Question about Onkyo HT-S680 System

1 Answer

I am not getting the full surround sound options. With DVD movies the actors voices/conversation can not be heard except on All Channel Set or Stereo options. This used to work. Ive added Optical audio and re-wired the speakers but no joy. Can you help?

On the remote try scrolling through the settings from the DTS button and also make sure you have the correct audio source selected. I switched to the optical cable but, then found that the better sound for my room came from the RCA set-up.
Good Luck and I hope this helps.

When a movie is playing, you can hear all sounds except the actors voices....they are mumbled.


The voices are probably coming out on one of the channels that has a bad speaker, bad wire, loose connector, or bad output. If you have the audio set to 5.1 output, change it to two-channel stereo output. The voices should return to normal.

No English language on DVD 's


Bought a new unit. The old unit was a surround sound system in which the previous owner removed the speakers. I wasn't aware of the problem but found out that it would not allow it to play on Dolby 5.1...It would only play DVD's on channel 2, therefore no english etc. Thanks for your help!!!

Polk Audio RC55i In-Wall Surround Speakers (can't hear whispers)


I'd make sure that the receiver surround mode is set for one of the digital settings, such as Dolby Digital or DTS, and make sure that you have the center channel level adjusted to a level similar to the other two front channel speakers. I've seen/heard this happening when using dolby digital material & having surround set on something like 'hall' or 'stadium' or dolby surround, where only 4 channels are used & the amp has to 'mix' sounds to the left & right front speakers. It'll often sound like the actors on screen are talking out of the bottom of a barrel, with a hollow & tinny character to the voices.

Actors voices


Hi....

If your system is set up for surround and you dont have a center speaker that will happen.
Check the manual for best setup

Surround center speaker does not work


This is a 5.1 (6 Channel Technology) You should hear only the voice thro the center speaker. If the source you are playing is stereo, however the software splits the source its difficult to seprate the voice track, if the source is a DTS 5.1, then you should hear the voice only thro the center speaker. eg: when you play a DVD movie which is DTS 5.1 then you should hear only the voice track in the center speaker, if the dvd movie is just stereo then you will not hear any audio in the center speaker, while the other four speakers get output, this is the special effect in 5.1 ( 6 channel Output).

Jensen VM9510 No voices in movies


It sounds as though the unit is set up for "6-channel" surround mode, but you don't have a center speaker. That means the audio sent to that speaker isn't being heard. You'll need to get to the audio setup menu, and either turn off the 6-channel mode, or turn off the center channel option. There are two different Jensen models with the VM9510 model number, but you can download an owner's manual for either one here: http://www.audiovox.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/GenProductListCmd?type=model&catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&categoryId=VM9510&langId=-1&page=&urlString=&productId=&brand=
