Re: Do all receivers sound the same?

I replaced my prior Denon AVR 4311 with a Pioneer SC-LX89 which is the european counterpart of the Elite-99. I did not change anything else. But I experienced quite an improvement in sound! Even...

Re: Pioneer Elite SC-89 9.2-Channel AV Receiver Review Discussion Thread

After first setting up, I'd like to share first impressions with you:
MCACC calibration differs profoundly from AudysseyPRO. Measurements are taken from but one position instead of up to eight. Yet...

Re: Pioneer Elite SC-89 9.2-Channel AV Receiver Review Discussion Thread

I've just installed a European SC-LX89 in my living room (as a replacement for a Denon AVR-4311). Can anyone affirm that this is the Europe-tuned equivalent to the American Elite SC-89. From the...

Re: what am I doing wrong? No sound in digital channels: Panasonic TV & home theater

Just a guess: did you set anything at your TV or HT concerning HD-audio format, e.g. DTS or Dolby or Bitstream or PCM? To me, it seems to be a data format compatibility issue rather than a wiring...

Re: Problems using Mac Computers and REW

I haven't used that calibration feature, either. But as far as I understand from hints in REW, you can do your own calibration and generate such file yourself. This option can be found via...

Re: Problems using Mac Computers and REW

This is AFAIK quite unlikely since it is rather tricky to discover the respective system setting panel. Plus, it does only offer settings other than Stereo when a capable device is digitally...

Re: Problems using Mac Computers and REW

I can only give a little advice concerning your item (1):

REW comes without an official developer signature. That's why one has to explicitly allow it execution. The easiest way is to change the...

Re: Onkyo HT-R380 receiver w/two subwoofers

Many active subwoofers offer high level input and output. You might run your front speaker lines from your AVR into the high level input posts of such a SW and then connect the speakers to its high...

Re: Denon AVR-X4000: Lots of noise from rear speakers with Dolby Digital

If the problem really only occurs with the DolbyDigital/ComCast source, I'd guess that it stems from that source. Which way have you connected the receiver to the AVR? HDMI? TosLink?, analog stereo?...

Re: Using RCA and HDMI at the same time

Obviously, cashint is right.
There are (at least) three options left:
1) you buy a DVI-to-component-cable and connect your video that way. When set to component in, your TV is expecting Audio in...

Re: Using RCA and HDMI at the same time

Can you send me a link to the TV's manual or at least tell me it's exact model name and number so I can look for it? Maybe I can help you find the right setting on your TV set. Go

Re: Using RCA and HDMI at the same time

Your TV is expecting audio input via HDMI. Does your TV sport a DVI-Input? It's quite common with the more current models. In that case, the TV would "know" that audio input must come via a different...

Re: Freezing video on Mac

There's a basic difference between output via HDMI and via network. When using HDMI, the graphics hardware of the mac is important and may even be the bottleneck. You may try to choose a lower...

Re: input selection for Gaming

My guess would be that in a lower end TV it would be most useful to use game mode for at least two reasons: first - its video processing capabilities may well be worse than that of the console and...

Re: input selection for Gaming

Game mode would be the correct setting, let me explain:
Game mode is a setting where there is usually as little video (and sometimes even audio) processing done as possible. That is important in...

Re: OTA antenna and system set up

According to its manual, the TV doesn't sport HDMI A.R.C., so you need to connect digital audio as you suggested. Since "Viera connect" seems to be just Panasonic's name for HDMI-CEC, you might be...

Re: Sony STR-DN1040 and 5.1 Audio from Cable STB

Are you sure that the source broadcast was not just Stereo or 2.0 Dolby Digital? Not all content is broadcasted 5.1-encoded.
Did you set "Audio - digital out" to "Dolby digital"?

Re: REW Won't Boot - Mac OSX 10.8.4

Did you re-install REW from a current download? (current REW version is 5.00)
In case you do a Re-install it is important that you completely deactivate gatekeeper (temporarily) prior to the first...

Re: Humming

Bad ground is the most probable reason. Problem gets probably worse because you created a ground loop as follows: Box ground to AVR ground via rca cable, AVR to TV ground via HDMI shield, Box to TV...

According to the manual (page 24 in the German version) you can assign variable audio-inputs to the HDMI-inputs. Have you tried that yet?

I admire Bose for how they achieve that much sound out of so small speakers. They're superior in this field. But ultimately, those sophisticated psychoacoustic techniques can only partially...
