Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

2 Answers

Zone 2 audio output is for analog only? The only reason I bought this receiver was to be able to play my ipod on our outdoor speakers.

David is wrong. My Onkyo is the same way. The receiver will only provide a signal to zone 2 speaker outputs from analog sources. I assume this was because of concerns with digital rights management, which caused some odd decisions for a while by hardware manufacturers. Newer receivers should not have this problem.

Speaker outputs at this state of the technology are always analog.

The iPod would use an INPUT like any other audio device. Once it's attached you can do whatever you want with its audio.

Your Zone 2 can be configured to play just about any input.

Is there anyway to get an amplified signal to my zone two speakers without an additional amplifier? Should I be using the Speaker "B" outputs?


Check your speaker setup menu to make sure that zone 2 is enabled. Also, a lot of receivers only allow analog inputs to be used for zone 2, so if you are using something like hdmi, or optical than this might be the problem.

What brand/model receiver do you have? Most receivers will only output an analog signal to zone 2. You cannot use hdmi or optical inputs.

Pioneer VSX 1020K - Zone 2 Setup


I referred to a similar zone 2 arrangement for a Yamaha receiver. It shows a separate amplifier and notes that only analog signals are sent to zone 2. The analog output from a source must be connected to the analog input on your Pioneer unit for zone 2 to work. Your outdoor music environment will be limited to left and right front speakers and...alas...no surround

If your satellite box is connected using a digital cable to the 601 receiver you won't get any sound through zone 2.Zone 2 can process only analogue sound ( inputs ).

I have a Marantz 7.1 AV receiver (sr5500) and I run a 5.1 set up for home theatre and use the 2 extra channels to run a pair of outdoor stereo speakers... When I first set it up I also found I could not get a digital signal output, only analog, after reading the manual(!) I discovered that it can only output an analog signal...so I have used the phono outputs on my blu-ray player into the CD input of the AV amp and play CDs outside through this and it also outputs the optical digital signal into the AV amp through the DVD input...my iPod also plays through a dock and it's analog output to the speakers outside through another (CD-R) anolog input on the amp... Hope this helps

Yamaha RX-V3800 receiver zone two audio problems


To get audio with this set up also hooked up analog audio RCA cables for the audio for each piece of equipment for 2 channel out put. Zone 2 will not out put a digital signal and this receiver will not down convert a audio signals to analog if using digital audio hook-ups.

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers


Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

No output to Zone 2 from preout to 2nd power amp for second room speakers


OK, From what I am understanding is that you both are trying to uilize a digital audio source (HDMI cables are digital audio only) and hence this is the problem. You can only use an analog audio source (connection) to utilize the audio output to zone 2. A simple soultion is to use the analog audio in conjuction with the digital. Connect the digital (HDMI, Optical, Coax) to the main zone and the left and right audios to zone 2.
