Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver

Denon AVF988 to power amp to whole house speakers

Please note: not AVR-3805 (site would not accept AVR-988, which I have.)

I'm having trouble understanding what connections to make. My goal is to be able to operate remote speakers either with or separately from the speakers in the family room (where the denon receiver is.)

I connected to Pre Out Zone 2 to power amp line in and speakers to the power amp. The main works but, not the remote.

Thanks for your hlep!

Jbell302, Check both remote spkers for operation from the A spks output if good, switch B remote spks to A main connect & main A spks to the B remote connection on the Denon spks outputs . Most amp sources do not like different ohm spks types & different cable or spks A-B. lenghts, because this makes up to resistances problems, making the amp to work harder & understanding what is going on. THE AMPS PROTECTION CIRCUIT IS AT ALERT & TRIES TO BALANCE THE RESISTANCE VOLUME. Best move is to try use the same spks. lenght & a higher qauge wire; 12.14.18qa. to better balance the output volume! All matching spks. pairs would help alot as well!

My Denon dvd-2910 does not play 5.1. It is connected to Denon AVR-3805. It plays just stereo. The center, back channels and subwoofer don't give any sound


Your Denon DVD-2910 produces left and right audio output. Your Denon AVR-3805 generates 5.1 channel output; therefore, 5.1 channel output may not have been selected or the AVR-3805 may be defective.

How i can connect my pc to denon receiver avr-3805


THAT would depend on the unspecified audio outputs of your PC. Access the controls for the Sound Card and make sure they're turned on and up, then cable whatever it has to something on the Denon that fits it. Neither device knows or cares that the other is anything more or less than a standard audio device or self-driven speaker set.

I have a Denon AVR 3805 receiver. It does not have a Main Amp in or a pre Amp out in the back. How do I properly hook up the Bose 901 equalizer to this receiver? I use the 901 speakers as surround...


By properly, you must mean WITH the Active EQ.

According to this picture, you're in luck BUT...

(Short answer from personal experience.)

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers. A good 100-wpc amp will do. (I like Carver)

Connect the Active EQ between the Front pre-outs and the amp input. Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

Helpful Hint: If you don't have sufficient between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn the 901's around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

I hv a Denon AVR 3805, i tried to set it up but after doing all the necessary, i found out that it was only running on 3 speakers (FL,FR & SW). I did connect the center speaker but the sound just...


SW means sub woofer, not necessary means center speaker in all receivers. Instead of setting 5ch stereo, if you have 3 speakers. try to set "3channel" or "simulated". If you own more than 3 speakers, you may refer to the user´s manual to correctly wire them to get the full sound.

Denon AVR-3805 zone 2 no longer working


time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals

now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).
