Default New/Old problem...looking for help.

I haven't been on this forum for a very very long time...but I wanted to stop by and say hello and present a new problem.

I am still using my Onkyo TX-NR1007 receiver as a pre/pro. I don't want to replace it since it's still working perfectly, however, I recently purchased a Crown XLS 1500 pro ampa which apparently requires 1.4v input. Well....I'm just NOT getting much out of this amp and as I understand it, as was a previous complaint I had about this receiver with my Emotiva UPA7 and my subwoofers, is that I'm not getting enough voltage output from the pre-outs.

So...with that said, what's the solution here? is there such a thing as a product that will take the low voltage output from the pre/pro area and increase it? It was suggested to get a minidsp unit but I have no idea about how to use it, and, that being said is there something like that which I could use to increase ALL my pre/pro outputs to a higher voltage?

I hope this all makes sense. I'm quite disappointed with this, and I guess it's been a problem since I bought the Onkyo and started using it as a pre/pro. I first noticed the issue with my subwoofers when all of a sudden they were MUCH less powerful than when I had an older Pioneer receiver. Now....I'm running into this issue again.

If there isn't a solution, what receiver is on the market that has at least 1.4v outputs from it's pre-outs? If I have to buy a new receiver, I at least want to make sure I get the right one for my applications. I'd really like to switch over to all pro amps Crown XLS 1502's etc.

well I think I found a solution that won't break the bank...although a bit of a pain in the butt...

cleanbox pro signal level amplifier 2 channel. We will see if this fixes the issue or not.

How did you make out? My older onkyo had to be donated because the sub out was not strong enough to turn on my def tech trinity sub,...which has no on/off switch. ( relies on signal alone to turn on )


The onkyo was new and around $900 bucks....I returned and went with a used Rotel pre/pro which worked great....no signal weakness could be noticed with all the pre-outs being utilized..... ( output to a 5 channel amp )


I'd go with a Yamaha.......I've never had any trouble and their pricing is fair.
Enjoy bro..
