Merry Christmas I suspect this has been asked before though I can't seem to find a definitive answer - in any case I suspect there is an element of me not understanding fully. We watched Super 8 from Lovefilm last night played from a Sony S370 blu-ray player through the 605 into a 5.1 Q-Acoustics configuration. The sound was underwhelming! The dvd options included a multitude of different language Dolby 5.1 outputs. The only English option was 7.1 Dolby TrueHD. I suppose I could have brushed up on my schoolboy german and selected their 5.1 option - I did listen to the celebrated train crash using it which provided a clear indication of what had been missed by using the 7.1 English option. The amp defaults to Dolby D and there is no output to the surround speakers. Having persevered this morning with less alcohol in my system the only option that produces sound from all speakers is the All Channel Stereo which even to my less than sensitive hearing doesn't sound right. Page 63 of the manual which displays the various listening modes merely confuses me. I have noticed a similar problem with DTS-HD outputs on other dvd's. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a misplaced setting somewhere? Do I need to swap the surround speaker cables to the rear position on the amp? Do I need to drink more? Or is the 605 already obsolete? Many thanks!
