Question about Onkyo Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have 2 qustions?

I have a nr609 onkyo and have enjoyed it for about 2 yrs but I have never figured out to use Zone 2 either with a separate amp or just using zone 2 with the 609 only. I have outdoor speakers so I like to run them louder than inside the house. I have a volume control outside to adjust speakers outside but everything I have tried does not work! I'm using a old Yamaha amp that I have always used but this 609 does not have a monitor out to run to the other amp. The zone 2 is way to hard to use. I have hooked into the zone 2 and then into the Yamaha inputs video etc.

My guess is that the yamaha has pre-amp outs, most yamaha stuff does, and that is the one you should be using for the main, and hooking up to the onkyo, and letting the yamaha be your zone controler, and the onkyo be your remote amp for your second zone (if your onkyo had pre-amp outs it would work how your trying to do it, but it dont) so exchange there places, and run a pre amp out to any input of your onkyo, and you'll have total volume control of your outside speakers

SOURCE: no zone 2 sound coming from yamaha amp rx-v861

Had same problem. A and B speakers are basically connected together, and there is no way to get the same volume out of each speaker. This is not a multi-source receiver like Onkyo. Zone 2 needs to go to a seperate amplifier and select teh correct source on the fornt,

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V663 Multi-zone question.

i just got the same receiver like few days ago im still leaning it too,it is a very nice receiver though. here is some settings to help you.
check this to make sure zone 2 is showing in the menu,
on remote
menu,basic setup, speaker set,extra should show zone 2 it might show zone b...presence...or none needs set on zone 2 hit the left a-e/cat button it is weird the right doesnt circle all around? i had to call crutchfield tech for that one(GREAT COMPANY!)so that is for the setting to make sure zone 2 is set up now some to adjust the volume.
menu, manual,options,zone 2 set. here you can set 2 features
max volume( the loudest it will play) inti vol(the volume that it will play at when it is turned on) the yamaha has alot of quirks to it but has a very nice sound. for second zone features and a easier receiver to set up i have onkyo and they are very easy to set up zone 2 olume and everything on the front panel. hope you dont have to try to program a universal remote to work it seems yamaha uses discrete codes that are impossible to find i tried one universal and can only get very basic features to work.
hope this helps you out,
jeff

You have to switch your remote into Zone 2 Mode. It will be an option on your remote. Once you put it in that mode, you can change the source just as you would Zone one.

SOURCE: Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.

The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

I'm using an onkyo tx-nr609, I have a wireless speaker adaptor plugged into zone 2 on the back next to where the subwoofer plugs in, but can't seem to get any sound to come out of it. Any ideas?


Hi Chris, not all sources will play to zone 2. Only internal and analog sources. If you want to play your cable box for example you need an analog connection from the cable box to the receiver. Also, the output is very low it needs to be amplified. Thank you, Onkyo USA

The server connection could not be established or was terminated early. PLease try again later. Trying to play Pandora on TX-NR609


You didn't say if you were using their wireless "dongle" or an ethernet connection. If ethernet try to connect another device - laptop, blu-ray or etc to see if you're getting a good modem signal. You might try re-setting the ethernet connection on your 609.

I'm assuming your audio is working, Onkyo had a lot of trouble with their HDMI cards, for some reason the defect usually took out the audio and ability to connect to the web.

Onkyo had a recall on 609s and they will repair the defect, free of charge or shipping. (In a range of serial numbers that, unfortunately, I do not know.) I took mine to a local repair shop and they told me it was recalled. It was about a year out of warranty but they fixed it.

No sound from receiver to speakers


It's been several months since the original post but :

The HDMI board on several different models of Onkyo receivers were defective. There was a recall on these receivers and Onkyo might fix them for free, even if the receiver is out of warranty.

Receiver will not turn on and is making a clicking sound TX-NR 609


This is the same problem i've had with my POS nr609. I will never buy Onkyo again.. Everyone warned me about the poor quality.. This thing worked for a year and a half, blew the amp., replaced and now another year and a half, f'd again. Save your time, buy a Denon or a Harmon Kardon. Better quality, same features..

Onkyo tx-sr601 bi wire with zone 2


SMCCARTY,
The idea behind bi-wiring speakers is to get the highest quality of sound by getting the sound from two separate sources doing separate jobs. Lower frequencies are harder for an amplifier to produce than higher frequencies. So it is common to give these frequencies to two different amplifiers so each can produce the highest quality of sound. By removing the low end from the top end amplifier, it provides the top end amp more headroom thus reducing the chances of clipping. Clipping can easily be heard from the tweeters destoying not only the sound but your speakers as well. It is common practice in pro and car audio to use separate amps for subbass, low, mid and high; four amps working together to their corresponding drivers (more or less depending on the system and type of audio being produced).

In your case, getting the two different sources from basically the same amp (power supply), would not accomplish the full intent of bi-wiring; it would just make more wiring for the same end result. However still a good thought on your end. Onkyo receivers are great because of their beefy power supplies. Not very many other brands have such strong power supplies. Denon's are close but not equal.

Onkyo 805 zone 2 problem


I just figured out what I was doing wrong last night. On the 806 at least, when zone 2 is not powered (receiver is set to act) there is a separate volume control 'level' that is on the receiver a couple buttons right of the zone 2 button. By default this level appeared to be set to -50db. As soon as I turned up this level sound came out of my zone two.
