Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Pioneer VSX-501 Audio/Video Stereo Receiver. At a very low volume setting it sounds okay, but if you increase the volume the sounds starts cutting off and on (with an audible click coming from the receiver). The higher the volume the worse it becomes. I believe someone may have connected speakers of the wrong impedance. If so, could it cause this to happen? I currently have 8 ohm speakers connected to it which should be okay. How can the problem be repaired?

Generally speaking of course, you would never direct the signal from an amplified output into a line level input, however with headphones the level of amplification required is so small that the signal will typically be even less what a line level input is expecting. So do you want to headphone output signal further?

Basically, if you connect a headphone output signal to a several thousand ohm line level input it will behave pretty much like a line level signal.

Therefore, I would try it as is first to see if your results are acceptable. The output level should range somewhere within what a line level range should be although you might have to turn the volume up more than you would have to if it were a line level out.

Just start with the volumes all the way down, then turn your monitor levels somewhere in the middle and then turn up the keyboard level and see how good the sound is.

You may be perfectly happy with the results, otherwise you could try a headphone amp, but be careful with the volumes

Here's a good article on this topic which should address any concerns:

Its because the pioneer does not display menu options through hdmi. You have to hook up basic yellow composite to monitor out.

Rear speakers on vsx1122 not playing, they tested okay


Manually change your surround settings for your satellite box input. Your box may not be putting out a signal that the receiver auto-detects as a surround sound signal, thus it just plays in stereo.

How do i conect my tv to this receiver


That would depend on the capabilities of the TV.

The VSX-D509 manual is avalailable for free at retrevo.com.
http://www.retrevo.com/s/Pioneer-VSX-D509S-Receivers-review-manual/id/385ci970/t/1-2/

The receiver only needs a simple composite monitor output using a standard RCA cable so you can use the TV to operate it through its menus.

My TV has many video inputs of the various technologies, so I connect each Hi-Def video source's video directly to the TV and run the audio from them to the appropriate inputs on the Receiver.

If you feel the need to have the TV's minimalist audio run into the receiver just run an RCA pair from its audio output to any available analog input, but the sound will be limited to analog stereo. In the TV's setup find a setting for the audio output and select whatever closely resembles a 'fixed' level so you can mute or turn its volume down without affecting the audio out to the receiver.

Sound cuts out


No, this sounds like a speaker problem to me.
It sounds like the voice coils in your speaker(s) have been fried.
What happens is the part that is burnt does not funtion, but as you increase the volume/voltage the speaker "jumps" foward to a section of voice coil that is not as damaged.
Check your speakers!

Turned stereo on and turned volume all the way up and could just verly hear it comeing out of the speakers


assuming same issue does not happen if you connect a headphone to your receiver - can you check your speakers' connections - it should be straight not crossed for each and in case speakers are properly connected to your receiver - can you test the audio/sound with internal test audio rather than connected device (ie player) - if this is ok and there is no sound/audio volume settings on connected device - change the input the device connected and test again.

Universal home theater remote for Pioneer VSX-305 audio/video stereo receiver


Don't spend a lot of money for a universal remote. Radio Shack has some good buys. I think you are the same person who is having problems with a 305. Get rid of it. You can make a quantum leap at Amazon for less than $200 for a Pioneer.
