I have repaired many of these Denon receivers over the last few years.

Since the headphones work, that means if you dis-connect the speakers it will turn on and not go into protect (when power cuts off a few seconds after turning the unit on).

The most likely problem is a bad speaker. to find out which speaker is causing the problem, do this.

Start out with just one speaker connected and then turn on the unit. If it turns on and plays music, you know that speaker is good.
Now turn the unit off again and add another speaker and keep the first speaker connected. Once again, if the unit plays, that speaker is also good.

Keep doing this same procedure one speaker at a time. As soon as you connect a speaker and then try to turn on the unit and it goes into protect, the speaker you just connected is bad.

To confirm that this speaker is the bad speaker, dis-connect all speakers and only plug the suspected bad speaker into a speaker jack that worked with one of the other speakers.
If the unit still goes into protect you know then that you have found the bad speaker.

If the unit still goes into protect, that speaker is bad and you will need to take it in for repair or replace it.
make sure you use 8 ohm speakers. if i remember correctly these Denons can use 6 ohm speakers, but those are harder to find and most home speakers are 8 ohms.

If the unit does not go into protect and that suspected bad speaker plays in one of the other speaker jacks, what you really have is a bad channel in the amplifier, the channel that the suspected bad speaker was previously connected to.

If you find out you have a bad channel, you will need to take it in to an repair center. Preferably an authorized Denon service center. There are not very many of those around. I work at the only authorized Denon service center in the entire state of Michigan.

If I can be of more assistance, don't hesitate to ask. And a good rating is always appreciated. :)

It sounds like you have a bad speaker on the zone 2, or you have the speakers connected improperly.

When you engage the zone 2 a relay clicks and the speakers then become part of the amplifiers circuit.

If the problem was in the amplifier, it would go into protect mode without even having speakers connected to it.

If the speakers all check good, you most likely have the wrong type of speakers, meaning the impeadance is too low, or you have too many speakers connected to it.

On the back of the Denon, you will see right around the speaker output jacks, what ratings the speakers should be. If I remember correctly, it says 6 ohms or more when using only "A" or "B", and it says 12ohms or more for "A" + "B".

If you have two 8 ohm speakers on the same speaker jack you now have a 4 ohm load. That is below the ratings and can cause the amp to shut down (go into protect). Since your amp shuts down right away, I think you have a bad speaker or way too many speakers connected.

I have seen many times when people will connect 2 or 4 speakers to the one of the outputs that are designed for only 1 speakers.

If you are using too many speakers you will need a speaker distribution box. It has a resistor network built into it so the amp never sees a lower impeadance than what it is designed for.
You can connect 4, 6 or 8 speakers to one set of outputs designed for 2 speakers. You do loose a lot of power to the speakers, but it is better than blowing up your amplifier.

If I can be of any further help, let me know.

Well,i can tell you are not very focus,cause you posted Denon AVR-2807 with Bose AC 15 problem,but under your details,you put down AVR-5807!
First of all,it is so unfortunate that you are NOT able to gain and experience to true ability in sound for this wonderful receiver when you are using a dual tweeters speakers and expect to have good sound separation as a TWO WAY speakers(a tweeter and a midrange-for true high frequency and mid frequency sound separation.)
Secondly,you have defeated the audio configuration of the Denon AVR-2807,since all your speakers are control BY the Bose subwoofer.
Now,i could show you a way to hook this up,and it doesn't matter how you connect them, they are the "bicycle tires" installed with a "Porche"engine if you know what i mean.
If you want a good recommendation for your "beast",i will more than happy to show you the way!
Cheers,

SOURCE: Denon AVR 1609 Receiver Zone 2 has no sound

you have to change the power amp assignment to zone 2, you must also have Analog audio connections to the Denon from your devices.
Try this put your remote in the zone 2 mode, select tuner in zone 2 and turn zone 2 volume up to -10

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

Denon AVR-2105


If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?

Denon AVR 883 Audio glitch


More than likely the protector circuit is getting activated... You can't go below 6 ohms on the surround back which means you need 12 ohm or higher speakers for outside (since the two outputs for surround back/zone2 are in parallel). As a simple diagnostic test, disconnect one speaker and see if the sound survives longer than 2 seconds.

2 zone setup


Consult the user manual. If you don't have one, it can be downloaded free at Denon's website. Two of the speaker oututs serve multiple functions. Hookup and setup need to be checked. What you want to do is possible as long as you're only using a 5.1 setup indoors.
