Question about Sony STR-DE585 Receiver

1 Answer

No voice audio

I have a Sony receiver STR DE 585 hooked to two speakers and a subwoofer. By the manual, page 25, to listen t 2 channel sources using front and left speakers and subwoofer, press A.DEC to select AUTO.DEC. When we do that, we hear occassional voices but most of the time we hear all the audio except the voices.
(using coaxial cable ). Any suggestions?

Have you selected coax mode with the input button?. If so you may need to play around with the setup buttons. Can't give anymore advice as I've lost my manual. Good luck

How do I adjust the treble and bass on sony str-dh520?


See EQ Mode on page 59 of the owners manual to set the bass and treble for the front speakers, presumably for 2 channel mode. For multi-channel mode there are several pre-programmed audio modes listed starting on page 43 and music mode starting on page 44.

I have a Sony STR-DE597 FM/AM Receiver .It has audio out plug and i have a Jensen js650 100 watt Subwoofer. how can i hook them up? Thanks.


The Jensen JS650 does not accept line level input so you need to use the Front B speaker output from your Sony receiver and not the RCA subwoofer output. Even though your subwoofer is active, it does not support line level (RCA) signals.

Just connect the subwoofer as you would a pair of speakers. Once connected, you make sure the front panel speaker switch on the Sony is set to A+B so you get sound from your existing speakers (A) and subwoofer (B).

I hope that works for you.

No sound when hooking receiver to subwoofer using standard red RCA cable. Do I need a subwoofer cable?? I have turned my tuner subwoofer to YES, powered up receiver and subwoofer but nothing.


Probably not if it takes RCA input, but the receiver needs to be informed of the sub's presence and hw you want to share low frequencies among the rest of the speakers and itself. Then you need to set the relative levels using test tones, which also proves the sub works.

HOW CAN I HOOK UP CAVILIER 200A POWER AMP TO A sony str av 770x f


You can pull the Left and Right stereo program from either MD/Tape or Video 2 Audio OUTputs. Run a pair of RCA cables to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to the Cavalier's Line IN.

If the Tape output you're borrowing the program from is already connected to something, use RCA-cable splitters.

Remember to NEVER activate the monitor for that Tape function during playback of any digital audio source - it disables the digital input; or if the 901's are being used - it will remove the signal to the Cavalier.

Now if you wanted to use the 901's in your movie listening this will work with two limitations

Your receiver doesn't have preamp outputs for Front Left and Right out so you'd be extracting only the mixed-down 2-channel version of whatever the Sony is processing.

You'll have to manually control the Cavalier's volume because the pre-out you're using is BEFORE the Sony's volume control.

It might still be an improvement over what you have now.

I can't get the speaker B option selected on my Sony STR DH800 7.1-Channel Audio Video Receiver


If you're using the terminals for Surround Back (7.1) there is no Speaker B option.

See the notes on page 19 of the manual.

5.1 Surround sound not working


Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps
