Hi. Welcome to justanswer.You can try changing the sound mode to VOCAL Mode for better dialogue sound quality. Press the SOUND MODE button on your remote. This button switches between the Normal Mode and Vocal Mode. The ON/STANDBY LED flashes white once by selecting the Normal Mode. When the mode is switched to the Vocal Mode, the ON/STANDBY LED flashes white twice.Reply if you have any other query. Please rate the chat POSITIVELY so that I can get credited for my answer. Thanks.

I don't have a specific sound mode button on my remote. I do have three buttons under the caption Remote Mode: one is MODE and one is TV and one is RECEIVER. Shall I try one of these ?

I also wonder if I can get at the controls for the speakers so as to turn up the central speech one as I understand it is ?
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
The button will be on the Onkyo Remote. Also mention the details of the home theater system(Brand and model).
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
