Setting up my Onkyo tx-sr577


Novice Member
Hi Peeps,

I'm a newbie to the these forums and the world of home cinema and have just installed the following:

Samsung LE40A856 TV
Samsung BD-P3600 Blue-Ray
Onkyo TX-SR577
Jamo A102HCS5

I everything set up and want to check that I have done things correctly.

I have the blue ray plugged into the amp with HDMI and have set the audio output to be bitstream(audiophile).

I have the amp connected to the tv with HDMI and an optical cable back to the amp from the tv for sound.

I ran the auto setup and everything seems to be ok but It feels like the sound is a little muffled / muted coming out of the speakers.

Faffing about with some settings last night I seem to have stopped sound coming out of the surround speakers.

I'm intending on resetting the amp and running the setup again this evening.

I would appreciate some advice on any of the amps settings in order to make sure I'm not missing anything stupid.

Thanks in advance

Av amps rarely sound great straight out of the box - so try experimenting with the various calibration settings. As long as your speakers are wired correctly with good cables, then make sure they are set to small.

Make sure speaker distances are correct, manually adjust if necessary.
