Do you mean all channels?
Yes we could said Channels,
When i play music in my Yamaha 1065 they show that the music is out 5.1 or 7.1 if i use the seven channel enhancer, all the 7 speakers plus the sub lights up in the display that mean are active and you can hear music thru all the speakers.
On this receiver when i play music they only show the two front channels and the other 5 speakers are not light up in the display, you cannot hear music form the other 5 speakers just from the front, all the speakers are active and configured with the MCACC, that is not the case when you watch a movie they show all the speakers.
If anybody that have the same receiver play some music Cd or MP3 and let me know how many speakers the receiver show up in the display, to see if the problem is my receiver or the way the receiver works.

If you switch the sound mode to ext.stereo you'll hear music from all 5 or 7 speakers.

Press Receiver on your remote
Press ADV SURR on the remote.

Keep pressing it until it toggles to EXT.STEREO on the display

Thanks,
That do the trick i hear the stereo on all seven speakers Now even they show only the two front speakers in the display, Probably this Pioneer show the seven speakers with the decoder Only and not when they are active, i check the manual twice and miss that i guess i was looking on the display to see how many speakers are active like the my Yamaha.

Fewer annihilative retributive stringgate hi pass originators. Those are expensive and heavy (and mostly required for top of the line sound). You get what you pay for.
your fancy words dont make any technical sense , entire statement is hot air; it also tells me you need to look up D class amps. I am sure you will.

I think it means that they had a limited time to sell the stock of that stuff... after a certain point they have to stop.
Makes sense. I was calling around to get a second one in ATL. Same response.

They seem to have the new Sony STR-DN1030 now for $399. Not sure if this is a better deal.

Amazing this thread is still active.

Which setting can I use while the air conditioner is running. I have to turn the volume almost max to hear.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I understand that this is not helpful to lot of people but they are still available in Arlington, VA Costco and I believe also in Gaithersburg, MD.

I've been having a problem with my AV system that I suspect is due to the SC1522k. Occasionally when I power everything up (Pioneer Kuro display, HTPC (always on), SC1522k), the image is all green and purple, and only power cycling fixes the issue.

I love this receiver, and I've gotten it setup where I want it, and I'm very concerned that this problem will only get worse with time. Hopefully they still have some left in stock near me so I can exchange it.

Anyone else have this issue?

I have one that I bought for a friend that is going back next week if anyone in the western suburbs of chicago wants it at the $599 plus tax price. It seems a shame to return it unopened becasue Costco will just send it back to pioneer

My dad has this issue with an HTPC connected via an HDMI cable to a VSX-9040txh and earlier a VSX-822-k. I think it is a Pioneer problem. You can try switching inputs instead of power cycling. That seemed to fix the issue temporarily on his A/V receivers.

have you tried the simple things, like switching out the hdmi cable?

check out this link for more troubleshooting tips, a couple of people had similar issues, that weren't caused by the receiver:

Yes, also available in Gaithersburg as of this past weekend (I think that was the last time I was there). Constantly drop in to see if the price will drop to pick up a 2nd one.

Wonder if they'll just end up returning unsold stock.

Sad to see they are simply being returned to Pioneer at other stores. Was really hoping for some kind of price drop on them.

It shows the input channels, i.e. if you input stereo, will show you L+R speakers, regardless of the output type.
