Question about Pioneer SX-315

1 Answer

Sound is flat

I've never been satisfied with the non-digital sound of my Pioneer sx-315. When I play a DVD, the sound is crisp. When I play a CD from the same source, or listen to the radio, the sound is muffled. For lack of a better word, it's as if it needs more tone, but I have it maxed.

Thanks for you help. It drives me nuts when I'm listening to the radio and it seems like I have cotton in my ears.

Re: Sound is flat

Press the analg att button on your remote also the pioneer keeps individual tone setteings for each imput so just check you have none of the filters turned on

I have tv hooked up to the pioneer but the TV will not play its sound through the speakers? what Am I doing wrong? I have the DVD hooked to the Pioneer and it works fine.

Is the unidentified TV a sound source from the SX-315's perspective? Is it's audio output enabled whene the TV volume is down? Would the Cable Box be a BETTER source?

I have a Pioneer Audio Multi Channel Receiver model SX-316-S and I can't seem to figure out how to hook up my TV and DVD to the receiver so that all sound comes through the receiver

DVD audio straight in from its highest quality audio output. Use the stereo audio output to run straight to the TV for casual watching through TV speakers without the Pioneer involved.

A TV is just a glorified night-light, not a sound source - get its related audio from the Cable Box, ditto the highest quality

No sound

I just fixed mine. Plug in your head phone. wait couple of seconds. you will hear clicking noise which seems to reset the receiver. 10seconds later, sounds should come on and if not unplug the head phone and you should hear it then.
