If it is me and I am spending that kind of money, it is going to be sick, os here is sick. 7.1 dolby surround and 1080P HDMI, 135W per channel, and right now if you go to FRYS.com, it is normally $500.00 bt for right now it is only $449.00. But if you put this in, be prepared to buy a PS/3 as your next investment (Th best way to get Blu-RaY at an affordable price, plus many other features) and an upconvert DVD layer, which is only about $100.00 or less today. Then you better get ready to hear from your neighbors and the cops, because they are going to think a war has broken out in your place. Enjoy, I play movies that the sound is just so realistic, I hate to leave the house anymore. Also, remember, speaker placement is key, so know the optimal environment for your system and if you need one, I may be able to hook you up with a system room tuning DVD for next to nothing. This will allow you to setup your system and place your speakers optimally for your environment. good Luck.

How do I get the sound from my TV to play through this system?


Most audio receivers have types and several inputs available . The TV will likely have only two types. One will be the standard Red and White RCA connectors. Others may not have the RCA but a 2.5 mm headset connector. Some TV's will have an optical link connection. And a few will have a digital connection. The digital is a single RCA type connector but of a much better quality than the vintage.

The digital and optical; are the highest quality and would be the first choice for best audio/surround/Dolby. The RCA Red and White is next. The 2.5 mm headset is the least desirable.

Some receivers are programmable for the optical and digital inputs. You would need to reference the receiver manuals to determine the setup. The default setup will work but a little trial and error may be required to determine what input goes to what device. ie the DVD might be connected to the TV input (can be a little confusing)?

After connecting the best quality output of the TV into the receiver it is necessary to go into the TV setup menu to turn off the TV internal speakers and I would set the audio output to fixed. The variable output setting can be confusing where both the receiver and TV can set the volume.. The volume will now be set where the receiver can control the volume and not the TV,

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:

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

The sound is really low if i press the aux tape cd phono or vcr the sound is there but really low


Instructions:
Evaluate your current receiver. Take a look at the back-panel connections to make sure you don't have a phono input. In most cases, the phono input will be clearly marked. If the connections are not marked, look for a set of RCA-style inputs with a grounding screw next to them; this is a phono input. If there isn't a phono input on your receiver, see if you have an open set of RCA inputs. If they are all occupied by other equipment, you can disconnect one piece of equipment, buy an A/V switcher or get a new receiver--preferably one with a phono input.
2 Purchase a phono preamp. The voltage output of a turntable is much lower than those of other peripheral devices, including CD players, tape decks and game systems. Although the inputs look the same, connecting a turntable to a standard RCA audio input will result in very faint sound output, if you hear anything at all. The output of your turntable must be amplified to a level of about 150 millivolts (mVs) before it reaches the receiver, so a turntable "pre-amplifier" or phono preamp is necessary.
3. Purchase patch cables. You'll need a set to run from the preamp to your receiver. Measure how long your cables need to be, and purchase accordingly. Resist the temptation to "go cheap," because better-quality cables will provide better sound.
4. Connect the preamp into the system. First plug the preamp into an AC power outlet. Most models have a small AC-to-DC adapter built into the plug. Then connect the cables from the turntable to the preamp, and connect your new patch cables from the preamp to the receiver.
5. Adjust the gain of the phono preamp. Most models have a gain control for fine-tuning. Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer and adjust your system accordingly.

I think my receiver just blew. hissing noise from all speakers, now i get no sound - but the display still works...help


unplug the receiver, Everything- speakers, input/outputs. The only cord to the device left should be the power cord.
Power up the receiver, set the tuner on a strong station. check sound quality with headphones only.
If that was ok, now pick one speaker to test all channels with. Follow the procedure above with the
speaker. check each output channel with the tuner as a source using the one speaker. Good Luck!

I'm having a problem with sound from a Marantz SR48 MKII. I have a pair of Klipsch monitors connected to the "system 1" outputs on the Marantz and a Polk PSW100 connected to the "system...


I'd say you DO need to evaluate how the PSW is attached. I can't find the specific manual for it but the prescribed way for most subs that accept speaker level inputs (and HAVE speaker level output terminals) is run one pair of speaker outputs from the receiver to the sub and daisy-chain the Klipsh speakers from the sub.

Cant get klipsch sub woofer to work. do is there a menu setting through receiver to do this?


What model is the sub? Is your Klipsch sub powered? If it's already plugged in and powered on make sure you have the RCA cable going to the correct LFE output on the Denon and have it set to 5.1.

Have 1 subwoffer need to hook it up to a 2 channel input


I must assume that you have a "Sub" output from the receiver that you are using. If this is a dedicated Subwoofer that doesn't have it's own power, you are set, all you need to do is use an RCA cable from the Receiver to the Sub. If this is a dedicated Sub without power you will need an appropriate power amplifier to amplify the signal to the Sub. If this is only one Sub you may search for a Mono Amplifier to save money in your search. The connection from the Receiver to the Amp is the same and from the Amp to the Sub is with a wire that is usually 18 Gauge "Zip cord" unless the Sub has it's own cabling. Place the sub in a corner to maximize the power output and move it away from the corner to smooth the output until you like the way the sound works with the main speakers. If it is too loud or too soft most A/V Receivers provide a way to adjust the volume of the Sub. Enjoy the sound when you get it setup the way you like it but don't blow out the neighbors.

Max. wattage for speakers w/ Technics Receiver SA-GX100?


I too have a Technics SA-GX100 and it's rated at 2 x 40W @ 8 Ohms. I have the Technics SB-2840 floor model speakers hooked to it, which are rated at 200W Music Input - 8 ohms. It sounds very nice just to be a 40W receiver.

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers


Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.
