Denon AVR-3300 Center Chanel Sound Problem

Sound coming out of my center speaker sounds funny. For years it's been working fine. What comes out now sounds very tiney with no depth. Front/Rear Left and Right and Sub are all fine. It's not the speaker as it's the same with a different speaker. It's only an issue with Dolby Digital input playing a DVD via optical or coax connections. Having the TV as a digital source has the same affect. I've been through the setup, tried resetting the amp all to no avail.

My guess is You have dried out electrolytic capacitors causing failure. These receivers when they get over 6 years old start drying out fluid in capacitors especially on regulator p.c.b. causing noisy supply lines. I work for Authorized service center in Michigan If you need repair and Shipping to Michigan is economical let me know kstahl65@att.net

I have a Denon AVR-1707 with a center, 2 front speakers, and surround sound back speakers. When set to FM radio, all speakers work. When set to TV, only one side speaker works. Any ideas? It worked fine...


Follow the sound back to its source. FM is internal so it can't possibly have a cabling issue.

I imagine your TV sound ultimately originates from a cable box which has a nice juicy digital output that the Denon could use. Why route audio through a TV, like the manuals tell you, when you can get it straight to the best audio device without a detour to a TV and its dubious audio electronics?

I hv a Denon AVR 3805, i tried to set it up but after doing all the necessary, i found out that it was only running on 3 speakers (FL,FR & SW). I did connect the center speaker but the sound just...


SW means sub woofer, not necessary means center speaker in all receivers. Instead of setting 5ch stereo, if you have 3 speakers. try to set "3channel" or "simulated". If you own more than 3 speakers, you may refer to the user´s manual to correctly wire them to get the full sound.

I cannot get my new center speaker to work???


Hi on a Denon receiver you generally have to do two things. By entering the on-screen setup go to speaker setup and select the center speaker and surround speakers if you have them. Depending on the age of the receiver it will ask you to select between yes or no (on or off) or none, small or large.

(most centers are considered small unless they have 5" or larger mid-bass drivers)

Next you will have to select a mode that activates the surround sound mode usually Dolby but many have alternates such as Neo, theater etc..

This should activate the center channel, you will need to then adjust it using the "Tone generator" or the Audessy setup program.

The goal is to have the same amount of sound coming from your front three speakers.
Hope that helps

No video on Denon avr 688


After days of frustration the real problem was with the cable box. It needed a firmware update. Following forum advice I disconnected the cable box power cord for a few minutes, reconnected it, allowed the cable box to reinitialize. Turned off receiver and TV. Turned TV back on and set it to HDMI connection, turned on receiver and all worked fine. Great picture and sound.( Needed to buy an optical cable to go from the cable box to the receiver to get sound from the speaker system. )--the dirtybird

Denon AVR-1403 connected to DVD can hear music but no dialougue!!


Check the center channel speaker and the surround sound audio settings. If you do not have a center speaker, it needs to be set to off on the receiver.

If your tv is putting out mono you will only get the center and sub speakers. This can be because the tv is only mono, or the output is set to mono in a menu of the tv. If you have cable or sat run the digital audio out to you receiver; it usually sound better that way anyhow. Set your receiver to Dolby mode for best sound.
