TX-SR506 Bi-Amping

My rear speakers no longer work under the "Normal Setting", unless Bi-Amping is selected, which is fine unless I want to engage my Zone 2, which does not work simultanously with Bi-amping.

How do I get my rear surround speakers to work again on the "Normal" setting?

thanks for the guidance!

If you select bi-amping the device will use a second amp for your rear speakers, this indicates that in your setup menu you probably have deleted the rears (set to None). Try to find the settings for your rear speaker in your setupmenu and see if they are selected in normal operation.
If all fails, see if you can reset teh device back to factory settings, sometimes software can get confused after using for a while. Resetting should than fix most problems.

You can also check and see if there is maybe a software update available for your device, loading and installing is explained in either the file or on manufacturers site.

It can be possible to bi-amp a pair of Klipsch RB-81 with this receiver for stereo listening, and if yes, how...


Bi-amping indicated that you have two amps, one for the tweeters, adn another for the woofer, in a two way system. If you don't have two seperate amps, you can use the speaker A & B outputs to run seperate speaker llines to each set of speaker inputs, but that will not be true bi-amping. Another alternative is to use jumpers to connect the speaker inputs together, this not needing seperate amps. Here's a link to the owner's manual:

Rear Speakers no Sound.


The rear speakers will only work when the Dolby signal processor or one of the 4 sound fields has been selected. In other words, the rear speakers won't "work" when listening in just Stereo, and this can happen if the "By-Pass" button on the front of the receiver has been engaged.

Buzzing/vibration noise from ONYKO TX-SR506 unit


If the unit is under warranty, DO NOT open it up. Bring it in for an exchange or warranty service. Explain that the unit makes noise during use and it will be serviced. This could be as simple as a bad connection in the power supply area and you are hearing oscillations or it could be a defective power transformer. Either case will be covered under warranty so there should be no charge to you.

Keep us posted.

Bi-Amping my speakers with HTR-5850


You can at a minimum, bi-wire your speakers by wiring the speakers with the A and B speaker outputs. The A speaker outputs end up running the tweeters and the B will end up powering the woofers.

Zone 2


I am sure this isn't it, but if all components are connected digitally Zone 2 won't work. It only allows analog connections, so anything attached via HDMI, etc. will not be able to be output to Zone 2.
