I have the following setup: Pioneer VSX-D608 Samsung DVD-HD941 Syntax Olevia LT32HVM Subwoofer DCM SW10 I'm trying to figure out where the weak link in this is that is causing my sound to cut out while playing hardcore moments in movies where there is a lot of sound from all the speakers and plenty of bass to the lfe channel. I have my speakers set to small, so all the bass goes to the woofer. I've tried with success the following things to keep the sound from cutting out: Unhooked the subwoofer Turned the volume down Neither of which I want to do. So the pioneer doesn't cut out when i either turn the volume down or have the woofer disconnected. I've checked all of my wiring and there are no shorts or crosses. I understand that the Pioneer's act of cutting out is likely its own safety mechanism to keep it from blowing the amp. But what if it's just because it's not getting enough power? I do have a ton hooked up to the same power strip. Is it possible that a UPS power module may help? The aforementioned is my main concern, hopefully someone can help me out. If not, the following questions are to help me decide on a new receiver if all else fails. That's all I can think of. I'd love to be able to keep this receiver, I've gotten very accustomed to it and love its performance otherwise. But for the sake of asking, what stats/performance numbers should I pay attention to when researching a new reciever? I've never seen a rating for power supply, sound cut off limits, etc - will my only rule of thumb be to go with a higher quality brand name? Does anyone have some pretty substantial recomendations for brands or units that crank out the sound for demanding dvds without hiccuping? Thanks in advance.
