Question about Yamaha RX-V1600 Receiver
I plugged my turntable on this amplifier, but the sound, whether pure direct, on analog or straight mode, seems pretty flat, and not much bass is heard. on all other amps i've had i could always play with bass levels up to saturation point.. can't seem to do it on this product.. Also i don't want to plug a sub wfr in, just two speakers (130 wts RMS each, thought it would be enough) thanks a lot for help

If you are sure that the speaker wiring is correct and connections are good, then:

Your Yamaha RX-V1600 has an audio output transistors are mounted to a large heat sink which keeps
them cool during operation. They are electrically isolated from
touching the heat sink by an electrical insulating washer. But, in
order to keep them cool and allow for good thermal conductivity of the
heat generated by the output transistors the washers are treated with a
heat conducting grease. Over time this grease will dry out and lose
its heat conductivity ability allowing the temperature of the
transistors to rise; as the heat goes up they conduct more current and
cause the protection system to activate and shut the set down (in order
to avoid damage to the set).
You need to check or replace the transistor that's on the heat sink. Or you may contact a pro to replace it for you.

Hi! Transmitting doesn't mean it's working, What you should do to test it is use a good quality universal remote such as a Logitech Harmony and first program the preset code for your receiver into the Universal Remote. If that works, you know your OEM remote has gone bad, at least for those buttons. If it doesn't then you you should attempt to have your Universal Remote "learn" the IR signals from your receiver's remote If the controls still don't work, there is a problem with either your IR receiver on your receiver or the the circuitry that proceesses the signals into commands. Good Luck!

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.
The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.
In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).
Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.
The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.
EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.
In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? The rest would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that
