Question about Onkyo TX-SR604 Receiver

2 Answers

Onkyo Amp One side of the my Amp doesn't reproduce sound at the same level as the other side. It has recently started to do this, I've switched channels, speakers, speaker wire, adjusted volume levels but still one side is softer than the other. Could there be a transistor or something blown?

How many watts onkyo p3300 amp & pre-amp home stereo audio

Sorry I don't know the answer to your question because I don't know the specification of your amplifier but like a car engine that might have a capability of, say, 200 horsepower, in use and for practical purposes that figure is completely immaterial because most of those horses would never be used by a responsible driver. It requires only about 20 horsepower for an average car to maintain 50mph so it hardly matters what the potential power output is as long as it is capable of doing the work assigned to it.

The average person listening to a hi-fi in an average room requires an average power output of around half a watt. It is immaterial if the amplifier is capable of 50, 150 or 500 watts because for comfortable distortion-free listening most of that potential power will never be used.
With hi-fi the problems start with the speaker systems. It is a mistake to use a high power speaker in a domestic environment regardless of the potential amplifier power output. The amp will only produce the power it is capable of if it is driven hard (the volume turned up) and because doing that is anti-social, wasteful and harmful to health and comfort that should not happen but high power speakers tend not to reproduce sound efficiently at low power and so more power must be provided than would otherwise be needed with good low power speakers.
Fashions have changed and it is now difficult to find good hi-fi speakers for the domestic environment that reproduce sound efficiently at low power levels and speakers with a 10 watt rating, the ideal type for small to moderately-sized accommodation, are almost impossible to find these days but it is still possible to find good drive units rated at between 20 and 50 watts that perform fairly efficiently at social volume levels.

Cant get new HDMI board for Onkyo TX-SR604

It's usually the hdmi switching IC that goes bad on these. Not something you can really replace without the right equipment and knowledge.

I have just bought a new Onkyo TX-NR808 and set it up over the week end with new 'accusound' surround sound speakers. Have bi-amp the front speakers. I don't think I am getting very good sound out of it?...

Depending on the amplifier, it might not provide enough power (in Watts) to the speakers. If the speakers require more power, it won't be as loud.

Onkyo TX-DS 595 receiver surround channel unrealiable

How you power off the amp won't hurt it generally. I used to fix ONKYO amps under warranty, and I can tell you now, it will be full of dry solder joints. Take you unit to your local repairer, and they will resolder all the offending PCB's inside. This type of repair will fix 99% of strange audio noises and cutting in and out etc. for ONKYO recievers. Otherwise this is quite a good product.

No sound output

Known problem w/Onkyo. Resolder Q710 transistor on DSP board.
Onkyo is aware of this problem.

Bose 901 hookup with Onkyo SR 805 and Onkyo M282 amp and 901 EQ/

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

The Onkyo M-282 stereo amp for the 901's is the perfect solution. Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

**Onkyo SR805 Pre-Out Front >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> Onkyo M-282 IN

Set the Input Level on the back of the Onkyo to MAX. The receiver controls everything just fine after you run through your level setup routine again.

I was looking a the 12v triggers on both units and it looks like you only have a Zone 2 trigger so that wouldn't work for turning on your M-282. I guess you're going to have to turn it on and off the old fashioned way, like I do mine.

I would like to know if there is anyway to connect my Bose 901 speakers and Bose Equalizer without using a Amplifier?

The short answer is no. The more useful answer is:

The EQ is designed so that the 901s reproduce the correct sound levels throughout hte audio spectrum. Given the size of the individual speakers (approx 4") and the lack of bottom end response for speakers that small, some tricks are used between the EQ and teh cabinet design to allow for total response from 20Hz to 20,000Hz. That being said, the power to drive the speakers comes from the amp not the EQ. The output of the EQ is not sufficient to drive speakers.

Volume is changing/decreasing

well, that information is slightly undescriptive and unnecessarily vague, but I think I can suggest a few things.

If the problem only occurs when watching your HDTV, I am assuming you are using the Audio Out on your TV to pipe sound down to your Onkyo receiver. If this is the case, the TV volume may be turned down lower by mistake and you have to turn up the Onkyo's volume to correct for the difference.

Another possibility is that some other variable has changed i.e. source material, programming, TV firmware update. What did you change to get this to happen? Is it reproducible? Can you use other source material (DVD, VCR, or DAP (mp3 player) and use it at the same volume levels as before? I tend to think that your problem is with the HDTV, not the Onkyo. User error is the most common type.

No Sound

Called Onkyo and here is the solution they gave me.

1. Turn on unit.

2. Press and hold VIDEO 1 button.

3. While pressing VIDEO 1, press Speaker A button.

4. You should see "CLEAR" on the display for a second and it will go on stand-by mode.
5. Turn on the unit and check if sound is back.

Hope this helps
