    Default How to improve my system for music?

    What I have is in my signature. I like it for HT....seems lacking when I play music. What would you suggest? Upgrade my front L/R to floor standing speakers? Maybe 3 way speakers with a sub in the cab? Do any of you use dual purpose systems or have a separate system for music?

    It seems week on the low end and maybe even a little in the mid range. Highs seem very crisp and clear though. To me it just doesn't sound very full. I tried 2 channel at first but it seemed weak on the low end with just the l/r rt35i. Seems a little better in 5.1 with the sub. The room is just an average sized living room with an open floor plan and small kitchen and dining area off of it. I can measure it tonight to be more specific. If I had to guess the living room area is 20 or 25 ft by 30 ft or so and maybe 25 x 50 if you count the entire space. The source is through a new sony BD player with built in Wi-Fi. Pandora sometimes. Sometimes playing cd's with it. My entire system is connected with HDMI. Cheap ones. Speakers are connected with 14g plain speaker wire. HDMI and speaker wire both came from Home depot if I remember correctly.

    There are an infinite number of things you can do, but they cost money. The more you spend then the better the results. What budget are you willing to spend? Let us help you (spend your money).

    Well, I don't know about all that. There are certainly an infinite amount of different variables involved here and a plethora of bad mistakes resulting in horrid sound can be made with just blowing money at it to get to the goal. Knowing you, I don't think that this was the way you had intended for it to come out. Perhaps you meant to say something along the lines of "The more you have available to spend, then the better your options can be to achieve better results".

    After running audyssey try these settings at your music sources:

    Audyssey - music
    Dynamic EQ - on
    Dynamic volume - light
    Music optimizer - on

    I have an Integra dtr30.3 so I'm assuming you have these setting. I also have the same fronts and rears with a csi3 and psw111.

    Well, to start off, you have a fairly large room there and small speakers, which btw the RT series are built more for HT than music. The sub will have a hard time pressurizing a big room, especially one that's open to another room. You have multiple problems to address, but for starters I would first look at some better front speakers, and better cables. The worlds your oyster depending on budget. Throw out a general ballpark of a budget and we can help you get to where you want to be.

    BTW, have you played with any of the settings in the receiver ?

    I have the same reciever you have the txnr-809. It took me a while to get everything set up correct on the menu side. One thing I can tell you is I change the reciever off of the Dolby mode and turn off the audessy when listening to 2 channel. I also use the Dynamic volume when listening at low to moderate volumes. If you already do this then you are prolly ready for some floor standers. I ran my 2.3's off this reciever for quite a while and they sound great. Just my .02

    Before you decide to throw out too much money, I'd suggest you try to find a solid 2 channel setup and figure out the virtues of such a system. It may not be your cup of tea, but its worth the effort to hear one so you truly know what route you would be better taking. Most people are used to being surrounded by speakers and don't realize that such a setup can suck so many of the nuances of a recording out of the experience.

    There is no wrong way to listen to music, but one must realize there is more than one way to listen to it before throwing money at it IMO.

    The sub seems to do ok for movies. I've always had a regular 2 channel stereo for music before. I still have my old 2 channel stereo but i'm using it in my booth at work. Even the 20 year old sony 2 channel stereo sounds better for music to me. I think what is bothering me is I just don't like music in 5.1. Not really sure why. Maybe because I'm just used to 2 channel. To me it just sounds better. I've only had this receiver for about a month. I'm still playing with the settings and learning what everything does and trying to figure out what works best for different things. This is the first decent a/v reciever I've had and all the bells and whisles and different modes is still confusing to me. The reason I wanted to get a set of rt55i or rt800i was to get bigger front L/R speakers because i'm not happy with this set up for music. I'm starting to think i may be happier going with rt1000i/p, rt2000i/p. Something that will have a subwoofer in the front L/R. As for a budget...I havent really thought about it yet. I won't be buying any new high dollar speakers though. I just can't afford that. I will be in the market for more vintage/used gear. Something along the lines of the models I mentioned...or possibly something similiar if you guys think I'd be better of with something else? I dont really want to spend the money on better speaker cable yet. I've been reading up on it some and when I upgrade I think I will buy quality wire and build my own with quality banana plugs. I'm about to start building a large media center/wall unit and when it's done the living room will get rearranged so I dont want to mess with speaker cables until that is done.

