7.1 theater in my basement and every time I get ready to pull the trigger on one, the price jumps! In the past 3 months I have been moments away from purchasing the Yamaha Rx v673, v575, Sony Str-dn840, & lastly the Pioneer Vsx-1023-k...

     I just bought a Sony STR-DN840 receiver. I will be buying speakers in a little while but in the mean time I will be using the speakers from my Panasonic SA-HT05 HTIB. I would like to know if there is a way to rewire the sub to use for this setup. The Panasonic system had a "receiver" that took...
