Question about Sony STR-V555ES Receiver

1 Answer

Poor voice track but great sound.

Sound is great except that voice track is very weak. This is only true in Surround sound mode with surround sound sources. Checked center channel and other portions of the sound track are audible in the center channel so it is working otherwise just fine. Have checked EQ settings which seem fine. Also even at low to medium volumn the surge protection will go off with lound noises.

Have you tried the "Simulated" surround setting?

If you don't get sound in "Simulated" mode then you have probably lost the surround channels.

If you do get sound then your "Media"
is not recorded with a surround "Track". or the surround "Processor" may have issues that need to go to the repair shop.

DVD player only has background sound (songs, sound effects) but no dialogue when people are speaking

On 5:1 surround sound the voices are only directed to the center front speaker. If you do not have one, but your sound system has been set to surround sound (5:1 or 7:1) in its menus, this will happen. Use the menus on your sound system to set it to '2 channel' or 'Stereo' then all of the available sound on the DVD will be sent to the 2 front speakers.

Plying blu ray, voices not reproduce only surround channels!

Make sure you have a center speaker hooked up as most voice tracks come through the center channel.

The sound coming out of the surround sound speakers sounds like it is under water,but sounds great on 2 channel mode

Surround modes usually process the sound to make it appropriate for the direction from which you'll hear it (ambience, echo, reverb, spatial cues).

Surrounds are not meant to be listened to alone. Does the sound from the surrounds mesh with or enhance the other channels? Perhaps a look in the manual may help, if we knew what electronics we're talking about.

When I play a DVD in the system I can only get the surround sound out of the speakers but no voices. If I play a CD or hook it up to my tv everything is ok.I have tried a number of DVD's and all have the...

sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc..
When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.

With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).

Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.

Have surround sound only when play dvd..

if you have a sat/cable box it may have audio outputs that you can connect to the input of the surround unit or if your tv has an audio uotput it can be connected to the surround unit. The audio outs of the tv may or may not adjust with the tv volume. This will not produce a true surround signal because th tv does not output a true surround signal. But yo can adjust the surround unit to get a nice sound.

No surround sound from my Denon 3805

well as long as all signals are routed through the Denon your on the right track, now what else you have to do is connect all devices to the reciever do not loop one device through another. Also you have to try the different surround fields to hear the one you like the best for music I use 5Ch stereo for movies the surround field varies based on the type of movie

DVD player and receiver will not play a dvd in surround sound ?

The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?

I can not get any sound from the surround sound system for my tv

Make sure you have a Dolby surround signal going in. Play a dvd and see. You won't get any sound from rear speakers from over the air broadcasts. Try changing the mode to phantom or 3-ch to get faux surround for tv signals. Only Dolby gives true surround and that is only avail. on movies. good luck
