    Default Onkyo TX-NR609

    werthliving.com

    Hi,

    I have recently bought Onkyo TX-NR609 and there are a couple of things i'm not sure how to do. First is the volume, in order to get decent volume level i have to go up to 50+, any ideas how i can change this?
    Also, how can i connect the unit to the internet wirelessly, what do i need a norma wireless adaptor?

    Thanks.

    Based on the description from Amazon, yes, you need an accessory that did not come with your receiver.

    Onkyo's UWF-1 Wireless LAN adaptor removes unwanted cables. This small, optional unit is worth way more than its tiny price. Connect the UWF-1 to the USB port on any compatible 2011 Onkyo network receiver, and bring your music through your wireless router into your Onkyo system. Now internet radio and audio files stored on your PC can be played back with the superior fidelity of your main Onkyo system — with no cable clutter. A sensible and inexpensive solution.

    Regarding your volume issues. Not real sure. Maybe Onkyo's are simply calibrated differently in terms of where the volume knob must be set. Otherwise - did you already run Audyssey? It's very likely that Audyssey set the individual channel levels too low for your liking.....resulting in you wantiing to crank the volume knob higher to get adequate sound. Do you think that's the case?

    lots of people feel they must turn the volume knob up very far to get their desired results, I think it is just an on yo thing. OP does the 609 have an Ethernet port on the back?? if so check this out monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=105&cp_id=10521&cs_id=1052102&p_id=8070&seq=1&format=2. this can be set up as a wireless bridge and works great for cheap.

    In regards to the volume issues, you need to enable and setup a few options in the receiver via the on-screen (TV) 'setup' menu (assuming your receiver is hooked up to your TV via an HDMI cable)...otherwise you have to go through the setup via the front panel display on the receiver (a pain).

    1. Make sure you setup your speaker system dynamics by running the Audyssey MultiEQ auto calibration routine.
    2. After the testing, manually change any speaker crossover settings to '80Hz/THX' if you have any that are indeed THX certified.
    3. Go into the receivers main 'setup' menu (as seen on your TV) and choose 'Source Setup'.
    4. Now select 'Audyssey' and then from within that menu, turn ON or verify the setting 'Dynamic EQ' is turned ON and not OFF.
    5. Now select '0db' for the 'Reference Level' and 'Light' for the Dynamic Volume Compression setting.
    6. Back out of the Souce Setup menu and navigate to the 'Intellivolume' settings and raise the defaut gain to '+10dB'
    7. Go back and verify the 'Maximum Volume' setting within the 'Miscellaneous' menu options is set to OFF.

    The biggest gain in percieved amplitude or volume will be achieved by enabling the Dynamic Volume and Compression settings.

    You can also manually boost the bass output of your subwoofer (pending you have one) by manually setting the front main speaker crossover option to FULL RANGE or FULL BAND from within the 'Speaker Configuration' menu. You now will have the option to turn on/off the double bass feature which should be shown when you scroll down within that page.

    I had the exact same question you did in regards to 'low volume'. Only after messing around with all the options did I realize the Compression setting along with the Dynamic Volume setting make a big difference in the volume issue.

    Hope that helps....post back if you need more info.

    Personally, I think it's silly to simply not like the volume setting because it doesn't read "30" or below. Who freakin' cares? If it sounds great at "60", then so be it, IMO. Besides, the volume goes all the way up to 99 or something so relatively speaking it's really not that far up. If you don't like looking at the high numbers, if it messes with your OCD too much, just change the volume meter to the db setting.
    @ n9nu, isn't the rule of thumb the less processing the better? So, wouldn't I get much "truer" sound by simply dealing with having the volume at 50 or 60, versus activating all the compression, dynamic circuitry? Doesn't that just "muddy the waters" so to speak?
    I tried Audessey, and I actually have left it on the manual configuration I did for weeks now. I believe I prefer it. Who knows, though...

    Don't turn you intelivolume up all the way. That is a trim level adjustment for each individual source and there is no accurate way to adjust it without a sound level meter and some test tones from the source. It may indeed need to be turned up but without a meter and tones FROM THE SOURCE your are shooting in the dark at best and at worst completely throwing off Audyessy dynamic EQ.
