Plug your rear 5.1 speakers into the surround speaker connections. Be sure to use the AVR 1908 set up menu to set rear speakers (not an amp assign). Hope this helps.

In regard to my Marantz AV Surround Receiver, Model number SR5005, I cannot get the Zone2 speakers to play. I have followed all the instructions, and nothing works. Does anyone know what I need to do...


have the same model. just got it to work. but, struggling with one part. here's the scoop. 1. Plug your second zone speakers into the SURR BACK/AMP ASSIGN speaker outputs on the unit. 2. You need to "amp assign" the speakers to zone 2 by pressing AMP, MENU, select SPEAKER SETUP, AMP ASSIGN and scroll to ZONE 2 - this will force the sound to the speakers that you plugged in. 3 - Turn on Zone 2 (press Z2, press ON button on remote). Use the UP/DOWN arrows to select the input for Zone 2. I've only been successful in selecting USB and plugging my iphone in for zone 2. For some reason, I cannot get the SAT (cable box) to play in both zone 1 and zone 2 at the same time. But, I can get SAT in zone 1 and USB in zone 2. Hope that helps. Let me know if you can solve my issue...

The Denon does not play any source on the speakers, just on the headphone jack in the front. What could be the reason?


You might want to review the manual below:

http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-1908-OM-E_109.pdf

1) Make sure MASTER VOLUME is not set too low 2) MUTE should be OFF 3) Make sure nothing is plugged into the PHONES jack 4)Make sure the source program has a signal present - the inputs may not be connected to the selected source on the front panel (or try FM or AM for a source instead) 5) Check for proper connection at each of the speakers AND at the rear of the stereo. 6) Perform a microprocessor reset: a.Power the unit off, b. Press and release the "POWER" _while_ keeping both "Speaker A" and "Speaker B" buttons pressed. Once the display begins flashing in 1 second intervals, release both speaker buttons.

Hopefully, one of those steps will solve the issue. Please rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

Denon AVR-1908 speaker issue


Before we play taps and throw dirt on top of the Denon, perhaps a bit more triage is in order. I'm not certain who the patient is. Especially when you have "speaker issue" in the title. Are you saying there are some speakers that don't work ONLY with BluRay?

If it has NEVER worked the (unnamed) BD player or its cable(s) could be at fault, too.

What 'connections' are we talking about. HDMI, coaxial- or optical audio, 5.1 analog; to what input on the Denon assigned to what function?

Have you tried all audio paths out of the BD player? Is it configured to squawk in the right digital mode?

Do you have any other digital audio sources (CD/DVD) you could use to certify the audio paths that don't work with the BD player?

Can n ot get rear surrround speakers to work


On this reciever you have rear surround and rear back spkrs, if your using the surr back they have to be assigned if unassigned in the settings. If using rear surr spkrs change your surr field to 5ch stereo and your rear speakers will work.
There is no 7.5 unless you have 5 subs the 7 is the total number of speakers and the .1 is the number of subs in the system

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

I have a Denon 2308CI. I use the 7.1 suround. I have my sony STR DE995 to use as a second amp for zone two hook up. My goal is to watch a movie in the living room and listen to the radio or any other audio...


the mani surround room should be connected to the front speakers A, Center, sub pre-out and surround.
for the other two rooms connect them to surround/back, go into settings and in power amp assignment assign the surround back speakers to the multi room.
once this is complete with your remote in the zone2 control mode you can play your sources in zone2 and control the volume also, if you have inwall volume controls set the zone2 volume to -10 and use the room controls.
To listen to the same source in both zones you will have to select that source in both zones
