    Onkyo 609 help needed.

    Hello all,

    I am curious to know how people have set up their Onkyo 609's for the best quality sound. I feel that when i'm watching films on Sky that i'm not getting the best out of the system, i.e. i need to turn it up when the action calms down to hear speech.

    A friend who has a Yamaha said his receiver automatically adjusts the sound setting to whatever he is watching (bluray/sky/dvd etc) to give the best output but I don't know if that is possible with the Onkyo?

    any help much appreciated.

    cheers

    Maybe if you had gone for a decent brand like Sony, you wouldn't be having problems...

    Try AVForums for a response.

    a what? An oinkyo?

    its not just the amp, do you have a good centre speaker as this is usually the down point of most surround systems

    Q Acoustics 2000 system.

    I plugged in an optical last night but unsure if i've got the settings correct in both the sky box and the receiver. I want the 5.1 surround sound through the optical with the HDMI for visual.
    Any help with settings much appreciated.

    newbie here with surround sound

    have you completed the microphone calibration?

    also the instructions detail on how to assign your optical input to an output on page 45
