Ok I have had the 976 for about 6 months now. I had a home remodel and reinstalled my equipment a few months back. My audio volume is way off. I have to turn the volume knob way up in order to get loud audio. What have I done wrong?

I am thinking it is the HDMI cables.

Make sure you're hearing sound from all the speakers, especially the center channel if you're talking about movie sound. I wouldn't think it's the HDMI cables. If you're getting picture and sound, the cables/connections should be good.

Put it in all stereo mode and try the radio source which eliminates external connections. if the sound improves check the amp and its connections. If not check the audio settings.

I removed my XLR cables and that resolved the issue.

So, you had both XLR and RCA cables hooked up at the same time? and this lead to the low volume?
