Question about Yamaha RX-V995 Receiver

1 Answer

Mp3 connect yamaha rx-v995 ---> muddy sound

Connecting using any of the inputs leads to the same distorted, muddy sound, like the speakers are blown, which they are not. Player does fine with powered speakers or headphones; receiver and speakers are fine with other sources.

    Thanks much. I'll give that a whirl. My only doubt comes from the fat that it sounds great with powered speakers.

  • brookefox May 10, 2009

    In the MP3 player there are various preset EQ settings and custom EQ, but no settings or output controls for external devices other than those (that I can discern, anyway). The connection to the active speakers and the receiver is different, of course. I don't doubt that it is possible to achieve great improvement through tweaking of the EQ setings but I was hoping to find something easier as it looks like that would be very time consuming and error prone. Given that the situation is a very typical one, I was hoping to find a set of presets or specific recommendations.

Try getting into the configuration menu of the MP3 player and adjust the output controls for external devices....it sounds to me like it might be too high and/or the wrong output decoding.

    But you also indicate that the receiver and speakers are fine with other sources.



    But here is the important question:



    Does the MP3 player connect to the active speakers and to your receiver the same way?



    If it operates how you'd like with active speakers but not the passive speakers then it is a mismatched configuration between the output gain of the MP3 player to the amplifier section of the receiver.

    You still may be able to connect to the receiver in the same manner as you would to your powered speakers if it is that you are using the heaphone jack from the player. There might be an adapter available to split the headphone output to L&R RCA. Is it connecting now to the receiver straight from USB as it would to your computer?

How do you connect a Nakamichi surround sound system to my Phillips tv model 42PF7220A/37


I'm confused. The message header shows a problem with a Yamaha RX-V995 receiver.

As for connecting a Nakamichi (or any surround system) to a TV - the only connection would be the Monitor output (video connection) to an appropriate video input of your TV.

If it is a Nakamichi, it is a little older and probly predates the invention of HDMI cables. My guess is you will either use the S video output or Composite video output to the TV's input with similar connections.

This allows you to route whatever video sources you have connected to the Nakamichi to the TV.

Yamaha RX-V995: Is there anyway to only listen to


Assuming you have the same Model Variant ( I'm not sure if Yamaha varies model from Country to Country) I just switch mine to effect off ( 2 Channel) to remove the surround component so that only A or B speaker pairs work.That should fix it unless I am mistaken.

Yamaha RX-V663 powers off when I hit the volume up/down button. Used to work fine, but now it doesn't after I hooked up HDMI cables in back. Tried reseating them, but no luck. What am I missing.


Not sure If I'm on the money with this one but make sure none of your speaker leads wires are touching the case or each other. This may be causing the protection circuitry to cut in. ( I did this to my Yamaha when I plugged in yet another lead into the back )

Yamaha RX-V995 receiver turns on & then powers off 2 seconds late


I suggest you run self diag.  press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.

ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink

you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

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,
