Question about Integra DTR-5.1 Receiver

1 Answer

Volume control unstable

I am having an issue with My Integra DTR5.1. It has to with the volume control and speaker output. If i change the volume manually or by remote the unit will cut speakers out, go to high volume, go to low volume, turn unit off. I have sent it away a couple time to be fixed, out of warranty. A short time after repair the problem comes back. I really liked the receiver when new but dont want to spend too much on it as nobody has a fix that lasts. Do buy a new one, or can some repair this unit easily? Have you heard of this problem? I would estimate less than 20 hrs on unit.

You may have an over heating problem as it the Integra has anautomatic cut out. The unit generates a huge amount of heat and needs to be positioned in a very well ventilated position.

I just bought the sharp home theater system ht-sl70/ht-sl75 and I cannot get the volume to be controlled thru my remote. I have a 60 inch sharp aquos tv. It has no arc and when I use the rca connection it...

I just bought HTSL75 speakers. Its manual saying its volume is controlled by TV's remote control
But i am having Samsung UN46EH6000 LED. and Speakers is connected to LED via RCA and LED is giving fixed output, so all the time, speaker is working on full volume

Is there any workaround, so that i can control volume while using sharp HT-SL75 speakers with Samsung UN46EH6000 ?

Is there any volume control device to control the volume of the speakers in my case ?

Thanks for your help !!

Sound output is low nowadays even at full volume whereas before it was ok. I didn't change anything with my computer nor did I change my speakers.

Two possible causes.1) Vol Settings changed in windows2) Bad hardware
1) Check your system's sound settings:

For Xp
  • Goto Control Panel
  • Double Click Sound and Audio devices / Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices
  • In device Volume Click Advance
  • Master Volume Control Window will open
  • Increase all the volumes to max, also make sure that Mute us UNCHECKED.

  • From the bottom right corner of your screen in system tray, double click a small speaker icon and open Master Volume Control.

For Vista and Windows 7
  • From system tray (its at bottom right corner of your screen) double click on small speaker icon, it will open Volume mixer
  • Increase the volume to max.

2) If this does not work, then test your speakers by connecting it to some other system and vice versa.
If you get desired sound volume when you connect some other speakers to your system, then you have to change your speakers. And if your speakers are working fine on other system then you may have to purchase a new sound card.

Low to no volume output from Integra DTR-5.2 receiver

most higher end integra's have a input level adjusment or input selection for each and every input. Perhaps you are not on the correct input, go to onscreen programming and check out the input level and input select - also try the tape in another input like tape 2 or cd. It will not hurt the receiver for a test. Also, if you are using the cheap cables from the manufacturer - try a pair of cables that you know work or go by some. BTW, you don't need to spend $40 for cables order them online through amazon or other store. Gold / sliver plated oxygen free are best.

Bose Companion 5 Producing Unstable Sound

The intensive bass is making the speaker shake very much and that could have caused a short that changes the volume after a while when the speaker has been shaking for a period of time. You could try lowering the bass or volume to see if it makes a change in how long it takes to make the volume change.
