When using the K650 sound bar and two R1 Wireless speakers in surround sound mode over wifi with the latest firmware, The quailty of the sound K650 drops, sounds very muddy. As soon as you use the sound bar on it own, the sound bar improves. this is happening for a quite a few users.
can you help.
Madtuts, the problem is very clear with Frauhoffer test file
just put it on a pendrive or play from your tv
you can also use a multichannel sound file and play it directly via multiroom app from your phone
The outcome is the same, subwoofer is completly silent during center channel test
I have finally managed to download and try the file you have been using as I couldn't get the link to work before. You are spot on. I get no sub support for the centre channel using that file. Having said that there is no sub support for the rears either. It could just be that file that is not agreeing with the K650 as when using that file the difference in his voice is really noticeable. However, in a real world situation when listening to voice audio in movies I don't notice any difference even when it's panning around. Also in movies I get sub support for surround explosions. This is saying to me that it greatly depends on how the file is encoded. Let's hope that Simon can mess about with an encoding that he has added sub support to the centre channel. 🙂
Same here. Have done optimus test and seems fine. But appreciate what's been said that this involves front left right channels also
I am not getting tinny sounds from centre channel when waiting tv/films and all seems OK.
I have noticed from months of testing that I seem to get a different result from every test file I have played, for the good and bad.
I apologise for my lack of technical input but glad we have some guys who are experts here
For HW-K650 switch soundbar to d.in and while in standby mode, press and hold mute button for more than 5 seconds.
For the tv, you need a universal remote. Turn the tv off and with universal remote programmed to change tv channels, press mute, mute, 1, 8, 2, power. Should bring up service menu after displaying smart tv screen.
I did but to be honest I wasnt being so detailed in my assessment of the results as you guys........ Probably still on a high from the rear volume issue being fixed
I will test again with the same file in the morning and report back taking a bit more time to be sure......... And hopefully keep up with you guys
