We had this receiver for a little while and we just bought new speakers. (Bose) It worked for a little while and then it shuts itself off. We moved the speakers to another receiver and they work fine. The KHL receiver now only says check speaker. Any suggestions

Probably a shorted amp. Turn it on with no speakers hooked up, if it still says check speakers,it will need service (output transistors and a couple of resistors) A few times I've seen them only need soldering of an emmittor resistor.

Automatic muting turns sound off

fijate well in output impedance, which is correct and coupled to the speakers not less, because it causes protection to the team after that can work well.

I just bought a new Samsung TV. I cannot get the TV audio to come through the Bose speakers using RCA (red and white connectors) cables. What can I do?

Since you do not specify which Bose speakers you have, I will assume they are not self-powered but require an amp. The RCA connectors are what's known as "line level" meaning they are meant to drive an amp or receiver but NOT a speaker.
IF the speakers are self-powered, then you need to assure that you are connecting to the LINE OUT of the TV (rather than some inputs).

What receiver would do a good job on my bose accoustimass 10 series speakers

almost any model from Denon's new lineup.

here is a link to Denon

I have a 4310ci they retail for $1999.00 but I bought mine for $1299

A good rule of thumb is your receiver and your speakers should cost about the same.

other brands are:
Yamaha = pretty good
Onkyo = high failure rate
Sony = good quality but so so sound
Integra = same as Onkyo
Marantz = ok sound but so so quality

I should probably not point out that most Audiophiles look down upon the Bose corporation.

Bose was the first to introduce the satellite / subwoofer system to the market back in the early 80's and has a big presence in professional audio. However their design does not produce neither crisp highs nor substantial lows. the basics of audio are that sound is produced by moving air, the more air you move the more sound. Bose has definitly found a way to "cheat" by utilizing both forward and rearward motion of the cone by encosing it in their " accoustimass" module but many of the frequencies required for true clarity are merely lost due to the drivers inability to create them.

If you choose a receiver such as one from the Denon line they have a feature called "Audyssey" Audyssey uses a microphone to calculate room acoustics as well as to apply equalization to help make up for what the speaker isn't producing enough of.

Now usually when you disrespect Bose you always get someone upset and having sold Bose myself for YEARS I would only argue take a grill off. Instead of a high quality tweeter or woofer you will generally find a cheap paper component.

There is a purpose to me going off in a tangent about Bose. IF you are considering replacing your receiver because you feel that its not driving the speakers to your liking or maybe isn't "clear" enough then unfortunately my diagnosis isn't that you need a more powerful receiver but better speakers.

The purpose of upgrading a receiver should be more to get updated surround processing, better video distribution, multi room audio video etc..Unfortunatly unless you are trading up from a 80's low end: Pioneer, Technics, Kenwood, Sherwood or Sony the sound improvement won't be that great.

Sorry but hope that helps

Better sound through bose speakers?

If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

Receiver Sr5200 shut down in 5.1 mode

chances are you have the volume too loud and the speaker wires are crossed.
all speaker wires need to be with the positive on the right and negative on the left if you have them anywhichway than it will work on low volume and not a very good sound.
look closely at the wires and they should have a red or so color on one side or the wire jacket itself will have a round side and a flat side

Onkyo 705 receiver shuts off at higher volumes

I had this same problem and it turned out to be a twisted kink in the speaker wire. Run a sound check to each speaker separately (from your receiver menu) and turn each one up until the receiver shuts off. Check the wire to the speaker that caused it to shut off and make sure the +- ends are not touching each other at either end, and that there are no twists or kinks along the way.

"Check Speaker Wire" error on my Yamaha Receiver

found the source of the problem with "Check SP Wires"! to solve it is necessary to check each speaker connected to the device Yamaha on the rear panel (red and black) using the device for determining the number of ohms, which shall not be less than 4 ohms, in large passive speakers experienced in Amfitone AU-027, the result showed that left at 0.45 (7) ohms, and the right-hand column, as such, no.
The successful test ... and good music!
