    What would be the possible reasons for the Bass, Treble, and Balance knobs not functioning on a receiver.

    I have recently sold my unit and the person who purchased it mentioned that the knobs don't do anything.

    I mentioned to him to perform a system reset to clear all input and speaker level settings (reference calibration and small/large). I know when the receiver left my house, front and rear channels were set to small thus sending my LFE to the sub channel. Would this disable the Bass knob? I can't think of a reason the other knobs wouldn't work.

    Any ideas? Anyone ever run into this before?

    There is a "Tone" feature in HKs which if it is "Tone-out", it bypasses these controls..."Tone-in" puts these controls on line.

    Glad you were able to sell your unit...I was interested but ended up getting a Marantz unit just because it is cheaper and I already have an HK AVR. Good luck with your twins...I am expecting my self in 2 weeks....

    I just looked that up in the manual and I bet a million bucks that this is the issue. Thank you. I don't know if I ever even noticed that. I never messed with any of those knobs.

    My wife is 32 weeks. The twins could come tomorrow or we are hoping we'll see them in 4 weeks. Who knows. Scary stuff going from 1 kid to 3. All of a sudden we're outnumbered!

    Congratulations Daniel.

    I don't know if HK is this way even though I currently own one (I don't use the tone controls). My old Kenwood recvr only allowed adjustment to the tone controls when in stereo mode...all surround modes disabled the tone controls.
