TX-NR709 - Poor stereo sound quality
My current system consists of a Panasonic DMP-BDT110 bluray player, Pioneer DA-565A SACD player, Panasonic 50" P50GT30B TV , Pioneer DVR 545HX dvd recorder , sky HD box, xtreamer media player, mission m74 and m71 speakers and of course the Onkyo TX-NR709 av amp.
Firstly the sound quality from any source in digital surround is excellent and Im quite happy with it.
But the stereo setting and direct setting on the amp from any source including usb is terrible.
Ive tried different analogue, coaxial, hdmi and optical cables, different settings on the amp, updating the firmware, factory resetting and nothing works.
Is this "normal" for this ampifier?
My old Yamaha DSP-AX630SE AV AMP was outstanding in comparison.
Any help or suggestions would be appriciated
