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???

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
