Question about Denon AVR-2803 Receiver

Open Question

Denon AVR-2803 Dolby EX poor vocal sound .

All of a sudden, my Denon AVR-2803, when in the Dobly EX mode, the voice sound all low and muddy. Also, the Neo-6 selection disappear. It seems to work OK, under Matrix, Stereo, Direct etc.

I try to reset the microprocessor as per the direction in the owner's manual, which is to hold down A and B speaker button and turn the power ON. But the Power button doesn't seem to turn on.

Any suggestion on what is the issue with the Dolby EX mode?

    I took the Denon 2803 to the repair shop. They rewelded the DSP unit to be more sturdy.



    Also, I discover the English instruction manual on how to reset the microprocessor is wrong.



    On the original Japanese language instuction: it is

    -- turn the unit off

    ----pull the power cord out of the wall socket

    ----push in the A and B speaker button, and hold it....and

    ---reconnect the power cord into the wall socket.



    that will reset the microprocessor



    afterward, everything works fine.

How can i connect my denon 5805ci with my new tv 4k & 3D sony 65"


Are you sure that model is HDMI v1.4 compliant? I know my Denon 8508 is not so I use optical outs to get 5.1 surround sound.

Denon Avr-3200 Dolby Digital not working


What I suggest is that you reset the receiver as you mentioned. If you look in your owner's, there will be a procedure that says, "Return to factory default, or Reset" I believe you have it set wrong, or are not providing it with Dolby Digial signal. Dolby Digital, is not processed by the DSP board(Digital Sound Processor), which handles the THX, Neo, and every other format. Dolby Digital, is one of the earliest form of Home Theater. It has to be processed through the 2 RCA jacks(left and right). It is really not used anymore, in light of Dolby Pro Logic, THX and others.

Voice volume is low compared to background music volume on AVR-2808CI


Could be a number of things.
Most likely your surround sound mode. Some people dont like Dolby. Try to switch to 5 channel stereo.
Other option is to turn the center channel speaker channel volume up. Voices and dialog come from the center channel speaker in Dolby modes. Post back if you need instructions.
Please rate my solution.

Denon AVR-2803 Zone 2 sound source


You have to switch your remote into Zone 2 Mode. It will be an option on your remote. Once you put it in that mode, you can change the source just as you would Zone one.

My AVR 2803 shuts down when volume is at medium or above.


too big a speaker load,unit sensors shut unit down when speaker impedance gets too low . and draws too much current at hi volume.A bad woofer or tweeter voice coil burned by sudden excess volume can cause this,also partially shorted speaker wires.
