Question about Dual Audio Players & Recorders
I tried the FM radio and it sounds great. I am still getting sound from the record player but much lower than my other equipment that's hooked up. Any thoughts on how to get the level of the record player a higher volume, and more full?

Record players have a phono output that is much lower level than other audio equipment. If your receiver has a phono input that will have a preamp to adjust the level. Or your turntable may have a switch between phone o or line level and that would increase the volume as well. Most audio signals are line level but phonos are a magnetic signal that is much weaker and needs to be Amplified by a preamp in your receiver or in the unit itself.

Testimonial: "that makes perfect sense. there is only a tape input on this amp, but I already tried it. The dual does not have an option to change the setting, I do have a collection of amps - if I find one with a phono jack that should solve the issue?"

hey i also had this problem, i don't know the name of these but they are basically plugs that you have to block output from the front rear and center speakers of the white/red cables... sry for bad description but its on the left side when looking at the back of the receiver, while all of the other speaker wires should be hooked up to the right with the twisting knobs... it took me forever to find this out but yeah it was a simple fix

I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:
I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...
Hope this helps...

I upgraded my HK AVR 20II and ran into the same problem when I tried to hook the old unit up out in my garage.
Luckily I remember that on the rear there is a pre-out RCA port (L/R) and a Main-In port that are intended to be to/from an equalizer/amplifier. These come jumpered out of the box, but I had been using an equalizer so the jumpers were long lost.
Assuming you also have no amp/eq you are using, just connect the Pre-Out to the Main-In using a standard M/M RCA cable and you will be in business. (turn the volume down first!)

Ensure that your speakers are connected to the terminals that you have your speaker selector switch turned to.
Then check that you have your device, whether it be a CD or DVD player, or turntable, plugged into the correct input and that you also have the correct input selected on the receiver.
