You should adjustb it to what sounds good to you, as industry standards with a sound pressure meter says to start out at 0 db level. You should read this link and others at this other site. http://www.techlore.com/article/10037/

Channel 4 is 10 times louder than other channels why? all gains ect set the same nearly blew my speakers


Try swapping the input with another channel and see if the problem moves. Be sure to set the levels down or you may get your speakers this time. If the problem moves the source is the bad guy. If not check the gain setting, not the slider. The gain is normally the top know on the channel.

Audio problems


Click the link below for manual pages I mention to make changes:

http://www.harmankardon.com/resources/Brands/harmankardon/Products/ProductRelatedDocuments/en-US/OwnersManual/AVR1700_OM_EN.pdf

Most dialog sound comes from the center channel / speaker. If not working correctly, it make become difficult to hear people talking especially if there is a lot of other sound going on in movies and some music, too.

Check and adjust the volume level for the center channel or speaker. Check page 8 of the manual to learn how to use the remote to change the volume level of individual channels or speakers.

If you want, you may find it is a good idea to check page 17 to esablish correct volume levels for each channel by runnijng the set up with the microphone. This will allow the system to be "calibrated" for the room. This is a very important step in "getting the sound right".

If none of these suggestions work, you may have a problem with the center speaker itself - or with the amplifier for the center channel.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Check the speaker connections for the center channel. Page 6 shows the location on the rear of the amplifier - but check the speaker itself first as it is easier to get to and the rear of the amp is less likely to be distrubed and have a poor connection.

HI WHEN DOWNLOADING MY RECORDINGS TO MY DELL 1720 PC THE DOWN LOADED PRODUCT HAS HARDLY ANY VOLUME. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN WITH PRE-RECORDED MUSIC THAT I DOWNLOAD. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?


Ensure your Master output volume is at an acceptable level when recording. The machine will only save audio at the levels which it is recorded.

Also be sure to adjust levels accordingly when bouncing tracks down to one channel. I ussually prefer to set the EQ for these tracks to flat (or zero), as you will have much better results doing the EQ in final mix.

Problem with Yamaha Amplifier 361


volume levels on all channels varies depending on what dsp mode you are using. to be able to determine the level you desire, just chnge the level setting of those channels. either you do it by remote control or the front panel of the amp. try setting the dsp mode on disco and you should hear higher vol levels on all channels. Do not expect as well all channels to produce same vol levels as your effects speakers may not be able handle higher power levels.
