I use mine 2-3 days a week for a few hours at a time, 90 % music and 10% movies. I listen to a lot of 2 channel music in multi channel stereo mode. I've had mine almost a year now and pleased with it. Has been reliable.
Wishing I could post in the Ultra Hi-End HT Gear ($20,000+)
Not familiar with it, but there might be others that can chime in, although you also may want to post your question in the Rotel Owner's thread ....
I don't have a 1575 but my rotel rmb 1095 that I bought new in 2002. really happy with the rotel amp and the 7701. alos have some pretty nice aerial speakers, martin logan sub and transparent cables so the whole system works really well.
i really appreciate how well the 7701 works with a good sub .. the bass shakes the house but is not boomy
Has anyone experienced this problem? Except for my sub not working before the initial update was applied when I first got my amp this setup has been a joy.
Hello - wondering on any comparisons of audio DACs of 7701 compared to those in Oppo 105 BluRay player. I couldn't find the info on the Oppo site, sorry. Want to see if the sound quality and musicality of the much-vaunted Oppo analog outs are worth the extra cost vs. the 103 player. Or if the DACs in the 7701 are equally great-sounding units and stay with normal HDMI connections for both video and audio. Thanks!
It's not so much that DACs that will be the determining factor as much as whether you prefer to have Audyssey enabled (ie. via HDMI) or not enabled (multi analog).
If you've confirmed the issue is not a result of the speakers themselves, you're likely looking at repair of the AVR.
I am new to the 7701, but the Audyssey set up provided a lot of information about the speakers. I would try running Audyssey again. I have also found the telephone support at Marantz to be excellent.
I'm using a Galaxy S II from Samsung and when i try to see my media server on it it shows just a blank screen. But I can see the server on my PC and directly on my 7701 or my TV.
Of the posts I have read, most owners who have posted of demoing both ways say there is a slight edge going HDMI as that allows you to enable Audyssey. If not using Audyssey, then the nod would go to the multi analog inputs.
Do photos of the 7701 make the lower (and larger) volume digits look smaller than they really are and can owners here read them at 12 feet away?

The 7701 does not directly support bi-amping. The easiest way to do it probably would be to use T connectors or Y cable adapters to connect the front left and right RCAs to pairs of amps. (Or RCA to one and XLR to another.) Of course, you're very unlikely to be able to hear any difference in audio quality when comparing bi-amping to using a single amp for each speaker.
FWIW, the 8801 does include bi-amp settings.

Are you referring to the AV7005 or the SR7005 as the pre-pro models do not have the "Bi-amp" feature as the pre-outs only pass the default signal assigned to each output?
Amplifier assignment for 7.2 ch (SB ch), 5.2 ch + Front Height, 5.2 ch + Front Wide, 5.2 ch + Bi-Amp, 5.2 ch + zone, or 5.2 ch + Front B
It's in the menu system under amplifier or something similar.
I spoke to someone at Marantz today and he's thinking that they did away with it on the 7701.
I demo'd an 8801 and I couldn't find any mention of it in the menu system like the AV7005 that was on loan for one night, the constant hum from that unit was awful.
Just picked up a Marantz AV7701 today. Was the owner of an AV8003.
When going into the Graphic EQ settings I only have the ability to modify the frequency settings for Front L and Front R speakers. With the AV8003 I could modify the settings for all speakers. Is there a way to enable this for all speakers or is this a bug, or by design?
