Ensure the speaker settings for your speakers are correct. Turn Dolby Pro Logic , DTS NEO:6 or SFC on. Turn DVD ANALOG 6CH off. You cannot use Dolby Pro Logic , DTS NEO:6 or SFC when input is PCM with sampling frequencies of 192 or 176.4 (COAXIAL1). Set the DTS Digital Audio Output setting on the DVD player or DVD recorder to Bitstream. Depending on the input source, sound may be distorted if you increase the SFC speaker level or effect. If this happens, decrease the SFC speaker level or effect. Connect the appropriate antenna. (You may need an outdoor antenna or one with more elements.) Adjust the position of the FM or AM antenna. Reduce the treble. Turn off nearby televisions, video decks, DVD players, and satellite receivers. Separate the antenna from other cables, cords, and appliances. Try changing the BEAT PROOF mode. Change the frequency step to suit your area when AM is selected. 12, 21

Panasonic SA-XR55 260
A quality home cinema receiver, offering very good value for money for those that dont need too much power
Panasonics new digital receiver is an attractive and sleek beast, a common attribute of digital amplifiers. It sports 7 x 100W of digital amplification in a compact cabinet, although in the real world that translates to approximately 50-60W per channel. The range of connections is impressive including component video switching, S-video and composite backup and four digital audio inputs, in both optical and electrical varieties. Speaker terminals are solid binding posts, a signal that Panasonic has some serious aspirations for the model despite the modest price tag. Sound formats include everything wed expect Dolby Digital-EX, DTS ES Matrix and Discrete, DTS Neo:6, DTS 96:24 and Dolby Pro-Logic IIx and there is also provision for DVDAudio and Super Audio CD playback. The SA-XR55 has a nifty trick up its sleeve as well. When a stereo sound source is selected, the Dual Amp drive system is automatically engaged, doubling up the power to the main stereo speakers. There is bi-wiring capability as well, in case you want to connect the woofer and tweeter of your speakers separately (youll obviously need bi-wirable speakers to hold up their side of the deal here). Operation of the deck is rather straightforward, namely because it

doesnt offer much in the way of features. There is a soundfield control option, offering various sound modes (Live, Rock/Pop, Vocal, Jazz and Dance for music sources, Drama, Action, Sports, Musical and Game for TV and movie fare), and thats about it. The lack of features isnt really an issue, but it would have been useful to have a pure audio mode for music sources, something that finds its way on to many decks at this price. There is also no audio delay feature. This will either be important to you or entirely irrelevant. The AM/FM RDS tuner has 30 presets and the remote can control other kit.
able to handle a wave of subtle sound effects with clarity, driving the speakers with assurance. In fact, this is one of the best performances weve experienced from a digital amplifier, especially at this price point.
Take the strain
The performance suffers a little as you turn the volume up, and at very high settings it can become rather harsh. Soundtracks lose their smoothness and the receiver sounds like it is straining to produce the volume. This shouldnt be an issue for most installations, and on stereo sources the deck delivers a decent enough performance as well, although DVDAudio playback doesnt do justice to the format. This may be an added feature that is really an afterthought. This is an impressive receiver, most at home in a home cinema setup and less suited for music sources. As a middleweight centrepiece it is well equipped to do the job. Dont push it too hard or youll expose the rough edges in the design. Keep to sensible levels and you will be well rewarded I
The bold and the beautiful
When pushed into service the SAXR55 does an impressive job. We listened to a range of movie material and were pleased with the overall performance. At normal listening levels the receiver delivers a bold, punchy and controlled sound. It is
