Echo when playing surround sound

I can only play the "pro-logic" or "3 way" to not get an echo. When I go with "theatre" or any other surround sound, I get an echo I cannot get out. I'm running this through my computer and a projector.

Re: Echo when playing surround sound

You want to adjust the "DELAY" setting on the receiver. The standard (default) delay setting is 20mS, which may need to be shortened if your speakers are well behind your listening position. In a proper setup, you should not detect a significant echo effect in surround programming (unless it is a purposely "echoey" scene). Also, make sure you don't have any of the "enhanced" DSP modes engaged -- some of these are quite echoey. if it has speaker set up, there should be a setting for distance. You might have it set close, so that by the time you hear the fronts, the rears should go. Try setting it farther each time until it sounds right. good luck

Can i use karaoke mic in harman avr 245 ?

No. The 245 doesn't have a microphone input. Besides, the speakers for a home surround sound system are a bit too delicate for the distortion levels generated by karaoke.

Here's a $300 speaker (yes, $300 for a single speaker) wrecked from teens doing karaoke. They then bust it more messing around trying to push the tweeter cone together so the crack wouldn't be so noticeable


If you still want to go ahead with the idea then you'll need some other bits of gear. For simplicity sake I'd recommend a karaoke CD+G player. It will have mic inputs, vocal echo, and take care of putting the works up on screen.

The alternative is a mixer with effects (echo, reverb) - Cheap is Behringer Xenyx 1202FX

and a source device for music and graphics. This could be your PC, but you'll then need to go trawling for karaoke files and you'll need some software to play them and do the words. Sax & Dotty is pretty good software.

The PC sound needs to be connected to the mixer in a stereo channel. The mic goes in mono on a mic channel. The output of the mixer goes to the AVR on an AUX input.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...

AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

Only Direct sound works good, and only two speakers

Some sound fields have reverberant effects that need adjusting so the levels become audible, such as in "stadium" mode. While playing one of these sound fields, navigate through the speaker setup menu and make adjustments to the "effects" percentage, and levels. Be aware however, that only in 4 channel stereo mode will your surround speakers produce sound 100% of the time. Also, in any form of Dolby Pro Logic mode you will hear more sound from the surround speakers originating from stereo source material than from monoaural material...example, a television station broadcast in stereo versus mono.

The indicator is telling you you have a 2-channel input. You may have the Blu-Ray connected wrong. Or the source is only Stereo. I need more details to assess that.

The sound coming from all speakers is normal if you have any surround mode selected, regardless of the characteristics of the source

I imagine if you experiment you might find all speakers playing for any number of 2-channel sources, not just Blu-Ray. Besides actual Pro Logic decoding, the various surround modes can provide some interesting effects on non Dolby Surround material.

I recommend that you try them all on various recordings and you may find one or another of them preferable over vanilla stereo. I find that any given artist or music type, even within a given CD, may sound 'better' with different surround settings.

The two rear speaker on 5.1 surround sound are working but produce no sound when played through only through the test. could u advise me on how to change the levels so that sound can be heard from all 5...

If you have diffrent mode's on your system like---
3ch,pro logic, and or live,hall pavilion,try setting them@pro logic first.then if you have DSP mode that increases the rear effect the higher the number the stronger the effect.

I have an Harman kardon receiver (avr 310) it only plays in left and rigth speaker with surround off . I try everything to make it work in other but it can't .

Surround only works from a surround source such as Pro Logic.
If you are useing a regular stereo source with surround off, the sound will come only from L/R speakers (and sub woofer if used)
