Question about Pioneer DEH-1500 CD Player

1 Answer

Sound quality When volume is at low levels sound is ok. As the volume increases, the voices become 'static' and 'distorted'. It can't be turned up loud enough to be heard over road noise. I have tried different speakers with the same result. I just bought this unit at an auction and the prior owner said it worked great. Also, I am unable to receive any AM stations.

Mpc 1000 loud static

Maybe try adjusting the MASTER level?

Good Luck

Other settings
Adjusting the master level You can adjust the level of the headphone and the stereo out by turning the MAIN VOLUME knob. The MAIN
VOLUME changes the analog signal level. This will also adjust the entire level of the MPC1000 digitally.
01. Press the [MODE] key and then the [PAD 10] (OTHER).
It switches to the OTHER mode.
02. Press the [F1] (GLOBAL) key.
The GLOBAL page will be displayed.
03. In the Master level field, set the level.
You will set the digital signal level, which will be sent out to the DA converter. The MPC1000 can output up to
32 sounds simultaneously. There is the great difference in the level when you play single sample and play 32
sounds. If you increase the value in the Mater level field, you can increase the entire level of the MPC1000 to
create more powerful sound with less noise. However, if you playback many sounds at the same time, the
level may be overloaded, which may cause distortion. If you decrease the value in the Master level field, you
can prevent distortion when you play many sounds at the same time. However, you cannot have a good
result in respect to the noise or punch of the sound. Set the appropriate value in the Master level field
depending on the application.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer

Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

Title: my laptop brand acer aspire 4750G is volume low problem

Ok, you can purchase a good quality Headphone or a woofer to improve your soun quality.
Otherwise you install Winamp with DFX, that also increase your sound quality as well as volume.

I have a sony MP# player, same range as listed but the 8GB model. I can only turn volume up to 16 before it starts distorting and giving a really bad and weak signal though the headset, when the stereo...

Headphones are not designed to have the volume levels run at maximum. At this level the sounds from the headphones will distort.
Speakers have a much larger voice coil and therefore will not distort at higher volume levels.
Also when the speakers are connected to the MP3 player the sound level may appear lower because speakers require more energy to drive (produce sounds). In this case you need to connect powered (amplified) speakers to the MP3 player.

How do i reconnect the internal speakers on a samsug television

Most car and home stereo speakers won't work because they're not shielded. They'll cause major issues with color distortion in the picture. Also, I'll bet a week's pay that 250 watts isn't the audio amp power output. Unless there's a large heat sink inside with several large output transistors, that TV is probably closer to 25 watts per channel max.

Also consider that the cabinet that houses the speakers is as important to the quality of sound as the speakers themselves. Cabinets are designed specifically for the speakers, so swapping to a better set of speakers may actually degrade the overall performance. Further, there's not a whole lot of room inside the speaker enclosures to provide the cabinet (cubic) volume necessary to produce deep bass. The speaker/cabinet combination is probably the best the designers could cram into that case.

That said, you'd have a dramatic increase in quality if you connected the audio outputs of the TV (if it has them) to the aux input of your stereo. Or better yet, a surround sound system that allows you to turn up the center (dialogue) channel.

In the meantime, there is something you can try: The specs say that TV has a five-band graphic equalizer, turbo sound (usually just a high & low boost), and an "auto leveller". Turn off the turbo sound and auto leveller to help bring out the dialogue. Adjust the graphic EQ to slightly boost the midrange frequencies where the human voice resides

Distorted right channel

There is a problem in the pre-amp section of the receiver. This is most likely a bad transistor. FIgure on about $5-$15 for parts for this repair.

Playing songs at certain volume

Several things can effect the quality of your files. 1. Check your headphones by comparing them with others. 2. The file quality may be too low, you can test that by getting a higher quality MP3 file and comparing the two. 3. If you are creating the MP3 files yourself, be sure to watch the sound recording level. Allowing it to stay in the red can produce distortion while recording ay too low of a level can result in low voulume as well as possible distortions. If none of these correct the issue, you may need to replace the player.
