Question about Cambridge Audio Azur 540R Receiver

Open Question

Memory When I turn my unit off and turn it on later, it forgets what speakers were hooked up to it. It thinks there is no center speaker, and it thinks that the main speakers are small. Rarely, it forgets about the rear surround speakers but most of the time it knows they are there. It works fine if I go to the speaker setup and tell it that the front are large and that the middle exists, but I'm tired of doing that each time I use the unit. Of course I've tried the reset button, leaving it unplugged for a while, etc. I haven't left it powered off for weeks at a time though. Does anybody know what could cause it? All the company would say is "take it for repair."

Hooked to surround sound, two front speakers, 4 wall speakers, 1 sub woofer. Restart unit and reduce volume unit is OK but normal talking is too low.


Voice tracks are usually routed to the center channel. You don't mention having a center channel speaker hooked up. If this is the case, then you need to go into the receivers setup menu and set it for no center. This will reroute the voice tracks to your front speakers.

How do I get this system working properly again?


Here's what I would do:

1) Wherever you get sound, hook up each speaker in turn to validate they are working. If you have another, known working system to do this with, even better.

2) While testing your speakers on the known good system, once a speaker has been proven working, validate that your sound source (and cable) is working by using it as a source once everything else has been validated.

3) Now that you've isolated and proven everything but the receiver, put the receiver in stereo mode and try it out as a simple left/right amp. Once you get this far you will be able to do the surround stuff, but only with a surround encoded (ex: AC3) data stream.

If you need more help, just ask.

Rear speakers are dead, never got them to work. Changed front to back and rears work so speakers and wireing are good. Is it possible that because I did not hook up a center speaker this is the problem?


if its a 5.1 channels it means 2 front speakers,2 rear speakers or either the center speaker or the subwoofer.try to hook up either center speaker or subwoofer.

Everything is hooked up correctly, but no sound


Had to run audio out from the Tivo to the Sub. TV doesn't need to be hooked up at all.

Center speaker


When you turn on zone 2 you are in stereo mode. The center speaker and the rear speakers will not function in stereo mode.

Try turning on zone 2 and then switch the surround mode after that and see if it helps. If it turns the zone 2 speakers off when you do that, then your unit does not support what you want it to do. Center speakers only work in listening modes other than stereo.

Most A/V receivers are designed for watching movies and they did not take this use into consideration because zone 2 would normally be in another room such as the way you have yours set up. If somebody is watching a movie in one room they would not need to hear it in another room. You would think that the designers, who are very talented to be able to come up with these type of units, would have just a little more imagination on how people would be using the equipment. Go figure!

If your receiver has a 5 or 7 channel stereo mode, it may work then. You can try, but I don't think it will help.

I have even seen some receivers that have the center channel amp being used for the zone 2 output as well. It just switches what speaker output jacks it goes to with a couple of relays which makes it impossible to use the center and zone 2 at the same time.

I guess they are just being cheap by not putting another output channel in the unit and sharing the one they have.

Why would anybody want to use the center and the zone 2 at the same time???? Sad, isn't it.

Hard to believe that such a nice receiver would have such a rediculous limit designed right into it. But they really do design them like that.

Let me know if you need more help.

Have got a laptop going to a amplifier and the 4 speakers are running.i have just bought a digtop 4 way stero speaker swith box so i can turn of what speakers i want.what do i have to do 4 this


Boy a bit hard to figure out what your saying
but your laptop goes into a aux input on the receiver then the speaker box hooks to the the left and right output on the receiver. you just use the main outputs or A outputs then the speakers all four hook to the speaker switch box
I think this is what you are wanting but hard to tell with the info you gave.

Display shows only L and R speakers.


I think you need a digital coaxial wire instead of the composite ones

Overload?


From the manual, you may have seen this: Switch off the unit, determine and correct the cause, then switch the unit on. Causes include: ?Shorting (bare wires touching) of positive and negative speaker wires. ?Using speakers with an impedance lower than that rated for this unit. ?Straining of the speakers through excessive volume or power. ?Using the unit in a hot environment without proper ventilation.
