  7. General Service and Technical Information
    Bought the above receiver. Worked well. Now, if it goes on, it soon turns off and there is a red light. More often, it will cycle on, then off. Have looked online and tried all suggestions - all to no avail. Still under warranty. I just chatted with Denon rep, and she gave me a list...

I have narrowed down amp/processing to a Denon AVR-4520ci or eMotiva UMC-200 with XPA power. I am looking for clean power, plenty of headroom, and ample room...

  12. Home Audio Acoustics
    I have attached a drawing of my AV/Living Room, and I was wondering if anyone has some simple suggestions for making the acoustical characteristics any better.

    My Quartet10 kit had been sitting in boxes, antagonizing me, for a couple months now. I finally got around to building the box and getting it all setup. I have to say, I'm not impressed and I want to know if I got a bad kit and how to diagnose my issue. I based my build off of Mike P's build...

    There seems to be a function of this unit to adjust the audio/video time delay. This apparently is to sync the sound track with the picture. Is this for real? I never heard of such an option. Is it common for the sound track to be "off" from the broadcast signal? I have never known this to be...
