Vr-405 does not have a digital decoder, so the digital signal is what you're hearing

More info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!

I have a Kenwood vr-405 and for the most part it works. I have been noticing that one front speaker is quite a bit louder than any other speaker. I have tried to adjust it many times and it seems like...

Maybe you should first isolate the problem to the receiver or the speaker by swapping the front speakers with each other to see if the loudness stays with the channel of the speaker.

Or, the acoustics of the room just make that speaker seem louder at the listening position. Try taming it with the adjustments provided in the receiver.

How to hook up a kenwood audio-video surround receiver vr-405 to a 46" Bravia tv?

hello all you need is a good pair of RCA cables.

Use the audio output on the TV
run it to the VIDEO 1 input on the receiver

as for your DVD player vcr etc you can either run them directly to the tv as it will output whatever sound is playing to the receiver.


use the receiver as a video switcher and connect your components directly to it.

remember your receiver will need to be set to the input you use. ie: video 1 / dvd etc..

Hope that helps

Reear speakers not putting out sound

If the TV sound source is through stereo RCA cables you'll only get rear sound if you choose one of the DSP modes. A digital source might work as expected, IF you have things correctly set up for multi-channel.

Does kenwood VR-405 play DTS-HD Master

I have the 405 and a Samsung 3600 which has onboard DTS Master/ Dolby True HD. Out of the 6 movies I 've watched, only 2 have given me Dolby Digital. Bottom line: If the movie doesn't have DD, you cant get DD on the 405. I thought just about all blu rays had DD but its not so. Its time for us to upgrade!

Kenwood vr-405 receiver

I have the 405 as well. My TV has an optical out and I run that straight to the 405 optical input. I set the input selector to DVD/CD (not DVD)and presto! TV audio out my speakers. It all comes down to the audio connections on your TV.
