I must be doing something wrong. I bought a new Sherwood 100Wx6 channel receiver and hooked the DVD up to it. When I played a DVD there was sound, but it sounded tinny and at a very very low volume, even when I cranked the sound all the way up.(by low volume, I mean you had to put your ear near the speaker to hear it). This happened even when I used the receiver's FM tuner. As an experiment I then disconnected the receiver and hooked up an old stereo receiver I own (NAD 55w/channel) to the freont speakers. Same problem. The speakers in question are Atlantic 251LR bookshelf speakers. I also hauled a Klipsch speaker up from downstairs -- same bad result. Is it possible I'm hooking up to the receivers incorrectly? I alternately tried each of the inputs, DVD, Tape, Video player, CD, etc. Didn't make any difference. Why can't these receivers push these speakers?
