Question about Onkyo TX-NR801 Receiver

1 Answer

In THX mode, no sound from center channel

The center channel suddenly stopped working in THX mode (it is there, but almost completely inaudible) and is barely audible in other modes. I have swapped speakers and it appears to be a problem with the receiver. I have used the level calibration to raise the level of the center speaker. That helps in other modes, but in THX still pretty much nothing.

Does this sound like a hardware problem?

How to adjust front speaker level on vsx-d308 pioneer surround sound ?


Did you use to be able to turn up the front levels and now you can't?
Or is it the first time you have installed it?
If it previously did then clearly there is a fault.
However if not. Then like many receivers the front volume is simply controlled by the main volume control. If this is the case then you need to adjust the other channels to give you the best sound. The best way to do this is get one of those THX DVD discs. On the menu to the disc you will find a setting for setting up the sound THX screen. It will produce a test tone for each speaker. You then adjust it for the best sound quality. This way the sound field will sound great for your living room and Dolby movies will have you jumping out of your seat when an unexpected sound appears on the left channel and voices won't get drowned out by noises from the back.

How do you get the receiver volume and tv volume to stop working together at the same time?


It sounds like your TV is responding to the Denon remote. There may not be any way to stop it. I would just turn off the TV speakers and use the ones connected to the receiver. If you're using the TV speakers to make up for the lack of a center channel speaker on your receiver, it may be time to consider buying a good center channel speaker. The speakers provided in most modern flat panel TV's aren't very robust. The whole idea of having a receiver is to:

1. allow switching between various sources while using only one HDMI cable to connect to the TV.

2. Take advantage of surround sound in the 5.1, 7.1 channel mode receivers provide. When you have a good receiver connected to quality speakers and a good subwoofer you can really experience the music and sounds in a home theater environment.

I have seen this a lot of time on Yamahas, one of the channels are either a bit or a lot softer than the other, this happens after warrenty and you need to have it repaired.

Rear Surround speakers


Best thing to do is to put the unit in 5 channel or 7 channel mode. That will send left ch information to the front left and rear left speakers ( both will get the same information). Ditto with the right channel. The center channel will get centre channel information.

If all the speakers work, go out and rent TOP GUN. ( yes its old), BUT there are a few extreme scenes , one of which is the elevator scene, where the camera changes perspective and suddenly you hear the elevator doors close BEHIND you through only the surround speakers ( have the unit in surround mode....NOT 5 or 7 ch mode ). If this works ok, then you have no problems.

Remember, surround sound only produces information in the rear channels when the information is there. To check out the digital and DTS decoders, get an action flick. If you can, get a remote too, because that will unlock many features about the receiver that you cant get to with the front panel controls. Also go to yamaha and download the owners manual ( its free !!).....that should get you going.....

best of luck...

Center channel


Just to rule out the easy solutions, have you made sure no settings changed? Make sure that you didn't accidentally turn off any surround sound settings or turn off the center channel in the MCACC setup or the like (I have the VSX-D814, so your receiver should have MCACC as well). If you're sure no settings changed and the center channel should be working according to the receiver, then it would appear that the center channel amp went out in the receiver. You can either get a Pioneer service center to take a look at it, or if you're comfortable with electronics, I believe you can get the parts straight from Pioneer.
