Question about Denon AVR-987 Receiver

1 Answer

Minimal sound out of all of my speakers

I just received this Denon product and I am wholely unfamiliar with their products. I can barely seem to get any sound when hooking up my speakers to the receiver. The subwoofer works great by it is self powered. I'm trying to figure out if I am setting it up wrong or what. It is almost like the internal amplifier is not working. The rest of the receiver seems to be functional. Please help!

It could be there is not a driver installed on your computer in which case you have to download a driver and Best Buy can tell you how to do that. Also check in control box and make sure volume is not set to mute

Denon avr 592 no sound


Hi,
First of all check all the speakers. Maybe all the speakers gone out because of the loud blast. Also check in the tuner mode. Is there is any sound. If there is some problem in the avr then it will show the fault and will go into protection mode.


You can check the speakers with a battery from any one of the remote. Take the leads of each speakers and connect the lead to the battery terminals. If the speaker is ok then it will make a small cracking sound each time when you connect its wire to the battery.

It seems you are not unfamiliar with censorable abbreviations.

RTFM and go through all the settings again.

Your unspecified external devices all have settings, cables and (if digital) the ports on the Denon may need to be assigned.

What is night and pure button?


'Night' compresses the audio's dynamic range to make soft sounds more audible and loud sounds less loud for a given volume setting. The assumption being that there are people sleeping while you're listening or there's so much environmental background noise that you won't hear the soft sounds. It sort of defeats the whole reason for having HIGH fidelity sound. Ditto for D.Comp.

'Pure' bypasses all internal analog processing (page 25). Why? Who can say? Other than to diagnose a problem. If the tone controls are contributing to the sound they don't belong in a Denon product to begin with. The implication is that to NOT use Pure or Direct is to inflict audible limitations on the sound. And you may lose control of the sub, too. Oh goody.

Denon AVR 1804


You need to get the manual and do some reading first. I couldn't find the AVR-1804 but the AVR-1803 is avaiable. It should be close enough to get you through connection and setup.

AVR-1910 & Bose Lifestyle 35 setup


Bose Lifestyle (and all Bose-amplified speaker) products and their speakers are SYSTEMS and should not be split up or intermixed with other brands or models. Damage will probably result. Proprietary connectors provides a clue.

The digital audio out should work with the Bose. You could still use your Denon to drive a conventional sub in your scheme, but you would have to manually match volume with the Bose. Or go Full Monty and buy a full complement of speakers for the Denon, retask the Bose and slave its sources to the Denon.

Noise coming out of speakers connected to Denon AVR 1908


Check for nearby wireless devices and move them away. -If the audio output from the source device (i.e. DVD, CD player) is digital (i.e. PCM, DTS or Dolby Digital) you're on your own. I'd be willing to bet the output is analog (red and white RCA), because the "beeps" and "exploding sounds" you describe seem like it could be caused by interference. Try replacing the cables. Otherwise the issue is probably with your receiver.

Minimal volume for my turntable


A turntable is always compatible with any sound system. The problem here is that turntables need and pre amplified input to work, and since you don't see turntables anymore, most sound systems only have level inputs like the CD in, Auxiliary, etc. like yours. You will need to buy a small in-line amplifier made especifically for turntables. Although it might be hard to find one and in some cases it will cost a bundle, but start by asking about such a device at your local electronics store. They will probably at least be able to cue you in to where you can get one locally. If all else fails search the net for:"Turntable pre-amp" and you should get all the info you need and find a few online stores that sell them.

DENON AVR-1905 centre channel dropout


I have seen this a few times. Try resoldering the pins on the voltage regulators. If you are not comfortabel with that, bring the unit to a service shop and report the problem as intermittant. Have them resolder the regulators and the surround output amp chips. This should cost only a minimal labor amount. That may resolve the problem. If not, then we'll need to look into the surround processing circuitry.
