Is it possible to to have a home theatre with Denon AVR 3600

I have a Denon AVR 3600 and having been using it for about 6 years , very happy with the performance, was previously using it with Tannoy DC3000, I replaced the Tannoy with Bose 901 series VI , however not able to get a clean 5.1as the Bose equalizer does not get connected with the Home theatre mode.I have checked the Bose catalog and it say the Home Theatre amplifier should have and the rear side horse shoe pins which connect from pre amp out to main amp in, the Denon 3600 does not have this option and I don't see any other brands of AVR's in the market with this option, please suggest/advise how do I connect the Bose 901 with the Denon 3600, Thankyou

One option that may yield results, since the bose connection to equalizer is presently not possible is to set the speaker out put on the denon for 'small' on all but the front speakers.
and then set the delay for all speakers based on the distance to the amp.
this should result in better audio that that with the bose eq.
will work on the issue of using the eq. with the denon if you like. but, you will likely not improve on the sound with the denon set up correctly.
good luck

Can a Denon 3600 be updated to except wyfi

I think you'll be fine, as this particular receiver's video connections allow for 4K. Connections:
  • 1080p-compatible HDMI digital audio/video switching; 6 in (including 1 front-panel input), 1 out
  • HDMI version 1.4a with support for 3D video, 4K video, Audio Return Channel, Deep Color, x.v.Color, auto lip-sync, and HDMI-CEC
  • analog-to-HDMI video conversion to 1080p
  • HDMI-to-HDMI video conversion to 4K Ultra HD

Same problem as below, I have the Denon AVR 790 and the sound keeps switching to headphones. Blowing into the socket did not help. Both unpluging the AV and putting the headphones in and out fix's the...

The unit thinks there are headphone plugged in even when there are not. You need to have the headphone jack replaced. This is a common problem with this model. Another way to fix it if you don't plan on using the headphone jack is to unplug the cable going to the headphone jack board. This will disable the headphone jack, and stop it from sending an erroneous signal to the micro.

Video Inputs for Denon AVR 589

manual is here:

Note on page 11 says "because video signals are out put from the AVR-589's monitor output terminal IN THE SAME FORMAT AS THE VIDEO SIGNALS, THE MONITOR OUTPUT TERMINAL SHOULD BE THE SAME TYPE AS THE TERMINAL USED FOR INPUT."

You cannot mix the HDMI with the others. You must therefore use the same on DVD and Cable box.

Best Regards and happy new year!

Denon AVR 883 Audio glitch

More than likely the protector circuit is getting activated... You can't go below 6 ohms on the surround back which means you need 12 ohm or higher speakers for outside (since the two outputs for surround back/zone2 are in parallel). As a simple diagnostic test, disconnect one speaker and see if the sound survives longer than 2 seconds.
