Good morning peeps,
Please help if you can.
Recently gifted with an Onkyo TX-NR901 Receiver (http://www.onkyousa.com/Products/model.php?m=TX-NR901&class=Receiver) and I am looking to use it to drive the Sennheiser HD 598s (in transit via shipment) from my laptop. So I decided to test this out with the Noontec Zoro HDs I have now.
Problem: So, I picked up the Y cable (3.5 to RCA) to connect my laptop to the receiver, and the 3.5-to-6.3mm adapter for my Zoros. I plugged everything in and tried different channels and settings (mono, stereo, direct, pure audio) and everything comes out garbled and with a weird echo. So far the best combo, I've had is using only one RCA cable (left or right) and turning the Onkya on mono.
My guess is that it has to do with the output as the input seems to work fine (tested noise from the left and right cables using windows and it worked fine). I have no idea but is there some setting that needs to be changed in order to feed music to the headphones while keeping the left and right audio signals separate. It seems to be splitting twice when I set it to stereo and Mono just sounds garbled and far away when both plugs are in, though it still isn't clear or full with just one plug.
Thank you for any help possible. PM me if you prefer, and feel free to ask for more information if necessary!
