I am available as a sound system designer.  Your request is a bit simple.  Given the complexity of the situation there are way too many factors involved to give a simple one or two paragraph solution.    Installing a sound system involves several areas of expertise.    1. Acoustic analysis of the venue. 2. Analysis of the electrical system. 3. Budget! 4. Procurement. 5. Rigging 6. Operation and maintenance protocols.      Fixya is an advise site for do it yourself solutions.  If you want advise. My advise is to find a consultant, pay them to give you a sound system design, buy the equipment new or second hand. Hire a competent sound engineer, carpenter, rigger, licensed electrician who can build and install your PA in your venue.  Best of Luck!

Please don't panic and think that there is anything wrong with your Yamaha receiver. A lot of people are having this problem with set top box reception. Time lag / phase differences caused by satellite transmission can make your Receivers digital decoders go nuts !!!.The working principal is too complex to explain on this page. I have had clients call up and say on some channels only one speaker works in a 5.1 setup !!!!.You noticed DD and DTS signals are working fine.

No vocal or very distant vocal, just music on my itouch


Since you didn't list the brand name or model - I can only give some generic help.

The problem sounds like a "sound profile" mismatch on a system that has some sort of surround audio speaker set up. One example of a mismatch is (there are plenty of other, too): Your itouch has only a left and right (stereo) output and you might have the system trying provide some sort of dolby digital effect (theater, adventure movie, etc.) applied to it. Since it is lacking the expected input signal (center, rear left & right) - some audio info is lost.

Solution: Nothing is broken - you just need to cycle through the sound profiles on the system to locate the the one that restores the lost audio signals. Note which one is currently selected before starting - so you can return to it when done. You'll have to change the sound profile whenever selecting the itouch sound source.

If this is too generic - reply with your shelf system manufacturer's name and model number. Then we can dig deeper.

I hope this was helpful!

Feedback issues during live band performances


This is clearly a microphone problem. You need to review your mics and use a suitable type. Ensure the speakers are not aimed at the mics too.

No sound for *some* blu ray discs / can't get a menu


Some blu ray disc play fine. Others play the menu music, but when the feature starts, the sound disappears completely. And then others don't play music at all, no sound what do ever.

When playing a dolby true hd soundtrack my Onkyo 875 makes a clicking sound every so often like it has run out of buffer memery for the sound. Any help you could give me would be great Thanks


What you are hearing is digital noise that can have many sources. One thing that would help to narrow this down is to try and see a pattern of when the clicking occurs. Is is all the time, or just after the unit has been on for a while? Does the clicking vary with the type of sound? Soft/loud/vocal/music etc?

Thanks,
Dan
