Question about Sony STR-DB930 Receiver

1 Answer

Sony STRDB 930

I know this machine is old but I love it and it works great with my Bose Acoustimass speakers. However I have had a problem with the display for a while. Sometimes it comes on and then goes off and other times it does not show at all. Although this does not affect the performance it would be nice to know if this is something that I can resolve at home? Any input greatly appreciated.

Re: Sony STRDB 930

Hello, one of the possibble cause could be the so called bad (cold) soldering in display area. If you have some technical background maybe you can do it at home. Otherwise please call the pro. If you need more help please advice

Better sound through bose speakers?

If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

Sony STR-DG810 w/ Bose Acoustimass 10

Try this:
Go into the menu settings by pressing "Receiver" --> "6-Video" --> "HDMI Audio" select "Amp," not "Amp+TV"
Yeah, it makes total sense to have a very important audio setting in the video menu.
