Question about Onkyo Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have an older model Onkyo TX-844 audio receiver. It does a great job of powering some used Ohm Walsh 2 speakers I just got on eBay. However, when I turn on the receiver, the left channel always fails to work. I have to wiggle the volume knob for 10-15 seconds with the power on, and then it will suddenly fire up and work until the receiver is shut off for a day or two. Then the problem reoccurs.

Either the control has a problem internally or there are bad solder connections where the control meets the PC board. This is a simple repair for any service shop.

I have onkyo reciever tx-ds898 no sound


Some receivers shut down automatically if a thermal overload is detected or more commonly if speaker impedance is less than specified, i.e, driving a 2 ohm impedance speaker with an output rated for 8 ohms. If you can get the receiver operating long enough, you may see a message indicating why it is shutting down

Hi lechap,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008 as per his last post Feb 13.....

If I figure your concerns right, they are:
1. You have an iPod on an Onkyo IPod dock that you want to connect to an Onkyo receiver TX-302;
2. You have an Onkyo receiver TX-302 that you want to power a set of Bose Cinemate speakers;
3. the connectors on some do not fit or are not the same;
4. you want to know what goes to where.

If I may suggest:
a. connect the L/R Audio Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the L/R Audio IN of VIDEO 1 using a pair of RCA to RCA cable. Connect the S Video Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the Video IN of VIDEO 1 using an S Video to RCA Video cable. Thereafter if you want to watch a movie or play music from your iPod, you need to choose Video 1 in the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You can of course choose any other VIDEO 1~3;572fcdc.jpg34ab5d3.jpg

b. all other source/devices may be connected similarly using the same scheme on any of the free VIDEO / AUDIO inputs
c. of course the MONITOR OUT goes to your TV or projector.

With respect to the Bose Cinemate, it would not be technically correct to connect the Bose Cinemate speakers straight to the speaker out of the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You need to install another set of speakers to the speaker outs of the Onkyo receiver. The Bose Cinamate system's TV AUDIO could be connected to the TAPE OUT (or the AUDIO L/R OUT of VIDEO 1)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

ONKYO tx-sr605 HDMI CHANNEL 2 INTERMITTENTLY SWITCHES TO STANDBY


Check the Ohm value (4, 8, 16...) on the speaker and on the ONKYO too.
If not the same that is the (big) problem!

ONKYO TX-DS484: \r\nI am not getting any sound out of my left speaker on stereo. I cannot find a balance adjustment. I do not have the remote control. Thanks


It sounds like you also need the manual.

The remote is an RC-4278. You WILL need it.

$25.10 on eBay expiring tonight so jump on it. 3h 35m 40s (Sep 06, 201120:16:46 PDT)

As far as the left speaker goes, swap it to decide if it's the speaker, wire or the amp channel. There are no control settings that would make one of the front pair go silent.

Hi, this is not really a problem. I have an Onkyo TX-SR604 receiver. I had polkaudio speakers RTi8 speakers that are no longer working properly. I am looking for recommendations for new speakers that can...


A receiver with the specs...

* "90 watts minimum continuous power per channel, 8 ohm loads, 2 channels driven from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with a maximum total harmonic distortion of 0.08%"

(*) The only acceptable statement of its power bandwidth in the manual.

... when fed an undistorted audio signal, used properly and not driven abto clipping is not particularly dangerous to any reputable speaker.

Driving any amplifier, even a modest one, into high distortion is more dangerous to any speaker than a high-powered amp pumping pure undistorted power.

Choose any speakers but low efficiency models if you want loud and clean sound.

Onkyo tx-sr601 bi wire with zone 2


SMCCARTY,
The idea behind bi-wiring speakers is to get the highest quality of sound by getting the sound from two separate sources doing separate jobs. Lower frequencies are harder for an amplifier to produce than higher frequencies. So it is common to give these frequencies to two different amplifiers so each can produce the highest quality of sound. By removing the low end from the top end amplifier, it provides the top end amp more headroom thus reducing the chances of clipping. Clipping can easily be heard from the tweeters destoying not only the sound but your speakers as well. It is common practice in pro and car audio to use separate amps for subbass, low, mid and high; four amps working together to their corresponding drivers (more or less depending on the system and type of audio being produced).

In your case, getting the two different sources from basically the same amp (power supply), would not accomplish the full intent of bi-wiring; it would just make more wiring for the same end result. However still a good thought on your end. Onkyo receivers are great because of their beefy power supplies. Not very many other brands have such strong power supplies. Denon's are close but not equal.
