Yamaha RX-V575 sound issue

I was playing my DVD today and discovered that the sound when someone is talking in the movie is very soft but the music is loud. It seems that the sound of someone speaking comes from a distance. This problem just started today! Can you please advise if the equipment is faulty or do I just need to press a button to rectify this? Thanks.

Try other sound settings first, eg music, stadium, games, all the other sound options. if same results your centre speaker could be gone. or you need to increase the volume of the centre speaker in setting mode. do this first before assuming the speaker is no good. hope this helps

SOURCE: 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...)

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-v565 Radio & iPod

Hi there,

The most likely reason is that the audio settings on the receiver are set for digital audio and the connection for the iPod is analog. However, It's very difficult to determine anything without knowing how it is all setup. Please can you answer the following questions so that I know where to start looking.

1. How is the iPod dock connected to the receiver?
2. Is the Blu-ray player connected through the receiver to the TV (with HDMI?) or is the Blu-ray connected directly to the TV for video?
3. Is the audio for the Blu-ray sent direct to the receiver or via the TV?
4. Are "DIRECT" or "STRAIGHT" switched on?
5. When you select the input for the iPod on the receiver, what icons/words are illuminated on the receiver display?

Ideally, any information you can give me on how all of your devices are inter-connected would assist me greatly in solving your problem. I'm sure it's just a setup/settings issue rather than a fault with any of the devices.

Sorry for all of the questions, but it's very difficult to know what the problem might be without knowing how it's setup. Please reply to me with the details by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question and I will get back to you without delay.

I want to set the receiver to surround sound. The indicator only shows two speakers I want it to show five

What is the source of your sound? By default, receiver will use only those channels that are used in the input signal - if you play CD in stereto, it will use only 2 front speakers. If you play DVD with 5.1 audio, it will use all 5 speakers (+ subwoofer if you have one).

However you can use one of the bulitin "sound field program" modes to mix the 2 channel stereo music to all speakers. On front panel, press "PROGRAM < >" buttons to select the one you like. Or on remote control, repeately press MOVIE, MUSIC or STEREO buttons. You can check your manual for description of each sound field program.

How do you make the 6.1 channel work? Right now it just says digital. Does 6. 1 channel sound better?

6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.

I have an RX-V663 audio sounds flat

Let's deal with the turntable sound first - unless it's a self-preamplified model you would have to get an external phono-specific preamp to use with this receiver. Without one you'll get microscopically weak, tinny sound from the turntable. Google "RIAA curve" to see why.

As far as the CD sound through the Blu Ray player... for one thing it is flat, as in two-dimensional stereo. Compared to genuine surround from a movie it would be a letdown.

Can you better define 'flat'?

Dvd playback

Did you use Midi files when creating the Sound Track? If so your encoder may not have had the software to translate the Midi to the Mpeg2 sound track. Will it play back on other devices or just the Yamaha?

Vocals missing while playing with 2 speakers

Go to the amp "Basic Setup" and alter basic setup according to
- the size of the room (details in the manual)
- alter the no. of channels e.g. if you have only 2 front speakers, change the channels to 2.1 (.1 for the subwoof)
- Once the setup is changed, the amp pumps in sound according to the set up

All the best
