I'm trying to set the Dynamic Compression level, but only get that option with Dolby Digital streams. Is DC not available when playing DTS?

Would it make sense to hook up a marantz sr7007 to an emotiva upa-700 power amp or will i need something more substantial to notice any difference in the sound quality?

Something more substantial (eg. XPA-2, XPA-3), although even then likely no difference in sound quality, rather simply more power for low ohm speakers.

Thanks jd. Diving into and getting immersed in the hi fi pool as opposed to just sipping your toes in is much more of a. Challenge and learning.

In all likelihood the question is very stupid, but I am not very adept at this so would appreciate any help.

I was wondering how I can connect my phone (Nexus 4) to my receiver? I would like to play some music on my phone on my surround sound, and was wondering the best way to go about that. I heard of the term media server thrown around in here, is that something that could get this done? For some reason when I go to media server on the receiver it's not recognizing my phone. I was hoping to connect my phone to the receiver using bluetooth, but if I'm not mistaken you have to purchase the pretty pricey RX-101 to connect bluetooth devices?

Sorry for the long question/bunch of questions. Would really appreciate some help!

Thanks!
I have a Galaxy Note 3. Both my SR7007 and the phone are on the same network. And in the music player a stream to button appear in the music player, this way i can stream via wifi to the receiver. Works great. Not sure if the Nexus has it, but im sure you can download an app that can stream via DLNA.

I had a few questions about the receiver, if anyone could help me out that would be great!

1.) I ran Audussey setup and at an initial volume at 12 o'clock the dB level on the subwoofer was maxed out around -12. I got it down to about -3dB when it was set at around 7 or 8 o'clock (almost minimum). I increased this to around -1db because I prefer more bass. However, now when I listen to music or watch a movie, etc. I can't really feel any bass from the subwoofer, I could barely even tell the subwoofer was working. Any recommendations regarding this?

2.) I read that the front speakers should be set to 'small' to let the subwoofer work as intended. However, when I run Audussey, it automatically labels my front speakers as large. After calibration, I had to manually set up the speakers as small using manual setup. Is this okay (i.e. is it okay if during calibration the speakers were large and then setting them to small after the fact?).

3.) My receiver is currently connected to my Sharp aquous lc-80le650u through an HDMI cable. The HDMI cable runs from the TV (ARC compatible) to the TV output on my receiver. However, when I play apps on my TV (Netflix, YouTube) it doesn't use my external/surround sound speakers. I called sharp but they said the customer support agent said that any app that streams, which includes Netflix and YouTube, will not use external speakers. From what I know, this is not true but he seemed pretty adamant. I was wondering if anyone had similar issues or know a solution in regards to this. I think maybe it has to do with the fact that the HDMI cable running from the TV to the "TV output" is perhaps old and not ARC compatible? Or perhaps I need a separate cable from the TV to go in one of the inputs?

4.) Lastly, I have a DLNA-certified application on my phone, but the app rarely ever recognizes the marantz receiver (I would say about 20% of the time). My TV is almost always recognized by my phone, so I have no idea why it fails to pick up the marantz. Just for refernce purposes, the app I am using is BubbleUPnP.

I know its a lot of questions, but I would really appreciate any help! Thanks, and I really appreciate the community here
