Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

1 Answer

Volume Control I recently pickeded up the Onkyo 605. The sound is great, but I am running into volume control problems when I watch a movie, I am constantly having to turn the volume up and down. When a scene is just dialogue, I need to turn up the volume so I can hear it pretty well. Usually I am at around 60. But anytime a big action scene comes up, 60 seems to be too loud, so then I have to turn the volume down again. Gets kind of annoying having to adjust the volume every 5 minutes. Does anyone know what you need to do to compensate for this issue?

    I have a center speaker, two side speakers and two surround sound speakers. I just used the Audessey auto setup for my speakers, and this is the problem I came accross. Is the auto set up recommended? or shoud the speaker set up be done mannually?

    I have a similar problem. I did not ID the problem to be dialog or with a pertictuar type of signal, but the volume (not the knob, but the sound) would go up and down in what seemed like ramdon times while watching a movie. I have run the auto equlizer for speaker setup already once and it work well correctly ID'ing the speakers and their location. Is this due to some setting/mode/field that I have accidently selected? Could this be due to over headting? My unit is on an open shelf with nothing above or below it and I only have volume set to around 60 so I would be upset if this is the case, but the top does get hot to the touch. Any ideas?

    Simplemitch, that did it! I had a 5.1 speakers setup before and had ran Audessey and all sounded good. I then increased the size of my center channel without re-runing Audessey and that is when I started having problems. I then took your suggestion of re-runing Audessey and it worked. Thanks.

How do you have it hooked up to speakers (are you using a center channel)? What listening mode are you in (dolby digital, stereo, pro-logic...)? It sounds as though you're not getting center channel info....

    Ah! it has Audessey! Ok, reun the setup again and listen to it. Do ALL the speakers (including the center) produce the weird test noise? When done, play a movie (prefferably with a lot of action). Place your ear near the center channel.Is it producing sound?

Connect Sharp LCD tv to Onkyo TX8011 Receiver


The Onkyo TX8011 is a Stereo Receiver. Two ways to connect:
1) The HD Cable box should have an audio out (typically red and white). Connect this to the Obnkyo CD input (red and white). The volume may be controlled with the Cable box remote or Onkyo remote. The TV volume may be muted or ON.

2) Connect LCD TV's audio out to Onkyo TX8011's CD input.
This is not a great way to set up, as the TV volume, when moved high, will attenuate (over load) the amplifier, leading to a jarring sound on the speakers. To avoid this, the TV volume should be ALWAYS FIXED low.. say about 30%. Only the Onkyo's volume should be adjusted while watching.

Hope this helps.

How do I hook up my blue tooth headphones to my onkyo SR 605


You cannot rig up a blue tooth headphones to this receiver with out a blue tooth transmitter ( the Onkyo does not have one built in ). If you have a transmitter it can be plugged into the headphone out socket of the Onkyo ( in front ), just remember that it will cut out the sound from all your speakers when you insert the headphone jack . The advantage though with this connection is you can control the headphone volume using the Onkyo remote.

ONKYO TX-SR608 I need to have my volumne up over 40 to get any sound and around 55 to listen to my home theatre on 5.1 . Does this sound normal? Also, how can I view the volumne when using Zone 2? I...


Yes it is normal, the 608 is a THX certified receiver, so it goes by THX reference levels.

In theory once you have run the Audyssey auto-setup with the included mic the proper reference level for watching movies will be 82 if the volume number scale is set absolute or 0dB of it is set to THX relative. At this setting the volume should be the same as watching that movie at the theater. I have mine set to power-on at a level of -30dB which corresponds to level 52 on the scale you have it set to. This is a comfortable lowish level, but I turn it up to at least -10dB AKA 72 when watching movies.

After a long effort searching on Google, I found a solution. There is a Late night setting on the remote that limits the loud sounds scenes so it is not much loader than the dialog. Works great, I can't believe I never notice the button before.

Volume Control


I had the same issue, there is a Late night mode on the remote that minimizes the volume of a loud scene so you don't have the constantly adjust the volume. Works great if you are trying to watch a movie while others are trying to sleep.

Problem connecting Onkyo Amplifier to Bose Accoustimass speaker system


This is probably correct as modern equipment uses electronic volume controls rather than potential dividers the range is normally biased towards the bottom end so there is lots of the range that is quiet and a smaller part that is loud.

Unless you find that at the top of the volume range the system does not seem to be loud then it is probably correct. It is not uncommon for modern equipment to clip at 80 / 90% of the volume range. Where as old style equipment with volume pots used to clip at arround 30% of the volume range as it gave the apperance there was loads of extra volume available. In fact all that happened if you turned it up louder was it clipped more and more.

Andrew

Volume on my Onkyo Receiver


Yes it is. I have the 705. My room mate has the 605. Both AVR's will not have appreciable volume until 50 on the dial.
The dial in not linear. I don't know of anyone who has plotted the scaling of the volume control yet.
I have found much useful user info on avsforum.com. Owners post Q&A based on experiences.
Search the forum for "official onkyo TX-SR605" thread.
Some comparable info may also be found under the "official onkyo TX-SR705".
