Cant Hear Dialogue Over the Background Sound

I have a Yamaha HTR 5740 which I use for Home Theatre. Often times, I have a hard time hearing the spoken dialogue coming from the center front speaker over the background coming through the other four speakers. I have misplaced my manual and this device overwhelms me with all its buttons. Can anyone tell me how I can fix this? I hear better with my TV speaker turned up than I do from my surround sound system which I paid a lot of money for. Thank You.

The owner's manual should have a section on how to balance the system. I don't have one at the moment, but I believe that this model also has a setup tone generator option. Look in the owner's manual or online at Yamaha for a copy of it. This will contain the instructions for the setup.

I have a Yamaha HTR 5960 receiver hooked up to a Klipsch 10" synergy sub. The system has been set up for about 6 years and the sub suddenly quit working. I have checked connections and the sub is getting...


If you remove the signal cable from the amplifier while the Sub is switched on (turned down about half way) you should hear a thump sound. If you do that proves that your sub is working and you need to look at your Yamaha. Perhaps the sub channel has been disabled in the logic settings. Check the speaker configuration pages. If all looks well reset your amp to factory settings and try again. I have had a logic glitch which was fixed in this way.

I have a yamaha "htr-5630"


NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume, for all intents and purposes it's not there.

Look for a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Strangely enough, that message is NOT documented in the HTR-3063 manual, but in another Yamaha manual (HTR-5063) it means the speaker being tested is believed to be Out of Phase, meaning wired incorrectly.

Your unit (HTR-3063) doesn

5.1 Home Theatre - PC


Its due to 2.1 channel sound input from your PC. Your Laptop supports only 2.1 channel sound so all the 5 speakers cant be played at a time! You need 5.1 channel input to work all 5 speakers

I have no sound coming from home theatre system


I would check see if you can hear any hissing coming from the speakers if there's no sound then check to see if this product has output protection fuses and if so see if they are in tact if this doesn't solve the problem you may have dead outputs. If there is hissing coming from the speakers check your audio source to make sure it is feeding sound to your amplifier without looking its hard to say in these case's there's a lot to go wrong
