Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi ihave the philips wac700 and my speakers on the main unit are crackling, whether im listening to the radio, hd, or cddoes anyone know if these speakers can be repaired or replaced ? all the other stations are fine
It sounds like there is a problem with the differential circuit. The bias I am not sure about, as every unit is different. You should get the service manual to be sure or call Denon and see if they can give you an idea. Good Luck

4. Your volume settings are too low or muted. Increase your volume by pressing the + key located on top of the right satellite. You can also check your volume through the volume control located in the taskbar. To mute and unmute the speakers, press the + and - controls at the same time.

SOURCE: On screen display menu
I scratched my head over this for an hour. The manual says you can access the OSD from the unit, but I see no way to do this. From the remote, you have to select the "AMP" setting at the top of the input list. Then hit the OSD button. Assuming your monitor is set up correctly, this will bring up the On Screen Display. Then hit the "Menu" button also on the remote, and you can make your adjustments. Good luck!

Love your screen name.
You didn't say what, if anything, preceded the appearance of the problem. There might be a clue.
Can you describe the distortion? Is it excessively bassy? If so, is it happening on all sources?
I'm assuming this is a modern digital receiver that is capable of many soundfield simulations as well as native Dolby Digital, DTS, multi-channel. If so we can use a stereo source and through simulation redirect some of it to the center speaker.
Using one of your receiver's many multi-channel simulation modes, put in a CD or tune an FM station and use it to diagnose the problem during later steps.
If it's only a single source and that source uses individual analog channel RCA cables, swap in another one or temporarily move the Center Channel feed to one of the other channels to see if it's before the receiver (in the source).or inside the receiver.
For multiple sources:
Is your Center speaker defined properly as Large or Small in the receiver's setup menu?The size refers mostly to the bass-handling capacities of all your speakers rather than their physical size. Speakers designated as 'Small' will not be sent much in the way of bass because they can't handle it well. The LFE/subwoofer channel(s) will get all the bass that was intended for them instead.
If you have a Small speaker improperly defined as Large it may be getting bass that it can't handle and that might sound like distortion. Having a Large speaker defiend as Small would result in less bass than expected but otherwise 'clean' sound.
Check the speaker setup in the menu for excessive volume level relative to the others. There is usually a calibration procedure the receiver will use to help you adjust the subjective voume of each speaker using white noise or tones.
Hope this helps.
