Hello Crutchfield community, this is my first time posting here. I'm hoping to get some good responses on this question. I have the system listed in my Subject above. I purchased it a few years ago @bestbuy. Anyway - I was recently at a bose store, figured I'd go into the demonstration and give it a try. This sounds so much better than I've ever experienced from myYamaha system. I have it hooked up to a new 42" LCD, upconverted DVD player, and Xbox360. Anyway, through my DVD player I have it connected with an HDMI cable (video only), unfortunately my receiver doesn't have HDMI, so I used an optical cable instead.
Basically, I'm looking for some help here, is this system just not that great? Is it outdated? Or do I just not have it hooked up correctly? Speakers in the wrong positions? I plan to get the problem fixed with somebodys help, if at all possible. If you need to ask questions to help understand better, please do. Thanks
Currently working on my MBA program. I hope to return sometime in December 2010.
What kind of speakers is the HTR hooked up to?
What are you settings?
Have you triede different settings for Neo:Cinema / DTS or any other?
I'm having a hard time finding too much information on the 5835 other than this:
This reciever seems (on paper) simlar to mine.
Try to watch movice in the Neo:6 mode or DTS. See if that helps any.
The speakers are Yamaha speakers, which came with the receiver from bestbuy a while back.
Still looking for more suggestions, Thanks.

I do not think you need an SPL meeter at this point. If your ears are telling you that the sound is not what you expect than we can play with a few of the settings.
Try pulling the speakers away from the wall slightly, change the position of the subwoofer and fiddle with the speaker size settings (on the reciever) first to see if you can get any improvement.
If the receiver has different soundstage settings you can also try adjusting those to improve the sound. (if not, than maybe it is time to pruchase a new H/T setup)
I have the same system could you please send me a diagram or information how you connect the speakers. I did but am not getting any sound system says check antenna.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
