Denon AVR-1082/3802 Using External Power Amp for Front Channels

I have a Denon AVR-1082 that I have been using for the last 5 years with Vandersteen 1Cs in the front and Polk Audio 10Bs in the rear with no center channel or sub. I have a Denon POA-1500 Power Amplifier that I bought 22 years ago, but haven't used it since I bought the receiver. I recently tried to connect the power amp to the pre-out jacks to see if it would result in any noticeable improvement in sound quality. I connected the two front speakers to the power amp and connected the power amp to the front pre-out jacks but got no sound from the front speakers in any mode (stereo, 5 ch stereo, ext in w/SACD, etc.) I went into the system set up menu to the power amplifier assignment selection and tried both the Surround and Multi options without success. Since the manual provides no instructions for this, but shows how to connect the amplifier, I assumed that it should work without altering any settings on the receiver. The power amp worked fine the last time I used it connected to a HK preamp. Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong in the setup or what might be malfunctioning? The HK preamp was creating loud popping noises when I adjusted the volume, so I haven't tried to check the power amp connected to the HK preamp.

    It turned out that the amplifier was not working. I took the amp to the local electronics repair shop for diagnosis and repair. $250 later, I have a fully functioning amp that was successfully able to drive my front speakers. The connections were straight forward. Once the amp was connected to the preamp out and the speakers were connected it worked. The extra power made a noticeable difference in the sound quality of the entire system. It has a fuller sound and handles loud passages better.

Make sure the input setting is set to 'Auto' while on those channels and not Analog.

SOURCE: No surround sound from my Denon 3805

well as long as all signals are routed through the Denon your on the right track, now what else you have to do is connect all devices to the reciever do not loop one device through another. Also you have to try the different surround fields to hear the one you like the best for music I use 5Ch stereo for movies the surround field varies based on the type of movie

SOURCE: left channels do not work when using surround modes

Ohhhhhh, so it has NEVER worked for YOU and it needed fixing when you got it. That changes everything. And you don't have the manual??

You can find the manual on Retrevo.com. Just register and download it. You're going to need it to make use of this unit anyway.
Make sure everything is connected correctly.

Look it over and play around with it. Speaker setup needs to be done before anything else. Did you get the microphone that comes with it? If not, go to page 23 and start there.

The manual... http://www.retrevo.com/support/Denon-AVR-2310CI-Receivers-manual/id/23452bh638/t/2/

I'm pretty sure you mean "LFE + Main".

You need to identify the speakers to the receiver as Large or Small regarding their bass-handling capacity more than their actual size.

"LFE" removes the possibly overloading bass in a given speaker channel containing 'small' speakers and sends it to the subwoofer.

"LFE + Main" is sort of explained on page 29 "Bass Setting". The intent of LFE+Main is to task your subwoofer with the bass that ALSO exists on all other speaker channels regardless of their ability to handle it all by themselves. As you can imagine, this might make the subwoofer respond to sonic events that are actually supposed to be directional from, say, the rear channel(s). In that case the event might seem to come from wherever the sub is located instead of the intended direction; or at the very least it might seem to come from both places which is probably not what the sound engineers intended when they recorded the piece.

Having full-range speakers 360-degrees around PLUS a subwoofer, I don't subscribe to the 'bass-is-non-directional' school of thought. If you've ever felt the concussion from and subconsciously glanced toward one of the speakers after, say, a huge explosion, the system is working.

Reference to the manuals is highly recommended. All controls and indicators are explained. There may actually be a clue on the front panel. Resetting the microprocessor is a last gasp solution and may only bury you deeper because it will zero out all settings.

I've had my Denon AVR-2308CI receiver for 3 years and last week I turned it on to watch a movie and there is no sound coming from my rear speakers? I have a 5 speaker set up (3 in front and 2 in the rear)...


On the front display of the unit, you should have indicator icons that light up if a speaker is being used. Are there only 3 speakers lite up, or are there 5? As a quick check, make sure your speaker connections are secure, and then make sure your surround mode is set to a 5 channel surround mode. 5 channel Stereo is a good one to test with. Also, you can hit the "test" button to see if the speakers are connected and working, it will give a test signal out of each speaker independently. Let me know what you find, and I can answer more.

What inputs on the Denon AVR 1500 do I use for connecting a turntable


If the turntable is old-school (not self-preamplified) just connect it to PHONO.


If the TT is self-preamplified use any available Line Level input, like AUX.

Wiring speakers


your main 2 speakers (front left & right)..hopefully the 5th speaker is a subwoofer right if not it will be...the last 2 speakers will be use as the rear (left & right)...in order for this to sound correct the receiver should have a button (5:1) depressed ...otherwise you just have 5 regular speakers...

Problem getting the best surround sound when watching a dvd


THE BEST SOUND IS WHAT SOUNDS BEST TO YOU, HOWEVER DO THIS:
1, USING THE SETUP MIC CONFIGURE YOUR DENON, PAGE 8 OF THE MANUAL. NEXT
2. RAISE THE REAR SPKR LEVELS, PAGE 46,47. NEXT
3. WHEN LISTENING TO AUDIO CD OR RADIO TRY THE 5 CH STEREO DSP MODE.
4. WHEN WATCHING A DVD USE DSP DOLBY PROLOGIC OR TRY 5CH STEREO IF THE MOVIE IS MOSTLY TALKING.
5, TRY 5CH STEREO WHEN WATCHING PROGRAMS WITH MOSTLY TALKING

5ch/7ch stereo in 5 channel mode


Front panel button engaged for 5 or 7 channel operation? Also check front panel rear surround speakers button is engaged. Should get you back to 7.1 unless you have changed the rear surround speaker setup for a 2nd zone, also be sure you have a 7.1 DSP setting enabled.
