Question about Denon AVR-1708 Receiver

1 Answer

I have the denon avr-1708 receiver and inifinty tss-1200 speaker set up. I know the speakers are hooked up correctly because it plays FM radio just fine, but I CANNOT get it to do any type of surround sound while watching TV, DVD's or gaming. I have been thru the owners manual about 4 times now and it might as well be written in chinese. Any suggestions?? Much appreciated.

    Do you know how to do that? Like I said, I've been over the manual and its about impossible to read or decipher.

    Thank you.

I'm not familiar with this particular model, but it should be a option (or button) labeled "input", or "input mode", or "signal mode". Can you see on display "ANALOG" or DIGITAL when you switch receiver to TV in?

The surround sound outputs outputs ic's in the remainder of the system have opened, or there is a short in the speaker wiring, check to make sure that is not the case, if okay! you will need a repairman to assess the situation.

I have a Denon AVR-1707 with a center, 2 front speakers, and surround sound back speakers. When set to FM radio, all speakers work. When set to TV, only one side speaker works. Any ideas? It worked fine...


Follow the sound back to its source. FM is internal so it can't possibly have a cabling issue.

I imagine your TV sound ultimately originates from a cable box which has a nice juicy digital output that the Denon could use. Why route audio through a TV, like the manuals tell you, when you can get it straight to the best audio device without a detour to a TV and its dubious audio electronics?

Are you trying to kill it? A device has only so many emergency shut-offs it can withstand.

How are the spaces around the top, underside and back for ventilation?

0 dB isn't normally 'normal' volume.

I wonder if the fan is a self-defeating work-around because the noise might make you want to crank it up so higher so you can hear it.

Apple TV? Is it a dynamically-compressed audio signal? That would raise the average volume.
