Question about Denon AVR-1508 Receiver

3 Answers

I want to get full surround sound out of my Denon AVR-1508 w/sub

I have a source hooked up via Digital Opitical (toslink) to the my Denon AVR-1508 and a 5.1 speaker system hooked up to that. My issue is that the only mode that seems to play the subwoofer is the DOLBY PLII CINE mode, and in that mode something seems wrong with the speakers, i.e. the vocals in music are coming from only the center speaker with the other music coming from the sides. This may seem ok, but I want to change that. In 5CH mode, the sound comes out properly from all the speakers, but the subwoofer doesn't play. Please help!

How do i connect sonos " control " to denon avr 300. Where are audio output on this denon?


The AVR-E300 doesn't have an audio output. It's a very basic AV receiver built down to a price.

Even if you has a better quality receiver, you still would only be able to port sound from analogue sources (ones connected via red & white RCA/phono) to the Sonos Connect for distribution around the rest of your home. AV receivers don't decode audio from HDMI sources to analogue stereo.

If you want to port sound, hook up a source direct to the Sonos Connect's audio input. Don't try going via the receiver.

Only red light is blinking on my denon avr 1508


It sounds like you overloaded the Denon avr with too much resistence from the speakers. Please check the total resistence of the speakers before you connect them all. Also check that the speakers or their wires are not shorted!

I'm trying to connect a Samsung HD LCD tv to a Denon AVR1508 receiver using HDMI cable so that the TV sound comes thru the receiver/speakers. which jack do I use (on both the tv and the receiver,


connect the hdmi to the tv (hdmi input 1) and to the receiver (hdmi output) you must make sure that the receiver input settings are assigned correctly. Then hook up all of your devices to the receiver. remember that the 1508 dosent do hdmi upconversion, so if you have any devices that are NOT hdmi, you need to run rca cables from the output of you receiver to the input of your tv. If you have any digital inputs coming out of your devices, i would recommend using them. your 1508 has two inputs that are assignable.
If all of your devices are hooked up to your receiver, and its hooked up to your tv properly, just turn down the sound on your tv, and turn up the volume on your denon!

No video on Denon 1508


Coax-2 is audio. Where's the video from the cable tuner coming into the Denon?

Why don you need the cable to pass video through the Denon on iuts way to the TV anyway? Interconnnects rarely add value.

I have my PS3 and TV hooked up to the HDMI ports. I have programmed the unit to show them under TV and DVD respectivly. When I change the source to TV or DVD, nothing shows up on my TV as expected


Sounds like you hooked them both up to HDMI input ports. Make sure that the PS3 is connected to an HDMI input port on the AVR-1508, and that the TV is connected to an HDMI output port (not an input).

No surround sound from my Denon 3805


well as long as all signals are routed through the Denon your on the right track, now what else you have to do is connect all devices to the reciever do not loop one device through another. Also you have to try the different surround fields to hear the one you like the best for music I use 5Ch stereo for movies the surround field varies based on the type of movie
