    Ahead of the discussion I have to mention that I do not watch television and purchase the 9.1 strictly for music. I have followed directions to a T. It is Ethernet cable connected and I use Chromecast Audio. The volume + and - does not work. The rear speakers are only a whisper! Calibration 1...

    Hello all. I'm new to this forum and thought I'd throw out an issue that I been having with my vintage avr-3600. Hopefully someone can help. The problem is that sometimes when I power it up the volume output is low across all channels. It's almost as if it's only putting out about half the power...

    Hi all, this might be a dumb question, but I just want to make sure. is it possible to play something on your HT that gives distortion even at low volume levels? obviously it would cause distortion at high levels, but i'm specifically asking about low volume levels. a type of sound from a low...
  6. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I was gifted this TV (Sharp Aquos LC-52LE810UN), and am having issues where the volume goes up and down on its own. The previous owner had this problem as well. I've tried doing a factory reset and firmware upgrade, but no luck. I changed the settings so that the built-in speakers are disabled...
  7. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hi, I have an HSU VTF-2 mk5 subwoofer. Recently, I noticed that when I adjust the volume from my phone or use the remote for the receiver (not when using the gain knob directly) it makes a low popping noise. The receiver is a Denon AVR-X2400H. I also notice that when the subwoofer is on it...

    Good Morning Everyone, I have a question about making some alterations to an existing Tannoy/announcement speaker system within a factory. At the moment there are 4no speakers throughout the factory which are wired back to a amplifier where the volume is controlled. Some of the employees of the...

    When buying speakers systems, AV enthusiasts rightly spend much time examining specifications in an effort to gauge what level of performance to expect once a new system is installed. Frequency response, sensitivity and power handling, if reported accurately, help inform decisions based on the...
  12. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi I have a Denon 4520 to which I have attached all the usual things, being TV, Phono, DVD, Media Player and it has a built in AM/FM radio that I have never been able to make work. When we watch a movie on, say Netflix or AppleTV, the people who make the movies record the dialogue at moderate...
  13. Soundbars
    I'm definitely not an audiophile & I don't have the space for a surround sound setup, so I generally use soundbars. I've currently got a Yamaha YAS-101 & a Yamaha YAS-105BLB, and neither of them have a DRC or Night mode (they just have 'clear voice'). While I know this is often disliked by...

    I had a Pioneer VSX-1022 and my turntable was hooked up into through a cheap Pre-Amp. It worked. I replaced the VSX with an SC-1223 (three years ago) and plugged in the turntable the same way. I could hear the record I was playing, but only at maximum volume, and turning down the volume made no...

I had 2 variants: a coil of wire that was simply sandwiched between a round baking tray and a neodymium fridge magnet (that was...

    Hey experts! Maybe someone could help me out on something that's driving me absolutely crazy? I just moved into a new house (yay!) and the previous owner did a terrific job IMHO installing a 5.1 system in the family room (double yay!). He was kind enough to leave his VSX-820 in place already...
  17. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hi all, I've searched but not found. You see, the remote for my Onkyo TX-NR509 is working great except for adjusting volume. I remember it working normally a couple of years ago but has gotten worse and worse. To get the receiver to change volume, I often have to find a certain off angle in...

    Hello, this is my first post. What a great community here. I recently purchased the following setup: Denon x1200w receiver, Bose 691 wall speakers, Bose 591 ceiling speakers, and SB-2000 subwoofer. My room is fairly small at about 15'x15'x8'. I hooked everything up for the first time and seems...

    I'm a music teacher who just moved into a new school and trying to get me students able to listen to music as part of the class. Problem is, the kenwood KR-A5060 receiver that has been used seems to be malfunctioning. It is currently setup with connections from a CD player, cassette player (old...
