Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver
Since I bought my receiver (Pioneer VSX-D608) I found the audio level to be low for a system of this quality and power rating. I typically watch TV or DVD at –36 db level. At this volume setting I can carry on a normal conversation with anyone in the room without raising my voice.
The rear speakers have to be set at max to hear even a remote surround effect, and when I had my Polk SDA-2A speakers connected to Speaker A or B the amp would cut out around -32 db (audio still was not loud). My initial thought was a final stage of the audio amp may be marginal or being bypassed but without the maintenance manual it is difficult to determine the link between the main speaker and the rear speaker audio level.
Do you know if other people have experienced this problem or even why the receiver cannot handle the Polks being connected?
Are your speakers matched to the unit for ohms and impedance? Check the manual and the rating on your speakers. Unmatched speakers will deliver less power.

When I had problems with my VSX-D608, I resorted to downloading the manual for VSX21. This model seems to have the same features in the ELITE form. It has helped me figure out some speaker problems.
