I just acquired a Meridian 561 processor and am having some issues with set-up... Perhaps someone with more experience can shed some light? 1. Setting up for 2 analogue speakers (Meridian actives) only on the Main outputs with the setup as 2.0 A_ _ produces no sound output. If I 'add in' speakers as sides or rears - even tho' they are not physically connected (e.g. 3.0 AA_) then I get sound but with the Main left speaker output level about 20-30% lower than the right. 2. Feed from my 508.24 CD player is fine on analogue input but so far I cannot get a digital input to work - depite setting up the appropriate settings via the PC/RS232 connection. If anyone has any ideas it would be much appreciated! Thanks. S.T.
