Returned items with minor packaging defects fall under this category. Just press the info button on the remote to switch to sound decoder mode. All Dolby® Digital decoders can also decode Dolby® ProLogic sound tracks. For only a bit more money, you can have it all. This is only a mild inconvenience because I can just do analog audio and use the 5. You can select to display input, surround sound mode, and sound decoder, I think.
Reviving an old thread, I know! Step Then, select the Basic Menu. My country, classic rock and classical music sound full, loud if need be and very clear. First this unit does sound great and has some really good features. Is there still no resolution to this problem? I was having ground loop issues with my old Yamaha receiver so I wanted something that could accept more than two digital connections. Very easy to use, set up, and customize.
Sweet sweet sound from everywhere - most enjoyable. If you are still experiencing problems, then continue to the next step. So, while my setup experience was less disruptive, the Yamaha still loses points with me for this type of terminal configuration. Their receivers have never disappointed. There is no onscreen display, requiring you to use only the front-panel display to scroll through the speaker-size and level adjustments. How interesting that two readers can reach such different conclusions! I'm actually hearing instruments I never noticed after all these years.
What you have to do is put a 1 in front of your 4-digit code, making your code a 5-digit code. It will only cycle through all the speakers twice. Clear mids and highs for such inexpensive speakers --- the bass is a bit boomy and muddy, but you can't have everything at this price. But after lowering the mid range frequencies and boosting the low and high frequencies, the sound quality was vastly improved. Step If problems persist, then the receiver needs to be taken to an authorized service center for more extensive testing. Repeat this until you have tested all of your speakers.
It is possible the remote may not support your equipment and you will have to replace with compatible remote. However after a few tweaks, the sound is quite impressive. The comments below say this problem was going to be elevated and perhaps Comcast and Yamaha would compare notes and divulge the code. There's absolutely no excuse for excluding this feature. Other Thoughts: If you are like me and spent way over your budget on your speaker system just get this inexpensive receiver to offset the price. Except for slightly audible subwoofer clipping on extreme bass content, distortion was never an issue.
Four Scene buttons automatically activate several operations with a single command, such as switching inputs and surround formats. I agree that if they just add auto calibration feature for model sold in North America , this receiver would score high and it will be much easier to use for its targeted customers: entry level. It adds a whole new dimension to gaming. Another set of technologies improve the browsing experience and personalize it. Tannoy's sounded so good I purchased a couple of Tannoy Murcury M15's closer enough for voice matching - same early 1990's era , added an entry level Velodyne Impact mini and a Paradigm center.
Pros: I got this for my outdoor entertainment center. While I tend to agree with the reviewer, I think some information in this review is inaccurate. But one button can't be two buttons. To keep the cost down, however, there are significant compromises, such as the lack of an onscreen display and auto calibration for an easier and faster setup. Reviewing the Sony required me to completely rewire my system to accommodate bare-wire cables. I have a higher-end Onkyo unit which I use for home theater.
So the Value rating seems low, doesn't it? This made installation and setup even easier. If price is a major consideration, then you're not going to be disappointed by the audio quality for the money spent. Yamaha remote codes have been pretty much the same for 20 years. Anyway, it's my first home theater system---I love how it sounds----and more importantly so does She----which is very important, as I received more than a few Glances and Raised Eyebrows as the large, heavy, expensive-looking boxes o' speakers arrived in a steady flow for about a month as I collected the system in serial fashion as Newegg put them on Sale. Plays music flawlessly I have a pretty good ear but not a super-picky aficionado. You can hook up more expensive speakers, of course, to this unit, and get even better results. With all the digital connections I now have everything but my Wii hooked up digitally.
They used it in their budget receivers many years ago when they first introduced their auto setup feature. But since I was not able to find appropriate working cheap one, I've opened the box looking what is connected to this Remote In. The Yamaha benefited from the fact that I replaced the Sony with it and didn't have to do any additional wiring. I got this not expecting too much, given its rock-bottom price, but I was pleasantly surprised both by the wealth of features and settings and the sound quality. Functionality issues beyond signs of use should be disclosed in product description.
