Phantom backround sounds

Occasionally you can hear what sounds like "musical scales" or like a truck starting up and driving off in the backround while viewing television. They do not over power the regular broadcast sound, but they easy to make out, especially the "scales".

Need more info. Does it happen while using other sources? (DVD, games, VCR..) if so, pause the source and see if the sound is still audible. if it's only on the TV source then MUCH more info will be needed.

C1 not working


Sounds like your Phantom power supply may be defective. To be safe, 1st try moving AC plug for Phantom supply to another outlet as sometimes "sharing grounds" can be a problem. If this doesn't help, try using another phantom power source ...many PA mixers have built-in phantom power. If the buzz disappears with a new one, it will be a filtering issue (capacitors) with the old phantom supply.

Backround sound is fine but voices speaking are muted


I'm not sure of this system but if this was mine I would say it sounds like your playing this in a 2-Channel mode which eliminate the center channel.
you music may be set up fine, but the mode you play a dvd in may be set up for 2-channel mode. try a dolby prologic 5-channel or some other mode if you have one.

Rx-v563 backround music much louder than people when watching tv


I would check your center speaker wiring and setting. Then switch to a different audio setting (pro logic, theater...)

All the Songs on Media Player & Music I Download into the Media Player Get Distorted you Can Hear the Backround music & Some of the Chorus Fine but the Lyrics of the song are distorted if you can hear it...


It sounds like you have a problem with what is called "phase cancellation," which is something complicated that happens with audio when the left and right channels get out of sync and cancel out all of the common sound between the two channels. This can happen with bad speakers, a faulty output jack, or just failing to plug in the speakers all the way - it's also used (trivia!) constructively in the studio to create interesting effects on sounds.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase_cancellation

I don't think that you are actually experiencing a problem with WMP, but with your speakers or possibly your sound card. Here's what to do:

First, while music is playing, check and make sure that the speakers are well connected. Double check where they plug into your computer and ensure that the jack is inserted all the way. If they appear fine, flex the speaker cable a bit near the adapter...if you hear the sound change in any way (not including clicks or pops, really), the problem is most likely a short in your cable. Replacing the cable or speakers if necessary will solve this. If this doesn't help either, turn the speakers off and unplug them.

If you have an iPod or Discman lying around, plug it into the speakers and turn it back on. With music playing does it sound better? If yes, probably your sound card is damaged. These can be replaced very inexpensively. If it still sounds just as bad, your speakers are probably broken. You can try a new cable if it is A) removable and B) you have a replacement or don't mind buying one. Otherwise the speakers will have to be replaced.

When I plug in my Ipod to the Aux.....


I am having a smilar problem, I think the aux jack itself is messed up. I lose the sound out of the left channel, then I jiggle the connection a bit and get the sound back... Often when you can hear instruments and no voice you are hearing only a left or right track. Are you sure both the left and right is working?
