Question about Onkyo TX-SR601 Receiver

1 Answer

Onkyo HT-R510 I have an Onkyo HT-R510 that is no longer functioning correctly. I purchased it as a home theater in a box, and have not changed the original configuration from the years that it was working fine. The issue is that the speakers are functioning intermittently. The issue moves from speaker to speaker, and when disconnecting the leads, stays with the source and not the speaker. Also, the combination of correctly functioning speakers changes. As of yesterday, only the left rear speaker functioned. This system has 3 front and 3 rear speakers, in addition to the subwoofer. I suspect that the issue lies inside of the receiver. I did open the receiver and clean it using compressed air, but this did not change the performance, and truth be told, it wasn't all that dirty inside the box. Do you have a recommendation as to what I can check next?

Have you tried to reset it to factory defaults yet? If it has a vcr button on the front, then hold the vcr button and press power...it should say reset on the front. Might not help, but worth a try.

SOURCE: no surround sound

So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! If you have the room for them to run free and loud, keep the 901's in service. Get them a good amplifier because any multichannel receiver can't deal with their special EQ needs and still drive conventional speakers for the other channels properly.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great! Get a receiver that has has 5.1 analog Outputs so you could drive up to 6 external amplifiers if you want to (I drive 4). Then you can draw off the Front L&R to a separate amp for the 901's and the 'other' (lesser) speakers can live on the receiver's native amplifiers.

A separate multi-channel amp for the 901's was my solution. Because I can run each channel independently to an external amp, I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers (DBX DB-SW 15's) and the Rear Surround channel (Bose 301), with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center (Kenwood 777's) and Surround speakers (Bose 301's) from its own amps.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Multi-CH Receiver L&R Audio Out ***) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.


Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Any modern AV Receiver with the pre-requisite analog outputs should work. Since you have to buy a power amp for your 901 front channels anyway the receiver need not be a powerhouse. Look for features and lots of connections for digital and analog devices. I lean toward coaxial digital connectors because A) they take standard >> and cheap << audio cables; and B) they can be shared with Y-connectors if you're careful to have only one digital device turned on at a time. Optical SP/DIF is an expensive farce to get into your wallet.

For DVD/Cable Box/Blu-Ray look for multiple HDMI or component connections. Again, length and cable cost made me look at the component connections vs HDMI and I was pleased that I can't see the difference even with HD programming from my cable box. It's all great.

SOURCE: Rear surround speakers quit working from my Onkyo

It looks like the audio output was changed on the player so that it doesn't output 5.1. Enter the setup menu on the player and change DTS to output DTS instead of what be labled as stereo or L/R and Dolby Digital to output Dolby Digital instead of whatever else it is set to.

SOURCE: Dear Sir, I have purchased Onkyo

It would be better for me to advice you if at least you did mention the price range so that I can refer you between your budget for the same. Since your Onkyo Unit is 5.1, I would highly recommend you to get a 5.1 channel Speaker for the best output and performance. If you prefer a high-end for home, then you can check out this Logitech's Z5500 (Click Here). The price is around $359 and the performance is excellent.

If you would just want to play music and songs at home, I would recommend this Logitech Z506 (Click Here), it's a Surround Sound Speaker and the price is about $100.
Both the machines are compatible with your Onkyo Tx-SR308.
From other brands like "Creative" you can check out here (Click Here)
Still more here, but don't get the Wireless or USB.

If you have problem or if you need further help, please let me know.

Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Intermittent speaker performance - receiver issue - not a speaker issue


Matt,

Have you checked/cleaned the leads on each speaker as one bad lead or speaker can pull/push extra power from/to other speakers causing shorts, this is likely not the case but could be the easy fix. Try cutting one speaker out at a time rotating which one is disconnected to see if this fixes the issue and possibly points out either a bad speaker or connection.

We have "HT R670" and "HT R360" A/V Receivers with questions regarding Universal Remotes and Android Apps.


The Onkyo App will not work with the HT-R670. This receiver is part of the HT-S6200 Home Theater package and is not network compatible. You might be able to use the Logitech Harmony Hub and app or another remote control app paired with an IR repeater pointing at the receiver. Some universal remotes may support changing the inputs on the receiver. However, I don't know of any specific model that will work. The Logitech Harmony remotes are probably the most likely to support the Input button; it may take programming a specific button to match the receiver's Input function. If you need a replacement for the original remote, one source is https://www.amazon.com/OEM-Onkyo-Remote-Control-HT-S6200/dp/B0137R62H2 . The manual for the HT-S6200 is available here: http://www.intl.onkyo.com/downloads/manuals/pdf/ht-s6200_manual_e.pdf .

I can't find an Onkyo HT-R360 listed even as part of home theater system. There is an Onkyo HT-RC360. The manual for that is http://redirect.onkyousa.com/redirect_service.cfm?type=own_manuals&file=SN29400649_HT-RC360_En_web.pdf . While this model has a network connection, it is not compatible with the Onkyo app either.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Remote control failure with Onkyo HT-SR800


If you have several audio/video devices, which is probably the case if you have this system, you might consider buying a Logitech Harmony All in One remote.

I got one as a present - it now controls all my devices intelligently and is fully programmable to switch all boxes to the correct settings for a particular activity with one button. It connects to a pc with a simple but sophisticated GUI to set up, and codes for hundreds of devices are available and automatically downloaded.

Brilliant, and my wife can now use our systems without having to ask me what to do! It even has an on screen help function.
