Onkyo TX-SR606 bass treble settings seem to make no difference
Have tried multiple ways to set up new system, but it seems to make no difference in sound when I set the bass and treble settings to different levels. Using only 2 ceiling speakers, and Audyssey does not work either.
Re: Onkyo TX-SR606 bass treble settings seem to make no...
I ran into the same issue and was stumped at first. Then I noticed somehow I had changed the sound processing to "Direct" which meant the signal coming from the source was bypassing all of the control in the receiver. All I had to do is select another option (press stereo for example on the remote) and kick it out of the direct mode.

The reference to Zone 2 means that your Onkyo receiver is set to be remotely controlled from another location. Normally, this arrangement would be initiated at the time of set up but could be done later. You may have to repeat the initial set up routine to get things back to normal
Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.
The PS3 should default to the DOLBY DIGITAL sound output so your ONKYO should be setup to the Digital input, TV logic is a matrix similated multi-channel and I doubt if any PS software is in the DTS audio format, look at your game software disc`s and they will inform you of the audio capabilities.
If you're running an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver, best quality would be through the Dolby Digital, because that broadcasts in 7.1 HD Audio Format. There should be a way to get a default setting when the optical input is detected in your receiver.
Also, it could possibly the preout terminal itself that is not working. One way to prove that is by transferring the subwoofer cable from the preout and temporarily transfer it to the tape out section. If it ouputs sound from there, then that means the speaker and the cables are working fine and it's just the preout terminal itself that is not picking up anything. ^_^
I suspect that the speaker levels need to be set. You connected everything right - many people would not have connected the sats via the bass section (which has their high pass crossover and overload protection). But I am betting the HSU is turned up a bit on the high side.
Try this. Set all speakers to small, set all levels to 0. Play the receiver in stereo all mode. If the bass is strong, you need to turn the HSU down closer to a natural sound. Then use the speaker setup tone and adjust as needed.
In looking through the service manual for this model, I see a Tone Switch that allows you to bypass the tone circuits, and it may be the one all the way to the left of your front panel. If that's not it, I would get out the owners manual and see what they suggest. I doubt that you actually have an electronic malfunction with your unit.
