And here's my unit:
I'm sort of afraid to modify it since it's all under my 2yr warranty and I don't want to void it.
I just wish I could get more sound out of it... Or just skip the external speakers and have it play audio to the tv. Then a sound bar or something similar could provide more volume.
OK...well the unit and the speakers are fairly sucko...but first lets make sure you are getting all the sound voume possible from them on playback.
1. Rotate the volume up all the way.
2. Push the volume button in and then maximize both bass and treble.
3. Try the different equalization settings.
Not much improvement? Then you need to go to an external powered speaker or speaker bar. You DO have conventional yellow/red/white audio video output jacks on the rear of the unit. just use the red and white jacks since you don't need the yellow for sound...and run them to powered speakers or speaker bar for better sound.
The trim ring on your unit pries off (carefully) to reveal 4 screws which allow removal of the unit...plug in the cable to the jacks on the back and then run it where you want to put your speakers. Then just bolt it back together the same way. NO WARRANTY violation since the unit is being used in accordance with mfr. instructions! Just be careful with the trim ring but superglue can fix anything!