    "Pure" on an AVR usually means all or most signal processing is bypassed. My Pioneer for example, has three settings, Auto Surround which engages all the various HT signal processing i.e. Dolby DTS etc., Direct, which bypasses everything except the subwoofers, and Pure Direct, which bypasses everything. Pure Direct is what I use for 2 channel listening.
    In your case, since you front left and rights are relatively small, you'll need to find the setting with the most direct signal for 2 channel, but keeps the sub in the chain. I would re-visit the owners manual, and review all the various setting your receiver is capable of.

    Mr Natural, I had the same type of problem, wanting more from the music side of things ,movies were impressive but music on the other hand was very weak even going in 2chl or pure direct mode.Now it wasn't the Klipsch smalls I was impressed and liked them better than anything in their class so it was the avr and it's lack of power.The magic happened when I got an Adcom 200 watter and used the preouts on the avr and my music dillema was solved.Still I went on to get a sepeate pre/amp to go full 2 chl. and have it used as is or run a multitdude of sources through the pre such as my i-pod, i-net radio ,tt, cdp.Purists feel 2 chl should be dedicated to just that 1 source and I firmly disagree w/ why limit yourself.On my Yamaha pure direct shuts all nonessential circuits off and concentrates on your front 2

    I would also recommend getting a separate amp to plug into your receiver. Get a 5 channel 200wpc @ 8ohms amp and enjoy. This much power will ensure that all of your speakers are operating to their full potential whether in 5 channel mode or 2. All speakers benefit from more power including bookshelves. And receivers today simply don't have what it takes to power them. Add in more channels and the less power you have for all of them. A separate amp will take care of this problem.

    With this amp in place, you will be all set now and in the future if you choose to upgrade to other speakers.

    Amps to look at:

    FYI - On my receiver, when in stereo mode I have 2.1. You should be able to do that as well.

    I find myself switching the fronts and center between 50hz or 60hz. My surrounds are at 70hz and my subs lpf is 120hz. You need to play around with the settings to dial it in.

    Personally, I don't think you need a bigger amp. I think mine sounds pretty good and I only have 100wpc. But if I had an opportunity to pick up a pair of rt55is. I would jump on it.

    I might also suggest the OP read the manual to his receiver....twice, cover to cover. Get a grasp on what everything does, understand it and ask if you don't. That's the first step to better sound imho.

    I hear ya man, but like I said before, todays receivers have a lot more processing power that the old receivers. More and more like a computer than a piece of audio gear. It can get confusing that's for sure. Take your time, if you don't understand something, just ask.

    Thanks for the help. It is much appreciated. I'll play with my receiver a little more and get to know the settings a little better and go from there.

    Ok. Thanks again for the help everyone. My tx-nr809 came with the owners manual of a disc. I printed all 100 pages and put it in a binder. I've kept it in the living room for quick reference. I ran audyssey again and then double checked the settings. For some reason audyssey was setting the cross over for L/R, center, and Surround all at 40hz. I readjusted them and have the Rt35i set at 50hz since the specs for them say 39hz-26khz. I have the cs245i center set to 60hz since the specs for it say 52hz-26khz. I have the Rt25i surrounds set to 60hz since the specs for those say 50hz-26khz. That in itself seemed to make a big difference in how everything sounds. Now more of the low frequency stuff is going to the sub and not the others. I've been using stereo mode and that keeps the subwoofer active. I've also been turning off the dolby and audyssey like suggested in this thread. Man did it make a world of difference!!! I still want to find a set of Rt55i or Rt800i to use as my mains and then move the others all back one for a 7.1 set up instead of 5.1 and then add another psw505 sub and I think I'll be pretty happy there.

    Glad you found some tweaks to make you happy. I have changed my gear many times in my short audio career and it can get expensive so little tweaks should be explored first. With that said, upgrading speakers is always hard to resist as they offer the biggest improvements IMHO.

    This is why I personally stick with simple easy to use 2 channel receivers...the easier to use, the better imho.

    I started out with receivers and full HT setups. I now only own use two channel systems even for HT. For me, it is simple and it works. I don't have all the surround effects but the dialogue sounds great, bass is tight without being boomy (no sub in my setup), and music tracks sound fantastic. Not to say I will never swap out my gear over time but I doubt it will be for a full HT setup.

    Default the best upgrade anyone can do is treat their room.

    It escapes me...why audiophile types are always saying to throw money at gear...when in truth , treating the room acoustically/correcting problems/mitigating them will have a bigger effect than ANYTHING(yes, anything) else.


    get the room sussed.


    that is the way to go. then get more gear.
