Hi,It sounds like you have a burned out amp,or Ir board,Which could be repaired at a local Tv or radio repair shop.
But since the Acoustic solution website has been shut down since 2006,I don't know of any way to contact them or get a manual or any other info.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, since there are no other forms of control for the DS833, possibilities then are limited to:

  • unplug the unit for an extended period of time. Normally, this would revert the unit back to factory defaults;
  • replace the remote's batteries. It may be necessary to clean/scrape the battery contacts to ensure a more pressure to the battery terminals;
  • at times, the remotes keys/buttons tend to be fault. Open the remote and clean the pads underneath the keypad. Cottonbuds and alcohol would be sufficient to;
  • internal fault on the logic/switching circuitry of the DS8333. Familiarity with electronic circuitry & components is required to effect repairs/diagnosis. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of q a qualified professional.
Pls post back updates. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

When you check the batteries that was without a load on the batteries. replace it with a fresh battery and try it again.

Why won't my left speaker work on the acoustic solutions surround sound


Check that all wires are making good connections. Unplug them all and then replug them. Worst case scenario, could be a bad output transistor or other internal electronic component.

you are using a stereo speaker so definitely you won't get surround sound, Most TV may have either RCA or 3.5mm headphone jack type, both serve the same function, what you need to do is just use a convertor check from this link.

Can Acoustic Research wirless speakers be used for surround?


yeah, I looked it up on thier website. Here is what they say.

Warning: This product is designed to work with line level outputs or headphone outputs only.

DO NOT connect it directly to speaker outputs as it will permanently damage the transmitter.


You can use these as surround speakers if you like. You just need a line level surround output on the receiver. Most high end receivers have this feature but, you may only have speaker level outputs.

If that is your case the only option you have is to use a "speaker to line level adapter".... http://www.crutchfield.com/p_543ADP12/Russound-ADP-1-2-Speaker-level-to-Line-level-Adapter.html?tp=9070

Now crutchfield.com is always a little high on prices but if you look around I have seen them around $10 online.

Good luck with your project.

Run a phono cable from the tv output to a input on your system,select this input and you should have sound,if not go to tv menu for sound set up as some tv,s need the output turned up or even to be switched on.

Sound problem


Hi,

I have a creative SoundBlaster LIVE! 24 Bit External Sound Card and this annoyed me for weeks.

depending on your surround sound reciever depends on the solution.

i have an Acoustic Solutions surround sound system with coxial and optical inputs, aswell as stereo red & white jack inputs.

not knowing the method or connection your using makes it difficult to give you a single solution so i'll list a few.

The soundblaster software shoudl include the Creative Audio console with all sorts of effects, one is CMSS (CMSS-3D) Stereo widening which is still stereo but gives a surround sound effect.. but i'm guessing you payed for 5.1 and you want 5.1 onto the next part

5.1 surround sound can only be produced when the actuall audio your playing contains 5 channels of audio, for example you cant play a stereo song in 5.1 surround sound without some sort of hardware or software sound manipulation. Luckily my surround sound system has Pro Logic II built in and some other effects which convert a 2.1 signal to a 5.1 signal and it works brilliantly. I'm not sure of a software alternative.

setup for your soundcard will be different under XP and Vista also, but there should be a properties option for your sound device where you can select your speaker setup such as headphones, built in speakers, 2.1 speakers, 5.1 speakers, 7.1 speakers and you should be able to manage this from the creative software.

If using Coxial / Optical or SPDIF under vista you MUST set the playback device as SPDIF, at least you have to with my sound card and drivers and seems to be a limitation of the actual sound card drivers for vista.

Personally i was looking forward to hearing the windows login melody in 5.1 surround sound too, but this doesnt happen.

Infact i find that almost all programs bar a few will not play Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 surround sound via any or my output options hence the next solution..

if you have the 5.1 sound but winamp simply just plays it in stereo try the following.

You need to use DirectSound Output:

Preferences (Ctrl-P) > Plug-ins > Output > Select "DirectSound Output"

That should work in most cases, but if not, then:

Checkmark: "Allow hardware acceleration" in DirectSound Output config,
and make sure your sound card/chip is selected as Output Device.

Note that any changes will take effect only after playback is restarted.
In some cases, a Winamp restart is required.

If that doesn't work make sure you have the latest version of DirectX
(v8.x or higher is required)

Winamp 5.25/5.3 and higher:
For actual multi-channel files (ie. aac/wav/ac3/ogg/wma files encoded in 5.1ch surround, as opposed to standard 2-channel stereo mp3's), you need to checkmark "Allow surround sound" in 'Winamp > Prefs > Playback' for the music to play in its original 5.1 channel format (Note that this setting is checkmarked by default).

Windows Vista:
In addition to the above instructions, Vista users will also need to go to:
Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab > Speakers > Configure:
Select: 5.1/7.1 Surround.
Then:
Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab > Speakers > Properties > Enhancements tab
and checkmark "Speaker Fill"

Hope this helps
