Question about Onkyo TX-NR905 Receiver

1 Answer

Low Volume regardless of input

I attempted to install my new TX NR905 last night, and upon supposed completion I observed that the speaker volume seems very low (I have only connected R & L Fronts). I have Paradigm Monitor 9's (year 2000) and have connected them utilizing the bi-amp configuration. Whether I've selected CD, DVD, or Satellite/Cbl Box, I turn the volume to MAX (+18dB) and it seems to be the equivilent of my old Sony Reciever at about 30% volume. I did program the receiver to run in Bi-Amp mode, and set the impedance to 6+OHM. (the speakers are 8 OHM). I assumed that I would finally be able to upset the neighbors with this new receiver - What am I missing???

NR626 - no sound


If none of your speakers gives any sound, perhaps you pressed the mute button on the remote control?
Make sure you have a source selected, that will give sound. Choose a low volume, before switching anything. You can destroy your speakers, when switching on with full volume.
If some speakers work, and only the surround does not work. check if you have surround sound as input. If you only feed 2 channels you can't expect to hear more than 2 channels.

Subwoofer makes noise like an untuned TV regardless of volume knob


I would suggest your crossover unit has failed in the speaker cabinet. The crossover circuit board separates the low and high frequency content of your stereos audio signal. The low frequencies go to the bass unit (woofer) and the high frequencies go to the tweeter speaker. If the capacitor on the crossover goes open or near open circuit then noise is introduced into the sound system. Replace either the capacitor or crossover unit.

Onkyo tx-sr503 volume too low


If the volume is too low on all inputs, even when you turn up the volume, first turn down the volume completely and check to see if you have a tape monitor button pushed in. If you do, disengage the button, then turn the volume back up. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Semantics maybe, but sources are INputs. OUTputs are speakers, audio to other devices.

A DVD is always an INPUT.

So what's different? IOW, how are the DVD and Projector (Really? It uses a video OUTput) connected for audio? Have you looked at the manuals? Digital sources must be assigned, for example.

If I understand you, you're observing the speaker cone moving in one direction without any input. That would say the internal amp is malfunctioning and pushing DC to the speaker. Beyond that I can't say, but it is endangering the driver.

VERY LOW VOLUME FROM SORROUND SPEEKERs


some surround sounds do not put out loud sounds except from the front speakers only. Try using different inputs to see if it makes a difference.

Onkyo TX-NR905 Protection Circuit Activated


The problem is not with the inputs. This unit is in protect because a problem has been detected in the output section. Try disconnecting the speaker wires and turning it on. If the unit remains on, there is a short in one of the speaker wires. If the unit still shuts down, there is an internal problem that will require repair. It sounds like this is a new piece. If so, it should be covered under warranty.

Keep us posted,

Volume on my Onkyo Receiver


Yes it is. I have the 705. My room mate has the 605. Both AVR's will not have appreciable volume until 50 on the dial.
The dial in not linear. I don't know of anyone who has plotted the scaling of the volume control yet.
I have found much useful user info on avsforum.com. Owners post Q&A based on experiences.
Search the forum for "official onkyo TX-SR605" thread.
Some comparable info may also be found under the "official onkyo TX-SR705".

Rear Speaker volume too low


Channel level output can be adjusted in the menu if you have the remote. Set the rear channel level volume higher and the fronts lower if need be, and then turn up the volume. Enjoy!
