    havve previously connected 7 preout cables from Onkyo to 7 inputs to Emotiva without success. The Onkyo does have multichannel preouts. so that it supposedly can be used as a preprocessor. Best, Emmanuel.

  • nolivivit May 02, 2008

    There are actually eight preouts on the Onkyo and seven of these are attached to the seven input channels of the Emotiva and it sounds great, but I just cannot control the volumes with the master volume control. When the Onkyo is used srictly as a receiver without any conection to the Emotiva, the master volume control functions normally. What I don't understand is how the Harmony controller can control the volume when the Onkyo is used as a preprocessor. Thanks for your thoughts and advice. Emmanuel.

In order for this to work as you expect, you must connect the amp to a pre-amp out jack on the receiver. I don't think that the 875 has that option. If you are connected to the tape out, that is a fixed line level output that by passes the volume control.

    If you want to connect amplifier anduse the AV receiver solely as a preamp, connect the ampto the PRE OUT jacks, and connect all speakers and the subwoofer to the power amplifier. If you have a powered
    subwoofer, connect it to the AV receiver’s PRE OUT
    SUBWOOFER jack.

    Check this as well

    • Speaker cables may have come undone. Turn off your system and check the cables, and tighten the amplifier and speaker binding posts.
    • Damaged audio cable.
    • The preamplifier volume level is low for the channels concerned. Recheck the preamplifier calibration procedure.
    • A preamplifier Mute switch may be on, or an external processor loop or a tape monitor loop is engaged.
    • Check that your preamplifier or source is running the correct surround sound mode. Maybe it is set for 2-channel stereo when you were expecting 5.1 surround sound.
    • Check in case any missing channels have been turned off in a preamplifier setup menu. For example, the center amplifier channel will not receive a signal if the preamplifier has been set to “Phantom.”
    • The Auto/on/off switch on the MPS-1 might be in the off position.

    Here is the link for the amps manual: emotiva

    Do a hard reset to the system, shut the power down leave it turned off for an hour this will remove all the static power from the components and then the master volume control can be used in a normal state.

The volume control only goes up to +18 on my onkyo t sv919thx. can't hear it


Sounds like the volume controller is faulty. Did you use the master volume knob on the front to increase the power rather than the remote?

Here is your manual. It sure is a complicated piece of kit. They have three service centres on the last page.

The recommended settings for a mofet car amp 50.4 , theres a few knobs not sure what they should be turned to


The gain knob is used to control how much the volume (output) of the amp increases with each increase in volume on the deck (installed in the dash). This is used to match speakers running of your deck. Other knobs are probably for a crossover (labelled in Hz). This controls what frequencies are passed to the speakers connected to the amp. A Highpass (HPF) crossover passes all frequencies above what the knob is set for. A Lowpass (LPF) pass all frequencies below what the knob is set for. A HPF is typically used when the amp is powering component or full range speakers to keep the ultra low frequencies (anything below 90Hz) from going to theses speakers. A LPF is used when the amp is connected to a sub. Subs dont handle higher frequencies very well.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like 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

Mitsubishi M-VR900 remote


Harmony by Logitech; they have models ranging from 70-400 based on your needs. They are 100% programmable, meaning any function your unit has, it will duplicate. PC software is very user friendly. You can set this remote to control up to 14 different devices and one button control. They even pass the Wife/Mother, & in-Law tests.. They have a substantial Database of products on file so you don't have to have your original remote. If you have problems while programming, they will actually answer their phones 14 hours a day. Why do I like these so much? Price/Performance/User friendly & I program all remotes from Universal to Crestron. Hope this helps. If you have any questions, reply & I will answer for you & help any way I can.

two 8 ohm speakers in parallel is 4 ohms.
if series 16 ohms.a high resistance will just produce less power.
too low a number can activate the speaker protect,or blow the amp.
radio shack sell wall mounted speaker controls,but 5 watt max.
the best thing is to run 2 amplifiers.one for in ,2 for out
speaker a and b on the amp parallel the speakers.
if you run 2 sets of 4ohm speakers,the amplifier load will be 2 ohms,and overheat the amp.4 8 ohm speakers,gives a 4 ohm load

Harmony 880 does not change input with Onkyo HT-R520 amplifier


You will either have to use your Onkyo remote to teach the Harmony those functions or try one of the similar model receivers in the Harmony software. I had to chose a similar DVD player in the list in order to get my Harmony to play nice with my DVD player.
