I tried my sub on max volume and the bass is low. How you can get a high bass volume with the 5500??? If you show me how, i will keep my 5500. I bought 5500 for power and i cant get it. I put my sub volume on MAX and i put surround and center on minimum and the bass is not high if i compare to z-5300e. And more, you cant reduce volume of the front speaker. You can only change the volume of the rear, sub and the center speaker. I find that stupid. Its impossible for me to get a big bass on low volume
I cant get "6 direct ch" with coaxial.... I find that stupid too. How you can play to 5.1 game with the coaxial??? You cant. You need to use jack for that. Thus, digital is not useful has anything. If you cant use digital for all use, its preferable to buy a less expensive system without digital. Now i try to find how to listen music on 5 speakers without diform sound on rear(pro logic 2). You can only hear good sound on Stereo X2 but only use 4 speakers.
If you can fix all this problem, ill keep the z-5500... If not, refund
Sorry, i dont understand your last question

I honestly dont understand how you are having trouble getting bass unless either something is faulty or you dont have it connected to your PC (or whatever you have it connected to) correctly or there is some setting somewhere that is very wrong
do you have this same problem when using all the inputs and all the effects settings for each input?
can you test the z5500 with another source other than your PC to test it?
its hard to know what is going on without being able to see your setup but maybe one of these will help narrow down where the issue is
as for the digital inputs not giving the 6 channel sound directly that is because this is impossible - the only way you can get surround sound out of a single 1 or 2 core connection (optical or coaxial) is to have dolby decoding on both ends of the cable - games dont do this, but the z5500 is designed for watching DVDs and listening to music as well - hence being THX certified - and most if not all DVD players have dolby decoding, certainly all that have an optical out or a digital coaxial sound out should as should your sound card if you have these connections or not

Yes... I get alway this problem with coaxial and jack. And i get this problem too with all effect settings. All is correctly connected and all setting is perfect(bass volume on maximum). I only have problem with the z-5500. No problem with my z-5300e
I tried on another source and its the same... Maybe the bass is better on z-5500 but speakers too. Speakers give more sound then the z-5300e, its why i hear less the bass of the subwoofer. But i want to reduce all speakers volume for hear more the bass but i only can ajust the rear and the center volume. I cant ajust the front volume. Its that the problem
Its not a faulty because i bought him in a big expert computer shop(microbytes)
I get the rear distortion problem with coaxial and jack too when im on Pro Logic 2. No problem when im on Stereo X2 or direct 6 ch.
