Anyone who could lend some advice, I would greatly appreciate it. I recently switched from a Sony STR-685 to a Denon 3208. Here's my system overview.
Front Speakers: RT55i
Those are my components and speakers. I'm hooking up my DVD player via a digital coaxial cable. My xbox is connected by the Monster optical cable to the second optical in port. I'm using the component switching to connect my xbox and dvd player by component cables. As for my sub, I'm using the standard preout using a monster bass coax cable. The problem is still that every now and then I get some horrible distortion and buzzing. I'm using my dvd player as my CD player for the time being also and when I play music CDs, I don't get good bass response at all from the sub. Movies are pretty good, but I still feel that some bump is gone. My other receiver seemed to put out a more distinct bass response especially when playing music-as of now, my main speakers are carrying more bass than my sub and I have tried switching my front speakers to small, but that only resulted in even less bass response. I can't figure out what the problem could be in either of these areas. Just a note, I am bywiring my RT55i's.
