Onkyo TX-NR515 multi-room speakers

Post  cookie5239 on Sun Dec 02, 2012 9:59 pm

Hi,

I am thinking of buying the Onkyo TX-NR515. I want to use it as a home theater system and for running audio through 2 other sets of speakers.

What I want to know is:

1. Can I run 1 set of speakers I plan to use for the TV as audio speakers too which will be connected to the other 2 sets of speakers in other rooms?

2. Can I then use the same set up and use the set of speakers which are connected to the TV to watch the TV and the other sets of speaks in the other rooms to listen to music?

Thanks,

Jodi

We would like more information to help advise you if this is possible. For instance- your initial question: "1. Can I run 1 set of speakers I plan to use for the TV as audio speakers too which will be connected to the other 2 sets of speakers in other rooms?" what are you planning to use to connect the other 2 sets of speakers in the other rooms- an external amplifier/ receiver or speaker selector box? How are you planning to make these connections- using RCA Audio cables or digital audio cables?

Now for question # 2. "Can I then use the same set up and use the set of speakers which are connected to the TV to watch the TV and the other sets of speaks in the other rooms to listen to music?" That would basically reflect on what configuration you'd like to employ for this audio setup. In regards to your issue- it would possibly be more effective to contact our Product Support Dept. for further assistance with this specific issue via our phone number and hours of operation below.

muti room speakers

Post  cookie5239 on Sat Dec 08, 2012 2:58 am

Hi,

I have bought the TX NR 515 and am planning top use it for multi room speakers only. I have 3 sets of speakers (3x2). One set of speakers lives next to TV, one lives in the lounge and the 3rd as outdoor speakers. I have installed an on/off switch on all 4 speakers which are not next to my tv so that I can swich them off while watching TV. But when I listen to music, I will want either 2 sets or 3 sets of speakers on playing throughout the house. What is the best plug in configuration for such a set up? Would it be 'front' for the 2 TV speakers, 'Zone 2' for the lounge room speakers and 'Surround back or front high' for the outdoor speakers which only get used occasionally at low volume?

Thanks.

With the receiver set to "all channel stereo" that should work.

The zone two will be in stereo anyway but to get the third room speakers to output stereo at the same level as those by the TV, all channel stereo should be your best option.

Onkyo TX-NR515 set up

Post  cookie5239 on Wed Dec 12, 2012 2:49 am

Hi,

I started the initial set up of my Okyo 515 and could not find the menu on my Sony Bravia 850 TV. I then left the room and the set menu had disappeared. I'm not getting anything here. Everything was plugged in prior to powering the Onkyo for the first time.

Thanks for your help.
